Loa Andersson, MPLS IETF WG Chairman

Loa Andersson is co-chair of the IETF MPLS-WG working group. He has been involved in MPLS standardization since the start and has contributed to key MPLS, L2VPN, L3VPN, DETNET and GMPLS specifications. He is also a regular contributor the yearly MPLS+SDN+NFV World Conference in Paris since the conference started.   Currently questions on low latency and deterministic networking has come into focus and Loa is contributing to that work.
  For several years he has worked as Consulting Senior MPLS Expert at Huawei.  

08.30 Security Session
Rethinking Network Security
  • Understanding volumetric DDoS attacks: what they are, how they work and how to counter them
  • Reviewing the current DDoS mitigation approaches and shortcomings
  • Introducing secure peering approach based on in-line DDoS mitigation
  • Discussing applications and benefits compared to present solutions

Philippe Bergeon,
Product Line Manager, IP Optical Networks Division, Nokia
SDN with NextGen Security for Multicloud
Demonstrating how by defining policies based on intent, using metadata to pass policy information across distributed enforcement points and adopting an SDN solution with integrated L4-L7 next-gen security VNF services, it is possible to have an effective multicloud end-to-end security wrap.

Hyperscale IGP Routing
Data centre networks have been leveraging BGP for underlay routing, largely due to Link State IGP scaling concerns, the ready availability of open source BGP stacks and, in some cases, in order to better control policy. Detailing an innovative approach to hyperscale IGP routing that will have a transformative impact on how scale-out networks are built, from cloud data centres to SP metros and core backbones.

Speaker from Arista
Fast Traffic Restoration during Border Node Failures
  • BGP PIC Edge node protection (draft-ietf-rtgwg-bgp-pic)
  • MPLS egress node protection (draft-ietf-mpls-egress-protection-framework)
  • Anycast SID (draft-ietf-spring-mpls-anycast-segments)
  • BGP Prefix SID (draft-ietf-idr-bgp-prefix-sid)
  • Inter-domain SR-TE tunnels (draft-farrel-spring-sr-domain-interconnect)
  • BGP abstract next-hop (draft to be submitted) to rapidly increase BGP traffic restoration
