Brief description The Internet is by its nature international, and so any such effort to model and understand it must be somewhat international. However, Australia has longer network paths to the rest of the world and the routing protocols' operation depends on this latency. This emphasizes why Australia must participate in such research: to ensure that Australian issues are considered when Internet protocols are designed. This project will directly deliver a more robust Internet for Australia, international exposure in an area of general interest, the potential for patents, and the development of commercially valuable expertise and measurement infrastructure.
