Panel: Services, Complexity, and the Internet: What Direction?

Moderated by Dave Meyer, Sprint and the University of Oregon

Increasing demands and new service requirements have led to increasing complexity in Internet backbones. This panel explores emerging concerns about complexity and its effects in production backbones. Topics include the complexity tradeoffs inherent in various backbone engineering and operations activities, such as:

  • Traffic engineering techniques
  • VPN technologies
  • QoS/CoS provisioning
  • High availability (HA)
  • Layering philosophies
  • Layered control planes
  • IP multicast
