Walter Johnston, FCC

Walter Johnston is currently Chief, Electromagnetic Compatibility Division for the FCC where he is responsible for the evaluation of new technologies and services. Prior to the FCC, he served as CTO for several companies focused on data and VoIP services. He has held senior positions in Telcordia and was Vice President at BellAtlantic/NYNEX, now Verizon, where he was responsible for the development of new broadband data services including the company’s first Internet service offering. While at Verizon he also directed the trial of one of the nation’s first high speed regional Internet networks as part of the National Science Foundation’s Internet program and also established one of the nation’s largest experimental broadband networks, a statewide facility connecting research organizations throughout New York State. Mr. Johnston served as program manager for the introduction of optical technology to the Bell System while he was at AT&T. He began his career with Bell Laboratories where he was responsible for design and development of a number of computer systems automating processes within the telephone network. He has a B.S./EE and an M.S./CS both from Polytechnic Institute of New York.
Abstract: The Measuring Broadband America program is an effort by the FCC, in collaboration with industry, to collect data on broadband services in the United States. The FCC first presented initial results on fixed broadband services from this program to NANOG in 2011, shortly after the release of its first report.
The FCC issues an annual report and is acquiring in the process a baseline perspective on consumer broadband evolution in the United States. The release of these reports in a transparent, open manner has also helped to spur competition among service providers. The FCC MBA program is committed to open data and in addition to the report releases all data collected in the program.
As the Internet has evolved, so have the goals of the program. While access speed was the dominant concern of consumers three years ago, the rapid evolution of streaming video service has brought into focus the performance of interconnection services. Another evolving direction of the program is greater collaboration with university researchers.
Over the last several years, the program has begun to focus on mobile broadband data performance using crowdsourcing to collect performance data. Working in collaboration with industry and others, the FCC launched its program in late 2013. Initial results are expected to be released in late 3Q / early 4Q 2014. Due to privacy concerns for mobile data, discussion with the FTC commission, service providers, and outside experts resulted in the development of a privacy policy to protect the consumer. Data released under this program will be consistent with developed policy.
The FCC expects to continue to evolve the program to fully reflect the interests of the public and believes that the collection of broadband data in collaboration with interested stakeholders utilizing open methodologies and the release of such data is important both in ensuring continued competition within the industry and providing policy makers and researchers with an unbiased source of data.

Narseo Vallina-Rodriguez, ICSI

I received my BA+MsC in Telecommunications Engineering from the University of Oviedo in 2007. My M.S. Thesis was completed at the University of Cambridge, Computer Laboratory as a visitor student working on Haggle Project. In 2008, I joined Vodafone R&D, returning to Cambridge to complete my Ph.D. program under the supervision of Jon Crowcroft. During my PhD I completed three fruitful internships at Deutsche Telekom Labs, TU-Berlin, with Pan Hui and at Telefonica Research with Dina Papagiannaki and Yan Grunenberger. My PhD research was awarded with a Qualcomm Innovation Fellowship in 2012. In July 2013, I joined ICSI as a Post-Doc to work with Prof. Vern Paxson, Nick Weaver and Christian Kreibich on Netalyzr project. My research interests are on networks performance, measurements, mobile systems and applications, distributed systems and privacy.
Abstract: Cellular network performance is often viewed as primarily dominated by the radio technology. However, middleboxes such as DNS resolvers and omnipresent performance-enhancing proxies in the IP core of the operators' mobile networks can significantly impair a user's access despite being designed for the contrary. In addition, common roaming and network sharing agreements between mobile operators to extend their network coverage at minimum deployment cost — as well as innovative business models such as Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNOs) — can increase the complexity of cellular networks while potentially degrading the performance standards expected by mobile users and complicating their trust decisions.

Matt Peterson, Cumulus Networks

Matt Peterson works within the office of the CTO at Cumulus Networks. At Cumulus, he built the initial customer experience team, and is responsible for technical evangelism and customer product direction. Matt has held enable access on 2 to 5 digit ASN organizations - as well as co-founding the first non-profit IX within San Francisco, known as SFMIX. His work has been presented at numerous industry events, including APRICOT, BSDcon, Defcon, & CCC Camp. At NANOG62, Matt will be presenting on an extreme temporary network deployment for the annual Burning Man festival.
Abstract: Automation, orchestration, and promise theory have been crucial tools to enable the cloud computing revolution. Users now expect a dynamic interface to provision
infrastructure in a consistent fashion. But why has networking continued to be a maintenance silo? NETCONF, YANG, and others (NANOG 28, 49, 60) were supposed to fix this - but adoption has remained niche. This talk will provide a tale of real-world infrastructure automation.

This is the story of building the temporary event IP network for Burning Man. While the 70,000 participant rural desert gathering is well known, much of the behind-the-scenes mastery is not. Mr. Peterson re-united with the all-volunteer “Playa Tech” team in the mid 2000s, bringing a fresh perspective towards operations and procedures. This tight knit group spawns veteran emacs RFC authors to first year dehydrated hipsters.

