Description

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 introduce the concepts and the building blocks. It will highlight the limitations as well as the benefits of this forwarding paradigm and will describe some of the key use cases. The purpose is not to evangelise the technology, but to give a fair view of the pros and cons so that the audience can see beyond the marketing hype and determine the nuggets of value in this piece of IETF work. The presenter, Adrian Farrel, is a Distinguished Engineer with Juniper Networks, and an independent consultant specialising in the standardisation of routing protocols at Old Dog Consulting. He has been active in the IETF for 20 years and has held a number of management positions in that organisation. He is currently actively involved in the standardisation of Segment Routing as well as Service Function Chaining, traffic Engineering technologies, and the Path Computation Element.

Summary

This presentation will provide an overview tutorial to Segment Routing to introduce the concepts and the building blocks. It will highlight the limitations as well as the benefits of this forwarding paradigm and will describe some of the key use cases.
