EXPERT NIGHT, Enterprise Multi-Homed Internet Edge Architectures

  • May 11, 2010 · 6:45 PM
  • Cisco New York Office

We are very lucky to have one of the best expert in the field to give us a talk on Internet Edge Architecture, the presentation will be covering BGP extensively, so members who have accomplished CCNP/CCIE will be hugely benefit from this meetup. However I welcome all the members working in the field and interested in the technology to join us. Abstract: As Internet bandwidth becomes more affordable, redundancy and load distribution toward multiple Internet Service Providers (ISPs) are now basic requirements for many enterprises. Selecting the appropriate toolset for a specific policy is often an arduous task given the many services and technologies deployed at the enterprise Internet Edge. These challenges present a high degree of operational complexity when implementing and maintaining this type of environment. This session will help participants understand the available technologies and how they can be applied while minimizing operational complexity. The session will highlight key areas including a review of commonly used and emerging technologies (i.e., Static Routing, Policy-based Routing, Object Tracking/IP SLA, BGP, and PfR/OER), common scenarios that illustrate how each technology operates, best practice designs, and an overview of advanced case studies involving multiple technologies/products (i.e., Multiple Firewalls, Multiple Data Centers, NAT/PAT, QoS, and IPv6). The session will focus mainly on dynamic and reliable technologies (i.e., BGP and PfR/OER) and various policy instruments (i.e., prefix length, metric/weight/preference/path/attribute manipulation, and filtering). This session is intended for network architects, designers, and operators who work for enterprises; systems integrators; and small or large service providers. Practical experience with IP Routing is a prerequisite for attendance. Presenter Bio: For the past 7 years, Michael Kowal has been involved with complex routing, switching, and security designs and architectures. He currently works on large-scale Government & Higher-Education networks to help deliver Secure Borderless Network Virtualization services including Access Control, Path Isolation (Campus-based VPNs), and Services Edge design. He is also working with Research Institutions and Regional Service Providers to architect next generation, highly available data center designs. Michael currently holds a CCIE in both Routing & Switching and Voice tracks.

    It was my first meet up with this group. It was really great. I learned a ton of information. I was so entertained that I didn't even realize how much time had passed. Great job, great venue and great expectations for the future.

    I thought the meetup was great, I enjoyed the presenter, the material, and the interaction with the group.
    It was clear that Mike knew what he was talking about and could take the questions on as a full discussion with the group which was impressive.

    Michael did a great job presenting the material and kept all of us interested and engaged. Group members asked smart questions and even added some interesting twists from their personal experiences. I also enjoyed the overview of PfR and LISP, that's a new one. Thanks to Eric, Alfredo, and Michael!
