So today at the Routing Area Open Meeting you have explicitly expressed
the concern that "routing is about to collapse".
I found this statement very interesting.
I have been following and discussing with various folks this new wave of
fixing the routing. In fact I have my own set of ideas which are in fact
very very close to what Lixia was already proposing. Till now even
looking ten years ahead no one can show the significant proof that
"routing is about to collapse".
Contrary there are number of vendors with deployed platforms which are
today carrying ten fold number of routes what today's internet carry for
some other applications.
So I think perhaps it is late before the BOF ... do you have data
references which would lead you to believe that routing is about to
really collapse ?
PS. Said all of the above I think there are many other benefits for
introducing the hierarchy in the inter domain routing .. hence I am very
much supporting this as individual. I am just trying to make sure we
focus on the correct problem not the imaginary/non-existent ones :).
