Virtual POP Design

In parts of the world where Globenet had customers but did not have the possibility or the desire to extend the Globenet network, it elected to deploy virtual POPs (VPOPs). A VPOP is a POP managed by Globenet but colocated in the premises of another service provider. It is connected to the rest of Globenet’s network via inter-AS TE LSPs providing bandwidth guarantees. More specifically, not only do such TE LSPs span multiple AS boundaries, but those autonomous systems belong to different service providers, which requires close cooperation.

This section, which describes the VPOP design, is one of the most specific aspects of the Globenet network design.
