Humans do two things very well; we play games and we tell stories. Indeed, DR/BCP exercises combine both as we roleplay our way through a scenario.
Similarly, tabletop Roleplaying games (RPGs). such as Dungeons & Dragons, are all about presenting a scenario to a group of players and seeing how they react. Millions of people play these games every year and this has produced extensive critical...
Community Fibre are a growing FTTH provider in London. We have 150kms of
fibre in the ground chiefly via PIA, we have passed over 75,000 homes
and plan to pass 500,000 homes by the end of 2021.
Provisioning of IPv4 public addresses was not scaling well as the
network grew and additionally our original distributed DHCP deployment
didn't support IPv6 prefix delegation, preventing us from...
This presentation will provide an insight into the challenges and considerations of ever growing DDoS threat landscape. With the help of data points from a recent DDoS incident, I will do a deep-dive analysis into the attack techniques and discuss mitigations strategies, which organisations can leverage against these attacks.
Thomas will describe in detail the structures inside optical transceivers. A Transmitter / Receiver Optical Sub Assembly (TOSA / ROSA) is no longer just a diode in a housing handling the light path to and fro to the fiber.
The performance increases from 10G to 100G onwards to 400G - are not only giant steps in bandwidth they are matching leaps in manufacturing.
How did the optical industry...
This presentation will cover some of the work that we did on the Janet network to deploy single-carrier 400G wavelengths, and why we did it.
I'll start off with a very brief description of Janet, explain why we wanted to deploy 400G transmission, then describe where we've deployed it (and why we deployed it there first), talk about the challenges of deploying it, and where we're looking to go...

DNS resolution is far from being resolved. The latest developments in standards bring not only significant security improvements but also additional configuration and management requirements. This presentation will sum up the latest related challenges and introduce benefits that all network operators can get out of it.
- DNSSEC - challenges and benefits:
- Examples of incidents during...
A UK ISP perspective on the current status of DNS over HTTPS across the end to end ecosystem, covering an overview of IETF discussions, browsers, mobile applications, customer premise equipment, operator core networks, customer experience and regulatory aspects. Combined with a beyond DoH view on wider IETF and IRTF activities that may be of interest to ISPs/network operators, such as the...
This panel will focus on the operational and UK-specific aspects of DoH, including:
- what will DoH deployment break ?
- is centralisation of DNS services good engineering practice ?
- what happens if ISPs try to work around/block this ?
- GDPR considerations
- UK-specific content filtering considerations
- what features would ISPs like to see from browser/cloud DoH vendors to ensure the best...
This is a 10-minute talk on time management for technical people.
Slides based, but with very few bullet points - see attached.
Covers using tech tools to manage your time as well as paper-based
ones. Warning: contains at least one cute cat picture.
Talk was presented in its first form at iNOG in Dublin; Brian
Nisbet can confirm same and whether talk would be of interest
to UKNOF members.
Most route server instances at internet exchanges (IXPs) perform prefix filtering based on route/route6 objects published by internet routing registries. The data quality of these IRRDB objects is often poor, with problems relating to missing, stale and incorrectly duplicated information. Resource holders often have difficulty correcting this information due to the object sets being decoupled...
With the introduction of software-defined networks (SDNs) and network function virtualization (NFV) come opportunities for efficient network threat detection and protection. SDN’s global view and NFV service distribution provide a means of monitoring and defence across the entire network. However, with distributed attacks involving high traffic volumes, network monitoring is a challenging...
Quick overview of the group, the reasoning behind it, the first meeting the progress and challenges so far. Shouldn't take more than 5 minutes, lightning talk style. I expect we'll reuse some of the content from the meeting Denesh made it to in Belfast.
We've had challenges building momentum so we hope to use this as an opportunity to reboot NetNI and start the community growing again,...
