Deploy360 @ NLNOG Day 2016

By Kevin MeynellFormer Senior Manager, Technical and Operational Engagement

nlnog_logoThe Deploy360 team will be supporting NLNOG Day this coming Friday, 9 September 2016, which is being organised by the Netherlands Network Operator Group in Amsterdam. There are still some free places available, although you’re encouraged to make a donation when you register.

Our colleague Jan Žorž will be talking about TLS and DANE, including the testing he’s done in the Go6Lab, which will be followed by a mystery talk on TLS by an as yet to be announced speaker.

Jan-Piet Mens will be covering how to automate network configuration with an overview of Ansible, which is an open source software platform written in Python for configuring and managing multi-node software deployment, ad-hoc task execution, and configuration management. For those interested in traffic telemetry, Paolo Lucent ( will discuss pmacct which correlates different data sources including BGP, BMP and IGP and builds multiple views of network traffic for analytic, modelling or forensic purposes. Ondřej Caletka (CESNET) will also discuss the FENIX initiative that aims to build a highly-trusted community of network operators who can communicate via a spoofing-free VLAN in the event of a massive cyberattack.

Worth the (non-)admission price alone though, should be the Final Update on the ARPANET TCP/IP migration of 1983 from Ron Broersma (US Navy); one of the Internet pioneers who was involved in the last big addressing migration from NCP (with its 256 addresses) to IPv4. Richard Patterson (Sky Broadband) will bring things more up to date with the lessons learned from dual stacking broadband subscribers, whilst Johan Stokking (The Things Network) gives a dimension into LoRaWAN, which is the ultra low bandwidth networking that’s important for the Internet-of-Things.

The full programme can be found on the NLNOG website. The event is being held at the Podium Mozaïek in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, and will also be streamed (details to be announced).
