Mr Tim Rossiter (Sky Network Services)
The Sky Broadband network deployed the new Cisco NCS6000 8 Tbit core router across its core network in 2014 to support rapidly growing network traffic and subscriber numbers (now peaking at 2500 Gbit/s to over 5 million subscribers). At the same time it moved to 100Gbit links within the core and is starting to use 100Gbit for external interconnects. This paper describes the architectural...

BT is building a number of subsea systems in the north of Scotland. This lightning talk will give an over view of the work and investments and one or two war stories.
16. Segment Routing: An Architecture build with SDN in mind and addressing the evolving network requirements (Cisco Sponsor Presentation)
Mr Brian Meaney (Cisco)
The aim of this session is to highlight the role of Segment Routing in today’s networking environment. This technology, along with the adoption of SDN techniques, provides enhanced solutions all the way from the Data Centre, through the WAN and out into the access. One such solution which will be briefly described is "Egress Peer Engineering" and an example of its applicability with an...

Mr Steve Santorelli (Team Cymru)
I'd like to cover the old classics as well as a bunch of new community offerings that Team Cymru makes available for Network Security Admins to save you time, give you insight and generally help you to clean up your network. We won't be covering anything we offer commercially, at all. NOTE: This presentation will not be webcast or recorded.
Mr Job Snijders (NTT)
IRR is bad. RPKI is bad. What is low hanging fruit to secure our routing system? NLNOG's golden prefixes system might be a way forward.
Mr Stuart Bates (Imtech/Axians)
Everyone has heard how SDN/NFV will solve poverty, create world peace and save the whales but are there any actual truths in what you've been told and in what you believe about SDN/NFV solutions? In this presentation, we will share some of the common perceptions and misconceptions from the UK's SP community when discussing SDN/NFV and give you our 'truths' without a single mention of any product.

Ms Bijal Sanghani (Euro-IX)
An update on the IX-F and projects Euro-IX has been working on: IXP Bogon List with Team Cymru, IXP Member API, IXP BCOPs, New release of IXP definition and successful models for IXPs. Also further data (traffic and maps) on APIX, Af-IX, LAC-IX and NA-IX.
Mr Keith Mitchell (UKNOF)
In its first full year of operation, the Open-IX Association has defined 2 key new open standards for Internet Exchange and Data Centre operators to help encourage a more "European like" interconnect ecosystem in North America, leading to the OIX certification of more than 20 locations. The certification process has recently been opened to interested parties worldwide. This talk will report...
Mr Kevin Williams (National Cyber Crime Unit, NCA)
Dr Stephen Morris (Internet Systems Consortium)
An overview of Kea, a new open-source DHCP server, was given at UKNOF-28 in April 2014. This lightning talk reports on progress since then and outlines future plans.
Tom Coffeen (Infoblox)
The Internet is officially down to the dregs of IPv4. The adoption of IPv6 is lurching forward. But persistent operational challenges remain as a result of both gaps in the standards as well as lack of operational practice to leverage. This presentation will explore some of those challenges and offer some views on what the path forward may look like.

Mr Bipin Mistry (Corero)
DDoS has become a growing concern for organizations across the globe, especially IP network operators. As the DDoS threat continues to evolve providers need to take action in protecting their network infrastructure against these damaging attacks. This session will discuss: - Trends in the DDoS threat landscape– what is happening and where things are going - What does this mean for...
Mr Job Snijders (NTT)
A new partial outage detector dubbed “RING SQA” is available to all NLNOG RING participants. The purpose of the tool is to detect outages as fast as possible that only affect a subset of all internet destinations.
Dr Craig Gallen (OpenNMS)
OpenNMS, the open source network and service management platform has been around for over 10 years and is now used widely by large and small enterprises, service providers, ISP's and equipment vendors. Recently a lot of investment has gone into re-architecting the platform to make it highly scalable and distributed. In this presentation we will highlight the latest developments in OpenNMS and...
Mr Valerio Plessi (ThousandEyes)
Sometimes networks break. In this session, I’ll present data visualizations of 2014’s major network outages and provide a perspective on how to collect a wide range of performance data used in the analysis. The events will include prominent DNS hijacks, DDoS attacks, cable cuts and routing errors.
Mr Nat Morris (UKNOF/Esgob)
Over 6 months I built out a distributed DNS service around the world consisting of 14 nodes, whilst at the same time trying to keep it under the radar of the wife - costing less than $1000/yr. I'll talk about how I built it, what tools I used (RethinkDB, Beanstalkd, CollectD, Python etc), the problems I faced, details I learnt about how other "budget" anycast services are built and the fun I...
Mr Roy Arends (Nominet UK)
Roy Arends will present a live demonstration of BumbleBee, Nominet's DNS traffic analysis system. Topics will include how this system has been used for: - finding bugs in BIND - finding bugs in 3rd party client resolvers - discovering and tracking botnets
