Watch LIVE Now – Jan Zorz at UKNOF Talking About Best Current Operational Practices (BCOP)

UKNOF26Curious to learn about efforts to capture best current operational practices (BCOPs) from network operators around the world?  In the next 15-30 minutes, our colleague Jan Zorz will be speaking on this topic at the UK Network Operators Forum.  The live stream can be viewed at:


Jan’s slides are also available online.  From the UKNOF 26 agenda, here is the abstract of what Jan will be speaking about:

There is an opportunity to better identify, capture, and promote best current operational practices documents emerging from various regional network operators’ groups. We believe sharing these documents across the globe would benefit the wider Internet community and help more operators deploy new technologies like IPv6 and DNSSEC faster and easier.

In addition, there is an opportunity to improve communications between the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) standards making process and operators around the globe. We believe standards could be better designed and implemented if more operators that actually use them in their real-world networks agreed on what they need and provided more feedback into the RFC process within the IETF.

In this presentation, Jan Zorz from the Internet Society Deploy360 Programme will discuss options on how to start answering three specific questions:

  • Would operators benefit from documenting the best current operational practices in different regions and globally?
  • What might be the best path forward to closing these communication gaps and creating such a document repositories?
  • Do you agree that there is a communication gap between the IETF and real-world network operators?

Many operators need down-to-earth information on how to fix their current issues and how to implement new technologies coming out of the IETF. How can the Internet Society help facilitate this work?
