Next Gen Sky Broadband Core Network
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 choices, migration process and initial experience with the new technology.

Segment Routing: An Architecture build with SDN in mind and addressing the evolving network requirements (Cisco Sponsor Presentation)
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 existing service offering will be described.

Anycast on a shoe string
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 had along the way.
