Deploy360 18 April 2017

Deploy360 @ MENOG17

By Aftab SiddiquiSenior Manager, Internet Technology - Asia-Pacific

The Deploy360 team will be busy this week at the MENOG 17 (Middle East Network Operators Group) in Muscat, Oman on 19th and 20th April 2017. The agenda of the event has been announced and the program is packed with great presentations/talks relevant to the network operator’s community. MENOG PC has done a remarkable job once again. At present, the attendee list is showing 272 people who have registered for the events and which is likely to grow as we approach the event.

Day 1 (19th April) is dedicated to the Peering, Content and Interconnection. After the opening and keynote speech, Google, Hurricane Electric (HE), PCH and others will present.

The first session on Day 2 (20th April) will be chaired by Aftab Siddiqui on IPv6. In this session Jan Zorz will present “NAT64/DNS64 Real Life Experiments; Warnings and One Useful Tool”, where he’ll talk about the NAT64/DNS64 experiments undertaken by Go6lab and IPv6-lab. As many mobile operators are moving to IPv6 only, it’s necessary to employ transition mechanisms such as 464XLAT or NAT64. The Go6lab NAT64/DNS64 testbed has therefore been established so that operators, service providers, and hardware and software vendors can see how their solutions work in these environments. This is a really interesting presentation, so be sure to catch this session if you’re involved with IPv6 deployment.

Later during the day in lightning talks, Aftab Siddiqui will present an introduction to MANRS initiative,  Mutually Agreed Norms for Routing Security (MANRS) is an initiative of network operators to establish a very well recognised industry supported baseline for implementation of essential security measures.

This is going to be a special event as MENOG will be celebrating a big landmark i.e. 10 years of successful community effort for the progress and cooperation in the region.

MENOG17 is providing an opportunity to come and meet the team and hear about what the Internet Society is doing, but we’re always happy to talk anytime about technology and how we can make the Internet a better place. If you are planning to attend the event then don’t forget to catch up with Deploy 360 team.
