Welcome and Agenda by Pascal Gloor, SwiNOG Organisation
Quick presentation of the new federation by Pascal Gloor, SwiNOG Federation
A new federation have been created in september 2011 to represent SME ISPs. I will shortly introduce the goals and activities.
Virtualisation on Linux and storage high-availability by Mario Iseli and Christian Schläppi, adfinis GmbH
Many companies and service providers use some sort of virtualisation. Some of them have a lot of money to spend and buy expensive SAN hardware. For the others, virtualisation might be quite a challenge - they need high-availability, the flexibility of networked storage and nice features like snapshots. We will show you, how you can reach those targets without spending hundred-thousands of dollars. We will use common server hardware, nice tools like DRBD to replicate storage, some concepts about logical volumes and guest images, some theory about filesystems and a little piece of iSCSI and Pacemaker magic to keep everything high-available and flexible! We will also present you some best practices with all their advantages and disadvantages and some little tweaks how you can increase the availability of your Linux systems in general.
How to maximise the available capacity! by Fredy Kuenzler / Emanuel Kleindienst, Init7
Leverage the Network - Leading the Way to 400 Gb/s Ethernet Interfaces by Gerard Speelman, Alcatel-Lucent
Measurements And Tools by Vesna Manojlovic, RIPE NCC
Update from Equinix by Remco van Mook, Equinix
A presentation from Equinix about their latest developments worldwide as well as global trends in interconnection.
LISP (Locator/ID Separation Protocol) by Roque Gagliano, Cisco
LISP implements a new routing architecture and via a set of protocols that utilises a level of indirection to separate an IP address into two namespaces: Endpoint Identifiers (EIDs), which are assigned to end-hosts, and Routing Locators (RLOCs), which are assigned to devices (primarily routers) that make up the global routing system.
In addition to helping solve routing scalability issues, LISP provides many other benefits, including: simplified and cost-effective multi-homing, including ingress traffic engineering; IP address (host) mobility, including session persistence across mobility events; IPv6 transition simplification, including incremental deployment of IPv6 using existing IPv4 infrastructure (or IPv4 over IPv6); and simplified, highly-scalable network virtualisation.
The presentation will introduce the concept of Locators / EID Space separation, the basic LISP specifications and its status in the IETF. Finally, the presentation will talk about the most common LISP use cases and what can be expected in the future.
Transmission 3 - five theses for a larger, faster, easier, more reliable & scalable network by Thomas Weible, FLEXOPTIX
WouldnÕt it be fast if we would live in a world where we can transmit 100 000 000 000 single state changes over a single fibre cable ?
WouldnÕt it be better if we could communicate over a distance of 170km on a naked fibre without any boosters at a speed of 10Gpbs ?
WouldnÕt it be easy if we would have instant access to all kind of gear which we do not have to hand or forgot to order in advance, but our customer still needs the link now and not tomorrow!
How reliable would your network be if it would tell you next week there will be failure on your link to your upstream provider ?
How well would you sleep if you would know that you could scale up your network instantly if you need more bandwidth ?
Human mankind is already living in the 2 nd part of the Ethernet. Now this here is transmission 3 Š come to SwiNOG #23 for your better future.
DISCLAIMER: this speech is for technical people only. It is about a collection of optical and non-optical technologies which I have seen, used and worked on in the last 12 month. I think it is worth to mention them because you can use them to make your network longer, faster, easier, more reliable & scalable.
SwissIX Update by Basile Bluntschli, SwissIX
Domain blocking by SWITCH, is it smart?
On 01.01.2010 a new ruling has been introduced in the federal ordinance of telecommunication addressing resources. This new article (Art. 14f bis) allows SWITCH to suspend a unilaterally a domain for up to 5 days if it represents a thread (malware). the talk will be about this, is it a good/bad thing? Which is the process at SWITCH, which tools to they use? How often do they use it? Isn't it an abuse of authority? (Article in french, german).
