I can not understand this TCP traceroute map:
This is a TCP traceroute from Chongqing,China to LA,USA:
18.104.22.168 is Beijing Unicom the
22.214.171.124 is LA Unicom.
the path is this:
Why the Beijing next-hop arrive the LA?
the bellow snapshots shows the cities, and the submarine optical cable map, if network from China to USA, must go through the submarine optical cable, but why there directly from Beijing,China to LA,USA?
surely it doesn't mean that at least go through the Shanghai or Qingdao, or Guangdong?
Is it pass through satellite network? I don't think so.
