In summary, the world's established core routers are situated at the top level of the internet backbone and are owned by Tier 1 companies such as Level 3 Communications, TeliaSonera International Carrier, CenturyLink, Vodafone, Verizon, Sprint, and AT&T Corporation. These routers run on major protocols such as BGP (Border Gateway Protocol) which is used to route blocks of IP addresses between networks. The core routers themselves may use various protocols such as ATM, Frame Relay, OHC, SONET, X.25, or X.75 within their own networks.

Where are the world's Established core routers situated? On which major protocols do they run?

You would also want to look into BGP protocol.

Border Gateway Protocol
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Border_Gateway_Protocol

The main thing to wrap your mind around is that this is used to route blocks of IP addresses (Called Subnets or Supranets) instead of individual addresses. To get your feet wet you would want to try using an AS Lookup tool.

BGP Toolkit

BGP is used to cross from a network owned by one company through to a network owned by another company, or a major subdivision of a very large network within the same company. So this would get you to the core router, and would be used between two core routers on two different networks. The core router itself might be running ATM, Frame Relay, OHC, SONET, X.25, X.75, ect, from core router to core router within its own network.
 

Related to Established core routers of the world

What are established core routers?

Established core routers are high-performance network devices that are responsible for routing data packets across the internet. They are typically located at the center of a network and are used to connect different networks together.

How many established core routers are there in the world?

It is difficult to determine the exact number of established core routers in the world, as it is constantly changing. However, it is estimated that there are thousands of these routers functioning globally.

Which companies produce the most established core routers?

Some of the leading companies that produce established core routers include Cisco, Juniper Networks, Huawei, and Nokia. These companies have a strong presence in the networking industry and are known for their high-quality and reliable routers.

What are the benefits of using established core routers?

Established core routers offer numerous benefits, including high performance, reliability, and scalability. They are designed to handle large amounts of data traffic and can be easily upgraded to meet the growing demands of a network.

How do established core routers differ from other types of routers?

Unlike other types of routers, established core routers are specifically designed for the backbone of a network. They have a larger capacity and are optimized for speed and efficiency, making them essential for the smooth functioning of the internet.
