The path to a programmable network: Open telemetry and model-driven configuration
Historically, network device configuration and telemetry has been fragile, inconsistent and difficult to maintain. Model-driven configuration and telemetry allows network policies and state to be centrally described and automatically applied, using abstract models that are consistent across vendors. This has the potential to reduce operational complexity and allows consistent telemetry gathering in multi-vendor networks.
In this session you’ll gain an overview of industry standard models including IETF and OpenConfig, learn how to perform common configuration and statistics gathering work using these models and open source tools, and walk through a practical example of migrating a manually maintained network to a programmable model-based approach through the implementation of open standards.

Computer system time and network time synchronisation
Accurate time is the foundation of information and communications. Regarding the upcoming leap second, this presentation explains how computers recognize time and handle leap second as well as the importance of system preparation to avoid any failure due to time lag caused by leap second.
Packet loss triangulation with a network fault finding systemMost network monitoring relies upon the network devices themselves providing the signal that they are healthy or unhealthy via syslog messages, SNMP, telemetry or custom APIs. In large scale networks, we can’t trust the network devices to accurately report health in all the possible failure cases that may exist. At Facebook, in addition to standard monitoring tools, we also actively probe our networks with test traffic to ensure the platform is behaving as we expect. With active monitoring, we can find the network elements that don’t know they are dropping/mangling packets even when they exist several layers deep inside the network. During the presentation, we will show how we built a sample open source system that achieves the same result using open source tools and perform a live demo with a lab network from start to finish, introducing packet loss and showing how the system can identify where the loss is occurring in real time.

Optical Communication Trends in data centers
Our topic covers mainly on the optical trends in data centre. As the demand for bandwidth continues to increase exponentially, data center operators need to understand how they can effectively scale their optical structured cabling as they grow – example from 10G to 100G and eventually to 400G. Knowing what are the best practices and standards can help data center operators to avoid pitfalls with reduced overall CapEx and OpEx.

5G transport networking: Requirement, reference & new business
The mobile communications industry has entered the 5G era. In the 5G network architecture, the eMBB, mMTC, and URLLC scenarios are defined to provide services with high bandwidth, low latency, and massive access. The 5G does not only require new technologies of air interface, but also makes new requirements for the bearer network. In the session of 5G Transport Networking, we will discuss the requirements of the 5G for the bearer network, what technologies will be used in the 5G bearer network, and also the architecture of the 5G bearer network. In addition, this session will also analyzes a user case of the 5G bearer network design.

Let’s talk about routing security
This presentation covers routing security at the Internet Scale in detail with a focus on IRR. It talks about how IRRs work, the challenges in IRR based filtering as well as some of the tools which can be used. It also touches RPKI as well as developments IRR-RPKI integration in the next version of IRR daemon.
Engineering new IP transport
SP networks have been deployed with Traditional MPLS in the last decade. It is time for SP to reconsider reinventing the network to support the below:- – high speed bandwidth – Ultra low latency services – web-scale – automation – programmability
For these, Segment Routing is key.
Cloudflare and RPKI at scaleOver the last year, Cloudflare deployed RPKI.
From signing hundreds of routes to ensuring our routers have the latest ROAs, we came across many operational challenges and we worked hard to make deploying this framework a piece of cake.We will be presenting our results and share our good practices for everyone who wish to setup painlessly RPKI on their network.

Make the Internet safe with DNS firewall
Use Of DNS Firewalls Could Reduce 33% Of All Cybersecurity Breaches, New Global Cyber Alliance Research Finds.
Over 91% percent malware uses DNS(As Cisco 2016 Annual Cyber security report). Nearly all the cryptominer stuffs uses DNS based C&C(As Cisco 2016 Annual Cyber security report).
DNS firewall allows a recursive server to control the behaviour of responses to queries. Administrator to overlay custom information on top of the global DNS to provide alternate responses to queries.
DNS firewall will block DNS resolution, machines connecting to the C&C, malware, phishing, cyrptominer domains. In this paper we will present a case study to implement DNS firewall in an ISP and we will show how it can be use as threat hunting tool.
