To effectively deal with the forecast tsunami of mobile video, mobile networks need to evolve from communications networks to video distribution networks. There are technology disjoints in end to end mobile video delivery, which drives a need for increased communication and knowledge share between all parties in the chain. Industry-wide engagement will create a mobile video ecosystem, improve...

Segment Routing is a new approach to implementing IP/MPLS networks proposed within the IETF. It aims to simplify the control plane implementation of existing MPLS networks, as well as to address the challenge of providing scalable source routing capabilities to MPLS - both for service provision, traffic engineering and fast re-route. This talk aims to provide an introduction to the motivations...

Increasing numbers of Internet-connected fridges and grandparents, together with cloud-based service delivery hysteria, are pushing availability requirements for web-accessible services through the roof. Subscribers are less interested in the reasons for failure, and are largely disinclined to try and call anybody for help (who would they call?) Service unavailability leads to lost...

DNS amplification attacks have evolved considerably and now regularly stress DNS resolvers, networks, and operations teams. Attackers can easily generate gigabits of traffic with modest skills and resources by targeting home gateways with open DNS proxies. Tens of millions of these devices are scattered across the internet and Best Common Practices such as preventing address spoofing and...

Mark Townsley (Cisco)
As more and more ISPs provide IPv6 to residential subscribers, the IETF Homenet Working Group has been aiming to to “raise the bar” for networking in the home, allowing for global, end to end, IP connectivity not just to the home, but within the home as well. Mark will talk about what has been going on in the IETF as well as Open Standards development in order improve our home network...
Rob Evans (UKNOF/JANET)
Over the past year, Janet, which serves education and research in the UK, has been refreshed with a new dark fibre infrastructure. At the start of Janet’s 30th anniversary year, this presentation will describe some of the design decisions that went into building Janet6, some of the lessons we learned whilst we were building it, and where we’re looking to go from here.
Prof. Barry Forde (B4RN)
B4RN is building an FTTH network in the deeply rural areas around the Lune Valley and forest of Bowland AONB. The area covers 420Km2 but contains only 3500 properties. The project will deliver PtP 1Gbs symmetrical to every property within the 23 parishes included in the scheme. With an average dig distance of >200m per property this would normally be considered totally uneconomic for any...

How hard is it to build a network which is independent of London? Can you take an existing network with a heavy London concentration and turn it into something more distributed? What about being regional from scratch? What might it look like to the rest of the UK if a significant network failure were to hit London? New regional connectivity initiatives in the UK are currently proving...
Mr Anand Buddhdev (RIPE NCC)
Ansible is a new configuration and system management tool written in python. It has quite a large library of modules to manage various aspects of a Linux system, and new modules are being added all the time. It's also trivial to write one's own custom modules using a simple API. Ansible differs from tools like cfengine and puppet in one major area: it's push-based. In other words, there's...
