Details

We're glad to host Hannes Frederic Sowa, programmer at backtrace.io (http://backtrace.io/) and has worked on the Linux Kernel networking stack (focusing on IPv6). Hannes will be presenting on BBR: Congestion-Based Congestion Control (https://research.google.com/pubs/pub45814.html)by N. Cardwell, et. al.

Talk

TCP congestion control has a large impact on perceived network performance (especially in terms of bandwidth and latency) and thus the Internet. Two major categories of congestion control algorithms had been explored, those using packet loss or packet delay feedback. Due to historic developments (and the development of packet switching hardware), packet-loss congestion control algorithms are commonly used today. We will discuss a congestion control scheme published by Google in 2017.

Bio

Hannes Frederic Sowa recently joined http://backtrace.io , and is onsite in New York for a month. Normally he resides in Zurich, Switzerland. Before switching jobs, he worked on the Linux Kernel networking stack focusing on IPv6. Hannes interest in higher level languages has recently been rebooted. During off-time and when not reading, he enjoys spontaneous trips with minimal luggage or crashing flight simulators.

Doors open at 6:30 pm; the presentations will begin right around 7:00 pm; and, yes, there will be refreshments of all kinds and pizza.
