Mr Brian Nisbet (HEAnet)
In 2013 HEAnet partially rebuilt and greatly enhanced the resilience of our optical networks in Dublin and around the country. Around the same time we continued our roll out of 100Mbps connectivity to every secondary school in the Republic of Ireland. This talk aims to describe the technology design choices, the implementation process and some of the interesting issues and pitfalls encountered...

Over the summer BBC R&D tested a few of the technologies we're working on as part of our ip end to end long term research Featuring content from the Rio World Cup and Commonwealth Games in UHD (4k) with IP/software delivery from the camera to the consumer we expect this to take over from traditional broadcasting. We'll present how we did it and some of the results
Mr John Souter (LINX)

Mr Ralf Weber (Nominum)
DNS DDoS attacks continue, fueled by open DNS proxies. Now they're stressing resolvers and authorities worldwide using pseudo random subdomains. In June of 2014 there was a 400% increase in this traffic and popular domains continue to be targeted. Analysis of recent DNS data reveals other interesting details. For instance, Response Rate Limiting in authorities appears to aggravate attacks. ...
Ms Cathy Almond (Internet Systems Consortium)
Over recent months ISPs and other operators of Recursive DNS services have been reporting their experiences with unusual DNS query patterns both to the community and to their DNS software providers. Increasing attention is now being paid to the performance of recursive servers under different circumstances, including the evolution of various techniques to help manage client queries in a...
Jim Reid (RTFM)
For some time there have been concerns that new gTLD strings were already being informally used on the Internet. ICANN commissioned a study in 2013 to assess the extent of the problem. This was used by ICANN to develop a risk mitigation strategy. The key assumption behind that strategy was then examined in a followup study. An explanation of what was done and the findings from these studies...
Mr Wilson Dave (HEAnet)
HEAnet has been trying to encourage IPv6 deployment since... oh, since ever. So have lots of the rest of us. But for something that's taken a decade or two of effort, the numbers still don't look very good. What happened? More importantly, what do we need to change? There's an area of research called Disruption Theory that teaches us how a less well equipped competitor can beat a dominant...
Tom Hill (Bytemark)
Subtitle: What happens when you turn off IPv4 When Bytemark decided to build our own datacentre, we wanted to avoid using IPv4 wherever possible. Almost all of our internal systems are already dual-stacked, and all staff have native IPv6 at home as well as IPv6 via openvpn. The usual issues with IPv6 in a dual-stack environment not withstanding, we found some new issues when we tried to...
