Have you ever wanted to know more about Internet peering? Then you’ll definitely want to check out the Dr. Peering  web site set up by Bill Norton, a co-founder of Equinix who has written many white papers about peering. The site was launched in February based on an idea developed over beers at the Global Peering Forum.
The site features Norton’s many peering white papers , including his widely-discussed analysis of the ”wave of disruption” from Internet video. There’s also the Ask Dr. Peering  question and answer column, which this month examines Transit Provider Selection .
Peering  allows two providers exchanging large volumes of traffic to save money by connecting directly, rather than routing traffic across their paid Internet connections. Peering is often free as long as the amount of traffic exchanged is not out of balance, providing substantial cost savings for bandwidth for high-traffic sites and networks.