Today the network uses extensive automation to manage all routers, switches, wireless radios, along with support systems - such as: DNS, latency monitoring, host availability, trending graphs, etc. Matt will share the journey that the team has taken over the past several years, implementing configuration management and defining best practices. Now that several FOSS tools exist in the space, now is the time for organizations of all sizes to consider a serious strategy around network automation (re-dubbed as NetDevOps more recently).

Abstract: Abuse of the IPv6 Internet is still largely unexplored and uncertain. Quantifying and characterizing abusive traffic over IPv6 will help to better understand current and future threats associated with its continued deployment. In this work we address IPv6-based abuse of the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) by collecting and analyzing a year’s worth of data from a large enterprise. We elicit abusive activity by instituting a type of SMTP honeypot for the organization’s email domain concurrent with its production deployment. We implement novel techniques for fingerprinting operating systems (OSes) and applications and associating IPv4 and IPv6 addresses from dual-stack clients. We study the presence of IPv6 activity at our honeypot and find some activity distributed among various operating systems and network origins.

Darrell DeRosia, Comcast

Darrell DeRosia is a Senior Wi-Fi Engineer at NextGen in Philadelphia. Darrell has extensive experience deploying Wi-Fi in large venues, hotel and other multi dwelling units for the past 10 years. Over that time, Darrell has developed a profound understanding of client behavior that enables prevention of bottlenecks and accommodation of non-standard devices through inclusion, testing and validation as part of design process. His research interest relies heavily on creating a seamless user experience no matter what the obstacles are in the path.
Abstract: Building a carrier-grade Wi-Fi network requires support for multiple locations, multiple authentication zones, multiple back-haul connections, and multiple equipment vendors for each component. The user expectations are constantly evolving for the network and the way people are using the network is changing daily. Creating a seamless experience when the most common clients were never designed or developed to operate in these environments is challenging. The outdoor Wi-Fi initiative relies on a varied array of interconnected devices to provide the desired public access, with the expected levels of security and accountability, all while preserving the private user’s subscribed level of service. Operators pursuing outdoor Wi-Fi are interested in deploying architecture and interfaces that allow for network scalability (e.g., millions of APs and 10s of millions of client devices), multi-vendor interoperability, and a consistent user experience. This case study will focus on the data collected from the service provider footprint on outdoor and public area hotspot programs and lessons learned from operational experience.

Abstract: In a server farm serving mainstream applications, a load balancer is employed to direct packets of an application session to a server that is available and in healthy state for the purpose of scalability and manageability. The load balancer is always in the path of all packets from the client to the server. The load balancer is also in the path of all packets from the server back to the client, except in the case of using DSR (direct server return) technique. In a network topology where a load balancer is not directly connected to servers (as shown in next slide), a server farm throughput is unnecessarily limited by the deployed load balancer’s I/O capacity. Alternative is to add more LB or scale up load balancer. Both alternatives are expensive. With DSR, the returned packets from a server does not need to go through load balancer, however, every incoming packet from a client still need to go through the load balancer. The mechanism described here will enable better scalability of server farm and reduce cost of increasing throughput from the server farm.

Measuring In-Flight Packet Header Modification on the Internet

Presenters: Speakers:

Ryan Craven, Naval Postgraduate School

Ryan Craven recently graduated from the Naval Postgraduate School with a Ph.D. in Computer Science. While at NPS, he worked with Professor Robert Beverly on the end-to-end detection of in-flight packet header modifications. Ryan currently works for the Space and Naval Warfare (SPAWAR) Systems Center in Charleston, SC, one of the U.S. Navy's research and engineering centers.
Abstract: Understanding, measuring, and debugging IP networks is challenging, particularly across the Internet. Contributing significantly to that challenge are transparent middleboxes--residing both within and outside an operator's network--that can make troubleshooting difficult. Such in-path middleboxes are typically transparent to end hosts, but can modify packet headers in ways that impact end-to-end performance or cause connectivity issues. For example, legacy equipment and misconfiguration can wreak havoc on new (or not so new) TCP/IP functionality, e.g., ECN, SACK, Multipath, tcpcrypt, etc., resulting in traffic being misconstrued, degraded, or blocked along a path. We develop TCP HICCUPS to expose packet header manipulation to both endpoints of a TCP connection using existing TCP/IP semantics. In other words, HICCUPS seeks to automate the question: "Did my packet arrive at its destination with the same headers as sent?" In the same way that ping is used today to test reachability, the HICCUPS design enables a new general path diagnostic capability. We use HICCUPS to measure thousands of Internet paths between HICCUPS-enabled hosts and highlight the breadth and scope of hard-to-detect middlebox behaviors. HICCUPS is freely available as both a Linux kernel patch and a user-space client, which we invite operators to evaluate and use to test their own networks.

