Avi Freedman, ServerCentral

Avi Freedman is CTO and VP of Cloud Services with ServerCentral, where he is rolling out a Private Cloud Platform for Enterprise and content provider customers. Prior to joining ServerCentral, Avi was at Akamai for 9.9 years where he founded the network group and played in the vast Akamai geek sandbox, interfacing Akamai Technologies to the real world. Avi founded Philadelphia's original ISP, netaxs, and started teaching Internet routing in the real world in the mid-90s. He was a founding member of the ARIN advisory council and is actively involved in the network community.
Abstract: The tutorial introduces service providers to some more advanced BGP features and techniques to aid with operating their networks within the Internet. After a recap of iBGP, eBGP and common attributes, the tutorial will look at the various scaling techniques available, when to use BGP instead of an IGP, and examine policy options available through the use of local preference, MED and communities. The second half of the tutorial looks at deployment techniques, including BGP network design, the announcing and receiving prefixes, aggregation, routing table growth and stability, finishing off with some configuration advice.
