RBridges and the IETF TRILL Protocol
Meeting: NANOG48
Date / Time: 2010-02-22 11:30am - 12:00pm
Room: Salon H
Presenters: Speakers:

Donald Eastlake, Stellar Switches

Donald Eastlake is Chief Technology Officer for Stellar Switches, Inc., and before that was a Distinguished Member of Technical Staff at Motorola. He is co-chair of the IETF TRILL Working Group. Donald is an author of about 50 IETF RFCs, including the only RFC with "sex" in its title, editor of the TRILL base protocol specification, and an author of a number of other TRILL related Internet Drafts..
Abstract: RBridges are devices that implement the IETF TRILL protocol. They provide optimal pair-wise forwarding without configuration, safe forwarding even during periods of temporary loops, and support for multipathing of both unicast and multicast traffic. They achieve these goals using IS-IS routing and encapsulation of traffic with a header that includes a hop count. RBridges are compatible with previous IEEE 802.1 customer bridges as well as IPv4 and IPv6 routers and end nodes. They support VLANs and optimization of the distribution of multi-destination frames based on VLAN and IP derived multicast groups. They are as invisible to current IP routers as bridges are and, like routers, they terminate the bridge spanning tree.

Room: Salon H
Presenters: Speakers:

Jeroen Massar, SixXS

Jeroen is working at the IBM Zurich Research Laboratory on the AURORA project, a tool which allows a view into very large networks, various IPv6 deployment and consulting subjects and other networking related problem sets. Networking and high scalability are the main topics of his research.<BR> <BR> He is one partner of the duo operating the widely used SixXS project, a sparetime project that provides free IPv6 connectivity to thousands of users globally. In this project he developed and deployed the heartbeat, TIC and AYIYA protocols which are supported by the worldwide SixXS PoPs and the AICCU tool. AICCU enables IPv6 connectivity to users without hassle, it being in most important Open Source Operating System distributions and available for a myriad of platforms. To ensure that SixXS users can actually properly use IPv6 he also created the Ghost Route Hunter (GRH) project that monitors IPv6 BGP and over the years helped in debugging IPv6 routing issues.
Abstract: SixXS (http://www.sixxs.net) is a project run by two enterprising Dutchman providing IPv6 connectivity through various ISP-provided PoPs to users around the world. The project came up with a couple of unique methods of getting people to get connected to IPv6 (AICCU which provides heartbeat and AYIYA tunnels) and also to make sure that the connectivity actually works (GRH, Ghost Router Hunter). This will be an overview of what we accomplished the last 8 years and what is yet to come.

Luca Martini, Cisco.
Abstract: It was 10 years ago that Nasser El-Aawar, and I started the pseudowire design, in a coffee shop in Colorado. Today, Pseudowires based on the original draft-martini are one of the prevalent clients of MPLS networks to offer a wide variety of services. Recently there has been a new trend toward Pseudowires without a control plane. Everything static! This trend is fueled by an emerging transport technology with looks very promising to replace the old SONET infrastructure. It is MPLS Transport Profile, or MPLS-TP. I will give an introduction, and overview of MPLS-TP as well as an update on the most recent developments.

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: This presentation covers proposed method to combine BGP and MPLS-TE to avoid congesting peering or transit links. The idea is to include MPLS-TE bandwidth reservation in the BGP best-path decision process in order to select alternate paths which have sufficient capacity. This behavior is currently executed today by manual policy modification by an operator. An operator typically has to move traffic around carefully while waiting further capacity upgrades. This ideally could work in two different scenarios. One example would be where you have multiple links to a peer and you wish to move traffic to another peering location with that particular peer. Another scenario allows you to avoid routing to a particular peer and route to them via a separate peer/AS-Path. This would be useful when you wish to keep traffic "local" (not have to haul it) and are willing to send it to another peer/transit provider.

