Richard Steenbergen, nLayer Communications

Richard Steenbergen is the co-founder of nLayer Communications, a respectably sized and profitable North American based IP backbone, where he currently serves as the Chief Technical Officer. Richard brings years of experience in practical techniques for network operators, and is a frequent contributor in many community forums. Previously, Richard served as a Senior Network Engineer at several large NSPs, and was the Senior Software Engineer responsible for developing optimized routing technologies at netVmg, Inc.<BR> <BR> Richard is also an active developer for tools and software used by the network operator community. Some notable projects include PeeringDB, a portal used by many networks to help coordinate their peering activities, and IRRPT, a software package used by ISPs to maintain IRR-based prefix filters.
Abstract: A completely practical step by step guide to configuring IPv6 in a production network without breaking anything, for people who hate IPv6 and don't have it deployed currently. The goal would be that everyone who leaves the room should be able to successfully deploy an IPv6 network on top of an existing v4 network on any common Juniper/Cisco hardware, without needing to be IPv6 experts or lovers of the protocol. I also want to talk about practical techniques for addressing management so you can successfully deploy IPv6 without having successfully rewritten all of your internal management tools to fully support it, and other tricks to minimize the pain.

Abstract: The network capacity purchasing RFP can be a powerful tool that insures all options are on the table during pricing negotiations. It also allows the purchaser to remain firmly in control of the process. We aren't buying used cars, we're subscribing to radically changing costs that need to be managed closely. In this talk we will take a mid level walk through a tested RFP and discuss different aspects of an effective request for pricing or proposal "RFP". We will discuss how defining needs over multiple years can be strategically related to discounts and pricing, how to ask providers to define their own service delivery needs so you can recoup costs and standard terms and conditions to minimize lawyer time and expense. We'll conclude with a walk through of an actual RFP that will be provided as a template for later use.

Rapid Convergence in IP Networks
Meeting: NANOG46
Date / Time: 2009-06-15 12:30pm - 1:00pm
Room: Regency Ballroom, 2nd FL Mezz
Presenters: Speakers:

Tom Scholl, AT&T Labs

Within the Global IP/MPLS backbone design & development team, his role is to design routing architectures for the core network and work on network integration of the legacy SBC Internet Services network to the AT&T common backbone. Tom has spent his last several years at SBC and Ameritech working in both operations and network engineering roles. He has presented several times at NANOG and always makes time available to help peers and distribute clue where needed.
Abstract: This presentation covers the topic of rapid convergence within IP networks. IP networks are frequently stated to not be capable of providing rapid convergence similar to that of SONET transport networks. However, with the right knob turns and a properly designed network, you can reach that 50ms or at least sub-second convergence target. The presentation will outline what applications require such performance, what protocols can deliver the results and how well it actually works in production. Additional lessons learned will be outlined showing operators that its not as simple as flipping on a switch. A list of commands and knobs are given at the end of the presentation to get operators a starting point to improve performance within their own networks.

Abstract: While various forms of application-layer peering overlays have long existed on the Internet to support applications like email and newsgroups, Voice over IP (VoIP) peering brings with it a new set of elements, policies, and challenges. This tutorial begins with the fundamentals, exploring why peering is even necessary for a largely client-driven application like VoIP. It then surveys the functional elements necessary to peer between telephony-replacing deployments, using the ongoing IETF work on VoIP peering as a touchstone. All of this is considered with a mind to the ongoing evolution of traditional voice services, including mobile telephony, and the rise of other client-driven Internet applications including instant messaging and peer-to-peer file sharing.

Abstract: Software bugs in routers lead to network outages, security vulnerabilities, and other unexpected behavior. Rather than simply crashing the router, bugs can violate protocol semantics, rendering traditional failure detection and recovery techniques ineffective. Handling router bugs is an increasingly important problem as new applications demand higher availability, and networks become better at dealing with traditional failures. Further demonstrating the importance is a string of recent high profile outages, including a very recent incident where a single prefix announcement to a single provider caused a huge increase in the global update rate and instability due to two bugs in routers from two different vendors. In this paper, we tailor software and data diversity (SDD) to the unique properties of routing protocols, to avoid buggy behavior at run time. Our bug-tolerant router executes multiple diverse instances of routing software, and uses voting to determine the output to publish to the forwarding table, or to advertise to neighbors. We design and implement a router hypervisor that makes this parallelism transparent to other routers, handles fault detection and booting of new router instances, and performs voting in the presence of routing-protocol dynamics, without need to modify software of the diverse instances. Experiments with BGP message traces and the XORP and Quagga open-source software running on our Linux-based router hypervisor demonstrate that our solution scales to large networks and efficiently masks buggy behavior.

Athanasios Douitsis, National Technical University of Athens

Athanasios Douitsis graduated from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of the National Technical University of Athens in 2000 and is currently a Ph.D. candidate at the Network Management and Optimal Design Laboratory at NTUA. He has been working for the NTUA Network Operations Center since 2000, involved in the development and administration of the NTUA campus network, the Greek Research Network (GRNET), the Greek School Network and the Greek Student Network. He has experience in Network Management, Monitoring and Measurements, Multicast, IPv6, VPNs, WDM/SDH and System Administration.
Abstract: In our presentation, we would like to share the experience gained by carrying out the early phases of IPv6 testing and limited deployment in the Greek Student Network (Diodos). Diodos is a state sponsored ADSL access network that is operated by the Greek Research Network and provides network access to academic users across the country. With 50 institutions involved and more than 20000 academic users connected, assigning IPv6 prefixes to each user according to the respective institution presents some interesting addressing and routing problems, which we describe in detail and propose our solution. Furthermore, we describe the use of PPPv6, DHCPv6 prefix delegation or other possible options to enumerate the LAN behind each user CPE and we elaborate on RADIUS AV pairs, accounting problems, DNS options, ACLs, implementation availability, critical bugs and various miscellaneous details for Cisco based equipment. Lastly, we describe the state of our testing deployment and lay out the problems that are critical and must be addressed in the future.

Abstract: Address family translation is being discussed as a viable strategy to deal with IPv4 address exhaustion and IPv6 transition. In the former sense, it can be used to allocate private addresses to customers of a service provider as the NAT is under the provider's control. In the V6 transition case it is seen as a method for either allocating V6 addresses to subscribers when the provider network isn't fully V6 enabled or when a provider's network is V6 enabled and a subscriber is not V6 ready. No matter how one view's NATs there is renewed interest in deploying much larger NATs that perform multiple functions. There are a couple of critical items in this round of deployment: they may be deployed under the provider's control and there may be conjoined encapsulation technology. <BR> <BR> This panel will discuss why SP based NATs are interesting again and go over many deployments, advantages of the technology, costs, operational considerations and anticipated longevity in the network. Given there is much experience with NAT, the panelists will openly discuss the pros and cons and why they need to be taken very seriously as a deployment strategy.
