Switching 1.5 Terabits/sec
AMS-IX is one of the largest internet exchanges in the world with over 450 connected ISPs and switching 1,3Tbit/s of internet traffic. The network is build using Brocade service provider hardware with a MPLS/VPLS configuration. For redundancy layer1 optical switches (Glimmerglass) are used and MRV hardware is implemented to provide DWDM based backbone links.
This talk will cover two parts:
First we will go over the basic structure of the Internet, what peering is, how it works, and the role of AMS-IX in this structure. Even though most sysadmins and network admins understand networking, the Internet is mostly a black hole. They send out an ip packet to another host and somehow it arrives at the other side of the world. This part should explain how this packed can be routed over the Internet.
The second part will cover the technical network design from the AMS-IX platform. We will go over the basic problems when providing a large broadcast domain, going over the MPLS/VPLS design of the AMS-IX platform, and ending with the redundancy solution that is provided.
About the speaker:
Attilla de Groot has been network engineer for two years at AMS-IX. He started there after graduating at the University of Amsterdam. Next to his work he has been involved in networking over the last few years, mostly wireless.

DNSSEC is taking off: The root was signed this year and many top-level domains are DNSSEC-ready. The focus is now shifting to second-level domain owners; they can now start rolling out DNSSEC. But DNSSEC is a complex technology and many organizations face.
Next Generation Firewalls

During the last 15 years the firewall in a corporate network has changed quite a bit. In the last couple of years we see more firewalls that can be depicted as a "next generation firewall".
