Title

Resilience of Backbone Provider Networks

Abstract

Network topology models have drawn tremendous interest from the research community. Traditionally, Internet modelling has been done at the as or router level, in part because this information is most available from tomography and public databases such as Rocketfuel. We argue that physical topology analysis is important for a more complete understanding of Internet structure, particularly for insight into the resilience and survivability of infrastructure against attacks and natural disasters. However, complexity and lack of complete data sets has hindered accurate topology modelling. in this short paper, we show through a sample case that physical topologies have significantly different characteristics from traffic engineering and router-level overlays, and are important for analysis of geographically-correlated failures.
