From 2006 to 2010, Tim was a part of a small engineering team that built New Zealand’s 3rd nationwide telecommunications network, laying multiple thousands of kilometers of fibre and lighting up a DWDM transmission and MPLS telco network. They did this with 58 POPs on under $1M of routing equipment, while scaling to take a significant proportion of the internet traffic in the country. Requiring ... More

As one of the original developers of the OpenRightsGroup's blocked.org.uk platform I'd like to take a moment to explain how UK Internet filtering is detected and reported by civil liberties groups.

While innovation in inter-domain routing has remained stagnant for over a decade, Internet Exchange Points (IXPs) are consolidating their role as economically advantageous interconnection points for reducing path latencies and exchanging ever increasing amounts of traffic. As such, IXPs appear as a natural place to foster network innovation and assess the benefits of Software-Defined Networking ... More

Earlier this year, LINX has started a project to implement prefix validation across the different Route Server platforms we are operating. This presentation will provide a very brief overview of what this is all about (why and how) and then focus on the implementation choices made and give an update on progress so far. It will provide an insight into the issues encountered, which will focus hea ... More

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which comes into force on 25th May 2018, broadens both the definition of personal data and the obligations of organisations that process it. With regulators apparently planning to provide detailed guidance as late as December, this talk will look at the steps organisations should be taking now to be ready to implement that guidance when it appears.

Routers and switches have long had the ability to serialise and commit their running configuration, leading to the easy ability to automate the deployment of known successful configurations. Software, including software based routers, does not frequently have this ability. This makes automated deployment a lot of work: a playbook populates a server, but there is no way to turn a well-tuned serv ... More

Talk in a nutshell: - WHY?! * List item * found riskiest assumption * sought to test it as cheaply and quickly as possible * Built MLP * reflection: MLP was wrong MLP * How "Jobs To Be Done" can be used to help you figure out what you can outsource (cheap) & what you need to build (expensive) * eg washing machine in van = very expensive engineering challenge to test the hypo ...

There has been a lot of noise about Segment Routing as the latest and greatest thing in networking, but as always a new technology is accompanied by loads of hype and it can be difficult to see beyond the marketing to understand what could reasonably be deployed in the near term and what the concrete benefits could be. This presentation will provide an overview tutorial to Segment Routing to in ... More

What is the biggest challenge in recruitment of good technical staff? What is being taught in schools and colleges and how is it delivered? Who decides what should be taught? How could things be done better? I don’t pretend to know all the answers, but I am an educator and I know how students learn and can show how technical education and relevant skills are being delivered and where the gaps ar ... More
