There is growing evidence that mutually beneficial outcomes can be achieved when content distribution overlays and their underlying ISPs collaborate through open interfaces. We further contribute to this body of work by considering consolidated topology construction strategies that integrate the information provided by multiple ISPs. We focus on situations with potentially conflicting, asymmetric preference costs, since these situations are expected to benefit more from the tradeoffs provided by consolidation to produce an overlay topology with desirable global properties. In this paper we develop a generic model for the multi-domain consolidation of ISP preferences expressed as costs for pairwise peer connections, where peers are grouped into clusters based on topology criteria. Using this model, we propose two consolidated topology construction strategies: Shared Cost, designed to provide a tradeoff for preference cost asymmetries, and Low Cost, designed to reduce the overall preference cost that the overlay imposes on all its underlying ISPs. We evaluate these two models through extensive simulations over a wide range of ISP and peer cluster sizes, and we show that preference consolidation can provide ISPs with outcomes more aligned with their preferences than those provided by non-consolidated operation.
