BGP Error Handling and Enhancements Post IETF-79

              · · ·

With IETF 79 happening last week - I think one of the great things that's coming out of the IDR work leading up to the meeting has been that quite a few drafts have been written around the requirements that exist in BGP for better error handling. I've been vocal about this before, of course, so it's not that surprising that I'm (yet again) banging the drum for this cause, however, we are getting somewhere finally.

Tom Bird of PortFast and Brandon Butterworth of Bogons do a great job of webcasting, and recording UKNOF video. Thanks to them, the video of the presentation I gave at UKNOF16 can be watched here. Or you can download it by clicking the image below! As always, thoughts/comments/corrections most welcome! This is also probably a good time to mention that my new work mail address is rob.shakir (at)

UKNOF 16: Enhancing BGP

              · · · · ·

After a late programme committee request, I presented on “Enhancing BGP” at UKNOF 16. The presentation was intended to be an update on the current drafts in the IDR working group, and give some encouragement to operators to get involved, and contribute. I’ll put the video up when the Tom at PortFast and Brandon of Bogons have done their excellent job on it. For the meantime, the slides are linked below.

Further to my previous post - I presented this issue at LINX65 - video and slides can be found below. Video Fixed Slides - LINX’s PowerPoint install seems to have corrupted my slides on the day. Comments and feedback are most welcome.
