Tutorial: MPLS OAM

MPLS networks started off to support protocol technologies like ATM, FrameRelay, etc., to be transported over IP core networks in a seamless fashion. This also facilitated in providing various services like VPN, PWE3 etc. In the recent past MPLS protocol evolved as a replacement for traditional TDM transport networks by the way of MPLS-TP. Though the technology is mature at data plane and control plane, the OAM within the protocol could not keep the pace with the rapid developments. This presentation provides detailed OAM techniques to be used within each area of MPLS networks and what tools to be used and some of the benefits which could be realized in managing the service provider networks.

Tutorial: Deploy Packet Transport with MPLS-TP

With the dramatic growth of packet traffic and the drive to reduce cost, transport providers are in a transition period moving from the traditional TDM based network into a packet based network. Combining the benefits of IP/MPLS and TDM, MPLS Transport Profile (TP) becomes the technology of choice as the next generation transport network. However, moving from a TDM based network to a packet transport poses significant challenges to providers. This presentation will outline the transport network transformation and how MPLS-TP fits into the new architecture. Deployment scenarios and lifecycle deployment steps are discussed.

Tutorial: Meet the New IP, Same as the Old IP?

Most folks discussing IPv6 and how it is different than IPv4 tend to take a very network and router-centric view. This is OK for your backbone but ignores many of the complexities as you move up the stack or further away from your core routers and switches. I'll talk about some of the protocol differencs you'll need to consider when designing your network so that you can design a network that will work for the apps and users you need to support.

Building Scalable Data Centers: BGP is the Better IGP

Design choices, such as protocols & topology, for large scale (100k+ services) Web data centers have significant impact on scalability and operations of underlying networks. Such networks often host Hadoop-like compute clusters, which calls for topology providing large amount of bisection bandwidth. Consequently, to satisfy the requirement for intense east-west traffic, operators commonly choose some of Clos/Fat-tree topology variants. Another prominent property of such environments is reliance on fixed form-factor, cheap commodity 1G/10G Ethernet switches to reduce capital expenditures. Both of these properties combined result in a network topology with very high link density and large number of switches – on the order of 10’s of thousands and thousands of elements respectively. Applying traditional data-center designs with large L2 domains, even leveraging features such as vPC/mLAG is not possible due to scalability issues. This situation calls for different design options

100 Terabytes a Day: How CBC Delivers Content to Canadians

How does Canada's Public broadcaster deliver content to millions of users a day as efficiently as possible? Network optimizations can only go so far. This talk will touch upon the technologies, systems, and policies used at CBC to deliver high quality streaming audio, video, and web content as quickly and cheaply as possible to Canadians: - Using CDNs to bring the content as close as possible to end users - The nature of "news" generated network traffic and how to prepare for it. - Why peering with CBC directly (or any news organization) might be a bad idea. - Front End Optimizations (FEO) that are done to ensure minimal traffic/bw usage between end users and the origin. - Caching and how to best take advantage of it. This talk will give attendees a look at how a large news organization manages and deals with unpredictable network traffic at the application level.

A View of Top-Down Internet Governance

Governance of the Internet has proceeded largely unregulated, in part due to the special status of Internet communications in the International Telecommunication Regulations (ITRs). In particular, recent proposals, to be decided December 2012, include making ITU communications standards binding, regulation of critical resources (names and numbers), and the regulation of peering and interconnection agreements and rates. This presentation provides a view into the structure and motivations of proposals for top-down Internet governance. Starting with high-level issues from the UN, the processes that led to the creation of the Internet Governance Forum will be briefly traced. Given this background, the current renegotiation of the ITRs will be discussed, highlighting how arguments "legitimized" in state-based, top-down forums like the IGF are being used to legitimize proposed changes. The conclusion of the talk intends to (1) facilitate discussion of implications, (2) explore how the network operator community can engage with top-down processes (this does not mean become subordinate to them), and (3) identify which community efforts already satisfy original motivations such as stability and economic development.

The ITU and Openness

The International Telecommunications Union (ITU) is renegotiating its treaty with the 193 countries of the world, and it hopes to move from the telecommunications arena into the Internet. However, there’s one major problem with this shift in mandate: The ITU is a closed organization and has been for nearly 150 years. The ITU’s rules and processes may have worked for the old state-run telecom monopolies, but they cannot work in regulating the Internet, where standards have been developed in an open manner since its inception. Thus, in order to gain legitimacy with the Internet community, the ITU will need to (1) open its processes up for review and comment by civil society, academics, the private sector, and the public; (2) make their TIES database freely and publicly accessible for review and comment; and (3) refrain from developing competing standards and protocols in cases where other open groups are already actively developing standards.

LISP-DDT: A New Mapping Database for LISP

LISP, which has been presented to NANOG in the past, is an IP protocol that changes the way that IP addresses are used, separating them into topology-independent "Endpoint IDs", intended for use as "PI" space that is not carried in the routing system and topology-dependent "Routing Locators", which are aggregated and routed in much the same was a "PA" space is today. This presentation introduces the LISP Delegated Database Tree (LISP-DDT), used to define and distribute information that LISP routers need to map between EIDs and RLOCs when encapsulating user data for transport across the Internet. LISP-DDT is currently being implemented and tested on a pilot network; the presentation will cover current work as well as future plans for full operational deployment.

DNSFlow and You: Lightweight Monitoring for DNS in the Modern Network

These days, netflow enables lightweight monitoring of traffic flowing across networks. Carving the interesting data from packet headers, and discarding the "heavy" payload just makes sense. Why not take the easy way out? When you have almost as much insight into what is going on without the rest of the payload, and scaling payload inspection for many protocols is "hard" and resource intensive, why would you not discard the data you aren't interested in? As DNS information has become much more closely tied to network interactions, even a crucial part of them, it is now much more important to have visibility into the DNS activity in your network. This presentation discusses a lightweight (think netflow) method of gaining insight into DNS activity in a network, several interesting uses of such "DNSFlow" data, as well as several plausible uses of DNSFlow data, and a method of sharing DNSFlow data with other operators. The target audience is anyone with DNS traffic traversing their network; both network-monitoring and security-related applications will be discussed.