Presenters: Speakers:

Robert Raszuk, Cisco Systems

Robert Raszuk graduated with Master’s degree from Warsaw University of Technology, Faculty of Electronics in 1995. During last years of his university he established “Internet Access” company which focused on providing services of interconnecting enterprises to Internet via local ISPs in Poland.<BR> <BR> Shortly after graduation he started to work for Network Engineering at Nations Bank where his duties and responsibilities included running national routing backbone as well as designing migration of most campuses to ethernet catalyst switches from token ring and FDDI technologies.<BR> <BR> Since 1997 he has been working for routing equipment vendors initially in Customer Support team then from 1999 in the Routing Protocol Development Engineering teams.<BR> <BR> He is author & co-author of over 40 patents, number of IETF drafts and RFCs. His focus has been during last years concentrated on large scale routing (mainly BGP), mpls and it’s applications. He has over 16 years of practical experience in the computer networking industry. His priority has always been to help internet service providers to build and effectively operate IP networks.<BR> <BR> Currently he is Principal Engineer in IOS Routing Protocols Development group in Cisco Systems Engineering.
Abstract: The goal of the talk is to discuss applicability of add-paths scheme. It brings the original ISP design and demonstrates how with the current
set of available BGP tools achieve the same level of fast connectivity restoration or load balancing as one may claim to be possible only with add-paths.



An alternative to add-paths - diverse BGP paths distribution is presented. The analogy to MPLS networks is made with demonstration of it's original flat design scalability challenges and proposed industry solution.



Conclusion shows possible network design with main goals of simplicity, ease of deployment, ability to meet fast connectivity restoration goals and true multi service nature to carry any kind of application over IP.

Abstract: Network Tools Track

Moderator: Mohit Lad, ThousandEyes



This track focuses on introducing non-commercial tools of value to the NANOG community with a focus on hands on presentations. The focus of this NANOG's tools track will be on Routing Tools. Each presenter will present the features and capabilities of the tool using case studies, which will be followed by a brief QA session. This will be the perfect opportunity for the audience to make a case for new features and enhancements.



1. REX: Resource Explainer

Rene Wilhelm, RIPE



REX, our Resource EXplainer, is a prototype tool developed at RIPE NCC to provide one-stop-shopping for almost all the information you ever wanted to know about Internet number resources. Using the long term view from data sets like RIS (10 years of BGP table dumps), RIPE database, Maxmind's geolocation information, various SMTP blacklists and others, REX provides an all-inclusive, detailed report about the resources you're interested in; both current and historic states. After introducing the concepts of REX, the presentation will illustrate the power of REX with a demo of example case studies.



2. BGPBotz
Manish Karir, Merit Network Inc,

BGPBotz is a BGP looking-glass interface over Instant Messaging. BGPBotz is similar to route-servers that run on telnet, but has been adapted for the AIM and Jabber IM protocols. In this presentation we would like to both describe its capabilities as well as provide a summary of what popular uses of this tool have been over the past 6 months of operation. We would also like to renew our plea to the overall community for BGP peering session that can be added to this service.


3. Cheap Alternatives for Market Intelligence

Mohit Lad, ThousandEyes Inc.



Without the budget for a commercial tool for market intelligence, one has to look for alternatives. This talk will show how one can make use of existing tools such as Cyclops along with some basic analysis using public data to carry out peering and connectivity analysis. Using specific case studies, the talk will focus on identifying what can be done and point out where the gaps are in the process.

Suzanne Woolf, ISC.
Abstract: In 2009 ICANN, VeriSign and the US Department of Commerce National Telecommunications and Information Administration (US DoC NTIA) began work on a collaborative project to deploy DNSSEC in the root zone of the DNS.



An overview of the project was presented as a lightning talk at NANOG 47, and details of the planned deployment approach were also discussed at the ISP Security BOF at that meeting.



Signing of the root zone started in December 2009, and the operational key management procedures continue to be exercised.



The deployment of DNSSEC in the root zone will trigger large responses from root servers, and it is not understood precisely what impact that will have on operators. Much effort has been put into instrumentation of the root servers to allow analysis of the reaction of the system as a whole to the staged deployment of DNSSEC, but given the widely-dispersed nature of the DNS another critical aspect of this deployment is to engage operators both so that they are aware of the work that is going on, and so that the deployment team can hear from operators how the changes are affecting them.



In January 2009 DNSSEC resource records will appear in the root zone as served by just the L root server. Data from root servers will be collected around the transition point and analysis will begin. NANOG 48 will be the first venue where the impact of the changes can be discussed.



This panel will provide a brief overview of the project and the deployment strategy, and will outline operational details of progress to date.
