Chinese Internet AS-level topology

Zhou, S.; Zhang, G.-Q.; Zhang, G.-Q.; (2007) Chinese Internet AS-level topology. IET Communications , 1 (2) pp. 209-214. 10.1049/iet-com:20060518.

The first complete measurement of the Chinese Internet topology at the autonomous systems (AS) level based on traceroute data probed from servers of major ISPs in mainland China is presented. Both the Chinese Internet AS graph and the global Internet AS graph can be accurately reproduced by the positive-feedback preference model with the same parameters. This result suggests that the Chinese Internet preserves well the topological characteristics of the global Internet. This is the first demonstration of the Internet's topological fractality, or self-similarity, performed at the level of topology evolution modelling.
