Re: Routing wars pending?
From: Alan Hannan <[email protected]> What are the correlations and contrasts between our current backbone routing problems (wrt space and # of routes) and the FCC decision several years ago to make 1-800 numbers portable. Well, the 800 number problem was a little easier, since phone numbers are variable length, and the 800 number database maps the numbers into another phone number, which may be a 13-digit carrier-id+phone-number combo... They say get stuffed, and get a congress person to propose a bill that all IP numbers are portable. This bill passes. It could happen. Any thoughts? Exactly which court do they go to to get this enforced on non-US parts of the Internet? Noel
