Managing a network that did stateless filtering at the edge leaving stateful, granular firewalling to the hosts _(100% Linux)_ was all well and good till the business went for SOC2 compliance... Firewalls had to be dropped onto the edge where there was ~60Gbits of transit capability but it had to be done without any disruption to the various IP streams coming into, out of and between the...

This will discuss 5G, and the what, the why, and the when!
Andy Furnell (Zen Internet)
We think the future is ultrafast. Since 1995, Zen Internet has been at the forefront of the UK Internet’s evolutions. And right now, we see no slowdown in increasingly complex, data hungry applications that rely on fast robust connectivity. Whether this is businesses migrating to cloud computing and hosted voice or consumers’ depending on connectivity to underpin smart homes and a...

Some more amusing anecdotes, historical artifacts, and possibly interesting technical tales of woe from the UK Internet of the late 1990s.

IPv6 is starting to become more commonly supplied by major ISPs in the UK and has been well supported for a long time by mobile phones and desktop operating systems. The percentage of data being transported over IPv6 (compared to IPv4) is expected to go up enormously in 2017 within the UK. However many embedded, niche and hobby devices are a long way from supporting IPv6. Because IPv6...

There’s nothing new about Botnets, but one built from IoT devices is – and, they are taking the scale of the DDoS threat to a level not previously anticipated. Understand why this new vector is on the rise and the detail behind the types of attacks it is delivering.

FD.io is a Project at Linux Foundation focusing on a modularised and extensible packet processing software framework for building bespoke network data plane applications. It is a collection of projects centred around VPP - Vector Packet Processing - a high-throughput, low-latency and resource-efficient data plane services platform. This talk introduces FD.io, covers the VPP architecture,...
Mr Marek Isalski (Faelix Limited)
Following on from some of the ideas presented in Brian Nisbet's talk "Your 60 seconds starts now", my talk would be to explain how we put our Customer Relationship Management system right in the middle of our network infrastructure. The primary audience of the presentation is smaller ISPs/NSPs/etc, who might not yet have the ITIL-style business processes in place, or are just thinking about...

Both "Large BGP communities" (*RFC8092*) and "BGP Shutdown Communication" (*draft-ietf-idr-shutdown*) are new standards designed to improve the lives of operators of modern ISP networks. In this talk we explore these and discuss adoption.
Will Hargrave (UKNOF/LONAP)
With this BCP Internet-Draft we hope to draw some attention to good practises which can be applied by IP networks or IXPs to mitigate negative impact caused by maintenance operations on lower layer networks. The idea is to promote the concept of breaking the control-plane in a controlled fashion, before actually breaking the data-plane. This is a follow-on from my lightning talk at...

The Domain Name System Operations Analysis and Research Center (DNS-OARC) is a non-profit, membership, organization that seeks to improve the security, stability, and understanding of the Internet's DNS infrastructure. This presentation will include a brief introduction to DNS-OARC, and an overview of OARC's extensive suite of software tools for DNS data gathering, sharing and analysis,...

Simon has been at AutoTrader for over three years and has witnessed a business change from traditional waterfall to fully agile. I will giveyou a whistle stop tour of what continuous delivery is and, how some of those methods that sysadmins have been using for while can now start to also be used in a networks role.
Mr Diego Neto (NL-ix)
One of the missions of an internet exchange is to promote and facilitate peering between organizations: this operation is generally performed via route-servers. Unfortunately, at the moment, this approach comes with a few severe limitations that are not encouraging organizations to join route-servers: there is no possibility to easily decide who to peer or who to peer not within the connected...
