Internet exchange in Bangladesh and future improvement of its infrastructure
MetadataShow full item record
Internet Exchange or IX is an Inter connection between ISPs in Bangladesh intended to keep local traffic local. There are over 70 ISPs in Bangladesh, which are providing Internet service to the customers. However, there are only about 15 ISPs that are connected with IX. If all the ISPs are connected with IX then we can prevent the loss of huge bandwidth, minimize the cost, and promote better and faster Internet service to the customers. Our project would include study of the amount of local traffic vs. foreign traffic. It would then work out the benefits of keeping local traffic local. We would study the work of BTRC, ISPs, SDNP and BIDS. We would invite members of the ISP Association and show the results of our study. Output of the project would be individual ISP benefits, national benefits and possible recommendations for BTRC.
