Re: Uddingston ML5 2 Upstream Channels

Similar ping to what I get seems Preston is a good site to test to must be good routing to there.

Will be interesting to see if our ping goes down once they open the Edinbugh LINX peering should be good not to have to go through England all the time...

This is my test to Preston on wireless.

Re: Uddingston ML5 2 Upstream Channels

My tests there were done via Ethernet, the only wireless devices I have are iPhones, iPads ect.

That will be interesting to see. Any clue when that's meant to happen?

Re: Uddingston ML5 2 Upstream Channels

I'm not sure, I should be able to find out as it will be hosted in one of the datacenters that the company I work for have.

Don't think its that far away to be honest which is good.

So does this mean that all the traffic from Uddingston will go through Edinburgh and not England.

Well a lot of the traffic if Virgin's routing behaves as it should it should then go through Edinburgh out to the world which should save having to do down to London etc. Happy routing days indeed!

Re: Uddingston ML5 2 Upstream Channels

As I said I work for the company where it will go through.

If you google for Internet exchange Scotland you can find a bit more information about it.

Here is a pretty good read on it http://blogs.scotland.gov.uk/digital...-for-scotland/

Re: Uddingston ML5 2 Upstream Channels

So if i have got this right LINX will instill it's equipment in a up & running data center at your work Jumping. So lets say IXScotland goes live September will virgin move straight onto it or will they wait for a couple of months.


Sorry if this is a stupid question

Re: Uddingston ML5 2 Upstream Channels

I know Virgin is already involved with it as most big internet companies are. So im hoping Virgin will have their routing setup for it as soon as it goes live....but we are talking about Virgin here

Virgin and routing tend not to go together very well

Preston is good for VM customers because it's hosted on VM's own network, and a relatively decent part of it too.

WTF is Edinburgh LINX? LINX is London Internet eXchange. London is not in Edinburgh.

We already have a major IXP in Scotland and Virgin already connect to it, as do most other major ISPs.

Chances are if they build a new one, it'll be right next to the old one, which also happens to be right next VM's biggest datacentre in Scotland anyway. I doubt they'll take much time to "move straight onto it" when they're already sat next door.

Then again everything VM does around here is either slow or to save money, and this doesn't save them much money so go figure...

Hah.

Indeed, VM has had interconnects in Scotland with all the major providers for years and yet uses none of them for consumer broadband.

There's very little "the world" reachable from Edinburgh for any data to go. The only traffic that VM would benefit from sending over the link is to central and northern Scotland, which bluntly speaking, contains nothing of internetery significance.

For all other traffic, it is of benefit to VM to keep it on their own network as far as possible, which means taking it down to London or Amsterdam internally and routing it out from there.

Even at the biggest Scottish universities - the biggest non-ISP data carriers around, with thousands of internal servers and a captive audience - you'd be surprised how little traffic actually goes or stays anywhere near Scotland.

Re: Uddingston ML5 2 Upstream Channels

Bought a new router chepo Tenda N60 to be able to get some 5Ghz seems to work pretty well with my new wireless card that can do 2.4Ghz & 5Ghz.

Unfortunately I seem to been moved to different upstream channels during the tinkering and my IP changed from 80. something to 213.x.x.x need to try and force myself back to upstream channel 1 & 2 instead of 4&5 as the new graph isn't as good and smooth.

Re: Uddingston ML5 2 Upstream Channels

It might not help with the upstreams, but you may be able to get your old IP back by changing the MAC address on the Tenda to the MAC address your old router was using.
