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 topic covers the basics of what BFD is and what problems it can solve now as it relates to rapid failure detection. It will also look at where is BFD in terms of actual deployment usage. Input from several operators will be included to give show if BFD is actually helpful or more of a headache when it comes to achieving rapid convergence. The final part of the presentation will highlight future improvements suggested for BFD that can fill in some gaps.
