The internet infrastructures in Greece

(Speaker: GR-IX – Michalis Oikonomakos

GR-IX is a neutral and independent Internet Exchange, the mission of which is to facilitate the exchange of Internet traffic and to accelerate the growth of the Greek Internet. It constitutes a critical national Internet infrastructure as it interconnects all major Internet players in Greece, such as Internet service providers, content providers, cloud providers etc. GR-IX, is the neutral internet exchange in Greece. In this presentation we will provide a thorough insight on the internet infrastructure in Greece (major networks, datacenters, terrestrial and submarine cables etc.)  with a focus on the Greek Internet Exchange (GR-IX) and its crucial part in developing the Greek internet ecosystem.

Euro-IX Update

(Speaker: EURO-IX – Rebecca Class-Peter

Euro-IX is a membership association formed in 2001 to develop, strengthen and improve the Internet Exchange Point (IXP) community.
This presentation will give an overview of our projects including the work of the Internet eXchange Federation and the IXPDB (a database that allows IXPs full control on all IXP related data and includes data sets on; the IXP participants, IXP locations, hardware used at IXPs and its participants Route Servers. We will also introduce the Peering Toolbox project and how you can get involved.

How synthetic testing can help your peering strategy

(Speaker: Kentik – Nina Bargisen

Ping, smokepings and traceroutes are old-school tools for peering coordinators and network engineers. So, what’s all the fuss about synthetics tests in the context of network observability? In this presentation, Nina Bargisen will share examples of how synthetic testing provides valuable insights and saves time for peering folks.

IP routing at 400GE, 800GE and beyond

(Speaker: NOKIA – Jonas Vermeulen

Global bandwidth consumption increased 3 times in 2021 as digitization at work, home and school accelerated during the global pandemic. The wave of 400GE IP routing satisfied this bandwidth demand, with many optical module variants emerging depending on use case, cost and technology. With 800GE around the corner, early adopters will gain many benefits. But with the diversity of optical pluggable modules, form factors, specifications and power considerations, making the right choice is not easy. This presentation provides a brief overview of the technologies and trends that enable IP routing at 400GE, 800GE and beyond. It touches on considerations such as optical interface technologies, power, cooling and system design that will influence IP routing in the future.

The Road to 400G

(Speaker: LINX – Manolis Mathioudakis

LINX recently introduced the option of 400GE ports for members in partnership with its vendor partner, Nokia. This presentation covers why this is important, the complexity of a mixed vendor network and the development process to get to where we are today.
 
Why LINX’s 400GE Solution Matters
LINX’s most significant exchange is the LON1 LAN in London which has been converted from MPLS/VPLS to MPLS/EVPN. LINX now have a proven approach with a large scale EVPN network with multi-vendor approach to get to 400GE.
During this project LINX learnt that working with a mixed vendor solution brings significant challenges in testing, acceptance and in-house ownership. It also highlights problems with how standardised protocol implementation still varies.
Other IXPs, network designers and datacentre fabric operators will be interested in how LINX completed their journey, and what potential issues they should look out for themselves in their own progress towards 400GE.

DDoS Mitigation by Community Cooperation, and other fun

(Speaker: Team Cymru – James Shank

From the early days of the Internet, we, the operators of the Internet, have worked together to connect the world. This takes collaboration and events like Peering Days to pull people together for connecting networks. Team Cymru’s done a similar thing, pulling networks together for collaborative DDoS Mitigation. We host a free community service, called UTRS: Unwanted Traffic Removal Service, to accomplish this goal. We’ll walk through what UTRS is, how to connect, and give a brief overview of other community services Team Cymru offers.
