The recently-published Nemertes study, Internet Interrupted: Why Architectural Limitations Will Fracture the â€˜Net, includes a fine overview of the Internet, explaining public and private peering, content delivery networks, and overlay networks. It was necessary for the study to cover this ground as it had to correct the mistaken picture of Internet traffic thatâ€™s been foisted off on the regulating public by the MINTS study published by Andrew Odlyzko. MINTS only studies data gathered from public peering centers, a part of the Internet at which traffic growth is significantly lower than it is at private peering centers. Nemertes has a controversial model of traffic growth, but for understanding the way the Internet is put together, it’s excellent.
