Talk 1: BGP Configuration Automation

Lots of networks are in the process of implementing a network automation stack to manage their configurations. Peering Manager can help such networks keep track of BGP sessions such as transit, IXP or private peering ones.

Presenter: Guillaume Mazoyer

Talk 2: Operating Fixed Line Last Mile Networks

No fixed line network operator in the UK has to deal with the problems that Openreach does. This is a tongue in cheek look at how I learned to appreciate Openreach, and how tough it can be to build and operate a fix line access network.

Presenter: James Bensley

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.
