    I’m sure most of us are in the same boat: I enjoy exploring. On the internet that takes the form up scanning, poking and prodding at systems and hosts.

    When looking at Comcast infrastructure, you will be greeted with things like

    [be-302-cr14.56marietta.ga.ibone.comcast.net](https://be-302-cr14.56marietta.ga.ibone.comcast.net/)
    [be-1413-cs04.houston.tx.ibone.comcast.net](https://be-1413-cs04.houston.tx.ibone.comcast.net/)

    These seemingly represent different switches and routers along the path to the destination.

    I’ve seen ibone & ccal along the way and I believe ibone are major routers since I see things like:


    5.|– ae-2-ar01.fresno.ca.ccal.comcast.net
    6.|– be-33667-cr02.losangeles.ca.ibone.comcast.net

    Which would indicate that ccal are more local compared to ibone which route interstate traffic.

    Hoping to learn more about how Comcast networks are designed and connected. I really only have experience with home and business networks so learning about how an ISP is designed would be really interesting.
