  1. Peering

    In computer networking, peering is a voluntary interconnection of administratively separate Internet networks for the purpose of exchanging traffic between the customers of each network. The pure definition of peering is settlement-free or "sender keeps all," meaning that neither party pays the other for the exchanged traffic; instead, each derives revenue from its own customers. Peering requires physical interconnection of the networks, an exchange of routing information through the Border Gateway Protocol routing protocol and is often accompanied by peering agreements of varying formality, from "handshake" to thick contracts. Marketing and commercial pressures have led to the word “peering” being also used routinely when there is some settlement involved, even though that does not correspond to the original technical meaning of the word. The phrase "settlement-free peering" is in turn used to unambiguously describe the pure cost-free peering situation.

Examples of peering in a Sentence

  1. Musin Almat Zhumabekovich:

    1. Peering into reality, you see more, you see superfluous. 2. Love will disappear only greedy egoism will remain when people are born only from a test tube, and surrogate mothers. Surrogate love is replaced by lust. Love will die, only greedy lust will remain. 3. Human instincts deprive of honor and give rise to the vices of despair, and this is worse than animals. 4. Life is the nostalgia of happiness which is replaced by the amnesia of eternity. Consciousness turns into undead, merged together with the endless voids of reality. 5. Life is the rate of rotting meat, accelerates maturity or infantilism in which a desperate attempt is made to prolong happiness. Author: Musin Almat Zhumabekovich

  2. Germaine Greer:

    Maybe I couldn't make it. Maybe I don't have a pretty smile, good teeth, nice tits, long legs, a cheeky ass, a sexy voice. Maybe I don't know how to handle men and increase my market value, so that the rewards due to the feminine will accrue to me. Then again, maybe I'm sick of the masquerade. I'm sick of pretending eternal youth. I'm sick of belying my own intelligence, my own will, my own sex. I'm sick of peering at the world through false eyelashes, so everything I see is mixed with a shadow of bought hairs; I'm sick of weighting my head with a dead mane, unable to move my neck freely, terrified of rain, of wind, of dancing too vigorously in case I sweat into my lacquered curls. I'm sick of the Powder Room. I'm sick of pretending that some fatuous male's self-important pronouncements are the objects of my undivided attention, I'm sick of going to films and plays when someone else wants to, and sick of having no opinions of my own about either. I'm sick of being a transvestite. I refuse to be a female impersonator. I am a woman, not a castrate.

  3. Phyllis McGinley:

    Sometimes I have a notion that what might improve the situation is to have women take over the occupations of government and trade and to give men their freedom. Let them do what they are best at. While we scrawl interoffice memos and direct national or extranational affairs, men could spend all their time inventing wheels, peering at stars, composing poems, carving statues, exploring continents -- discovering, reforming, or crying out in a sacramental wilderness. Efficiency would probably increase, and no one would have to worry so much about the Gaza Strip or an election.

  4. Edgar Allan Poe:

    Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before.

  5. Chris Froome:

    I saw this guy just peering around and I thought,' That looks a bit strange,' as I got there he just sort of launched this cup toward me and said( in French)' Doper !'.
