A weighted graph approach to IP geolocation

When you load a page on the internet, or watch a video, or send an email, packets of information travel along a path from your computer to the destination. Where does this path go? If both you and your destination are located in the same country, does the path respect international boundaries? We propose a method for answering these questions that builds upon previous techniques. Our partner organization, CloudPBX Inc, develops and operates network infrastructure for telephonic communications. They are interested in offering their customers the assurance that their calls are not unintentionally crossing international borders.
