Depends on the services you're offering. Check Cisco Press/Amazon for some books.

Re: IP SPACE

typically,how do ISP's connect to internet ?for example Cisco.com is using

MCI in USA and say MCI is not available in canada and I am in canada and I want to reach cisco.com ,how do I get there myself if I am ISP.You may tell me I have to go through backlbone,who are these backbone providers ?

Re: IP SPACE

As an ISP you should have a minimum of two disparate connections, each to a tier 1 provider. Here's a list I found of tier 1 providers, but I can't speak for how accurate it is.

Re: IP SPACE

Your IP space without BGP will be static.

The ISP will do something like this:

If you own 23.1.0.0/16

The command they will key in will be:

ip route 23.1.0.0 255.255.0.0 or exit interface

The requirements for an ISP, ability to peer with larger ISP's. Redundant and fault tolerant links. Expert staff to work backbone issues, and peering issues. Customer Service that speaks clearly for your customers.

Oh yeah...lots of money! OC connections are not cheap...

Re: IP SPACE

Hi,

1- Yes, As Upstream ISPs could advertise your IP block without aregistered AS number.

2- If you mean the technical requirment, then the following are basics:

a- Proper Network design.

b- Proper Capacity planning.

c- Hardware requirment.

d- Redundancy.

e- Security

f- QoS (As some customers requires special handling).

Its therfore, varies and depend on the Scope of the work to run the ISP.

Some ISPs started partially and build up thier ISP gradually, and some started with fully prepared & complete infrastructure.
