Networks change over time, and so do their needs. In response, network operators are constantly improving the services they offer, which often leads to proposals for new features to extend network protocols. To help speed up network innovation, we introduce xBGP, which allows all BGP implementation…

The Domain Name System (DNS) has traditionally relied on response codes to signal anomalies, but they are of little help to precisely identify the root causes behind failures. In this article, we examine the new Extended DNS Errors (EDE) mechanism that provides extra feedback on DNS resolutions.
Using real-time data about electricity around the world, we annotated network connections with carbon-intensity. With this information, any digital infrastructure provider can move their compute workloads to greener regions.