Abstract: We seek to present on behalf of the internet service providers and connectivity providers (ISPCP) constituency in ICANN. The ISPCP is conducting outreach to engage ISPs and constituency providers who are impacted by issues currently being debated and decided within ICANN's multistakeholder community. The results of these discussions will have major consequences, yet the level of direct engagement by many in our community remains low. The ISPCP presentation will begin with an introduction to ICANN, its key role and structure, and how the ISPCP fits within ICANN. We will then discuss two current topics of major consequence to ISPs and connectivity providers, resulting from the massive introduction of new generic top level domains (gTLDs): name collisions and universal acceptance of new top level domains (TLDs). ISPCP members are on the frontlines as these developments unfold, as the first point of contact for any operational problems that customers may encounter. We should be prepared to understand the issues, minimize any problems, and engage on solutions.

Why Smart People Do Stupid Things: Submarine Cables, Network Oversupply, and the Inexorable Decline of IP Transit Prices

Tim Stronge, TeleGeography

Tim Stronge is Vice President of Research at TeleGeography. His areas of expertise include international voice traffic, terrestrial and submarine cable systems, and international bandwidth markets. Since joining TeleGeography in 1996, Tim has served as a principal analyst in most areas of research, including network infrastructure, bandwidth demand modeling, cross-border traffic flows, and telecom services pricing. He holds a Master´s degree in International Economics from Johns Hopkins University and a B.A. from the College of William and Mary.
Abstract: Submarine cable operators marched at the front of the telecom bust parade in 2000-2001. Oversupply and quick price drops led to billions of dollars of write-offs by undersea cable investors. Arguably, their loss was the Internet's gain. The capacity oversupply that led to bandwidth price declines also enabled much cheaper IP transit prices and lower peering costs.

NANOG attendees--especially those that buy IP transit--may be happy to learn that submarine cable developers are at it again. Several new networks are in the works, and not all of them make a great deal of economic sense. On the surface, it appears that many of the same stupid mistakes seem to be happening again for many of the same dumb reasons.

This presentation will explore the connection between undersea fiber-optic development and IP transit prices. The presentation will share results from primary research findings addressing the following questions:

* Where is new infrastructure investment occurring? Many changes are afoot behind the scenes.
* Why is there new cable investment occurring? Is it truly a case of people doing stupid things?
* Will this new investment push down prices?
* Where are prices falling the fastest? Where are prices barely falling at all?
* Will we ever reach a global bandwidth "singularity" in which capacity will be priced the same no matter the location?

Wesley George, Time Warner Cable

Wesley George has been working in IP networking for approximately 15 years, across operations, engineering and capacity planning, architecture, and design in large wired and wireless service provider networks. He has been an active participant in the IETF for 7 years, with a focus on operational issues, routing, and IPv6, including serving as former co-chair of the IPv6 Renumbering (6renum) working group and current co-chair of the sunset4 working group. He currently works on Core Routing Architecture and Technology Development at Time Warner Cable, which is among the largest providers of video, high-speed data and voice services in the United States.
Abstract: In March 2013, FCC CSRIC III WG 6 released a report on Secure BGP Deployment, which included recommendations to begin cautious, staged deployment of RPKI Route Origin Validation. As a result of this recommendation and Time Warner Cable’s participation in this group, your humble presenter began a serious investigation into the logistics of deploying RPKI Origin Validation into Time Warner Cable’s network. That investigation resulted in a lot of useful learning about implementation details for someone who was familiar with RPKI in the IETF (theoretical/protocol design) context, but not for deployment. However, at this point TWC has made the decision not to proceed with RPKI deployment beyond the lab proof of concept phase. This presentation attempts to explain why by discussing some of the challenges encountered that are serving as a barrier to deployment. The discussion will cover three main areas: Signing prefixes, validating incoming routes, and tooling/other operational considerations. There will also be some discussion about a method we devised to improve the redundancy of the CA/TA hosting system we were evaluating.

Lenny Giuliano, Juniper Networks

Lenny Giuliano is the MBONED Working Group Co-chair and a Distinguished Engineer at Juniper Networks. He has written articles for Forbes and Network World and coauthored Interdomain Multicast Routing: Practical Juniper Networks and Cisco Systems Solutions (Addison-Wesley 2002). He has coauthored or contributed to more than a dozen RFCs and Internet Drafts. Prior to joining Juniper, Lenny worked in Sprint's Internet Operations.
Abstract: In the late 90's, there was much excitement and exuberance over the potential of Internet Multicast. Today, interest in Internet Multicast is perhaps at an all-time low despite the fact that it may be more useful than ever. In this presentation, we will examine a brief history of Internet Multicast and what went wrong in the past. We will look at new tools like Automatic Multicast Tunneling (AMT) that are now available to address the fundamental issues that made deployment so challenging in the past. We will also discuss why Internet Multicast is better positioned than ever to meet its potential to deliver disruptive content - and how you may already be using it and not know it.
