PREDICT Dataset Highlight

US Long-Haul Fiber Map
By Paul Barford

Despite some 20 years of research efforts that have focused on understanding aspects of the Internet’s infrastructure such as its router-level topology or AS-level connectivity, very little is known about today’s physical Internet where individual components such as cell towers, routers or switches, and fiber-optic cables are concrete entities with well-defined geographic locations.  This data set provides a first-of-its-kind map of the US long haul fiber infrastructure.  The map is a composite of openly available maps of 20 US fiber providers and is comprised of 273 nodes and 542 conduits.  Importantly, the details of the connectivity and shared use of conduits has been verified using public records on rights-of-way.

Details of the map and an evaluation of shared risk and opportunities to improve robustness and performance are described in our ACM SIGCOMM ’15 paper entitled “InterTubes:  A Study of the US Long-haul Fiber-optic Infrastructure”.

The dataset that is made available through PREDICT includes the image of the map as well as a table that provides all details on connectivity represented in the map.
