I have to chuckle reading this thread.Attempts to "standardize" inter-NOC communication happened a couple of times in the early 90's in the IETF, but it got too ugly, with too many barriers (basically people not wanting to expose dirty laundry). I fear that attempts to do so now when the providers are *really* competing with each other (as opposed to back in the old daze when we were all friends :-) will suffer the same fate, other than on a pairwise basis between NOCs that cooperate well with each other anyway. dave
We can't even get our NOCs to talk to each other, and Marketing people think we can do Inter-Provider QOS??
Hopefully I will have retired at an early age before we burn that bridge :)
