NetLdn #15 – 14/01/21

Location: Zoom

Our first meeting for 2021 will be a combined meeting with our NetMcr friends. As such we’ll be starting at the slightly later time of 1930hrs UTC.

The meeting will be held online using Zoom. The meeting room ID and password will be shared on the day of the event to the mailing list and on Slack.

Please join from 1915hrs onward. 
Talks begin promptly at 1930hrs.

Talk 1: O-RAN

Andy will be speaking to us this time about O-RAN. As an area of mobile radio technology that has the potential to transform the landscape of mobile networks across the world, we’re extremely excited to hear from Andy, particularly given his wealth of hands-on industry experience in this area.

Presenter: Andy Sutton

Talk 2: It is time to replace MD5 with TCP-AO

As many of us will have come to understand over the years, MD5 passwords on eBGP sessions have something of a spotty implementation record. Ron will be introducing the TCP Authentication Option as its replacement, and the state of implementation &  interoperability between two well-known router vendors.

For anyone concerned about routing security, this is sure to be an extremely pertinent presentation. 

Presenter: RON BONICA (Juniper)

After Talks: Networking for Networkers

Stay in the meeting room and have a free-for-all chit-chat about whatever is on your mind. This is a bring-your-on drinks and nibbles session.
