These devices will usually operate in a highly constrained environment in terms of physical size, available memory, CPU power and battery life over wireless and wired networks of potentially varying quality. This type of operational environment throws up quite a number of networking challenges in protocol design at various layers. This presentation starts by explaining the subtle differences between IoT/IoE and M2M and how they are inter-related. It then highlights the various protocols from the link layer up to the messaging layer such as RF Mesh, Power Line Comms and CoAP. The second half of the presentation concentrates on the development of an emerging IPv6 routing protocol called RPL which has been specifically designed to support IoT networks. IoT networks typically support thousands to millions of sensor nodes (commonly referred to as motes) over connections that are intrinsically are lossy in nature such low power wireless and power line communications. The presentation covers the technologies and innovations that were necessary to allow huge numbers of Smart Objects/IoT devices to route information over IPv6 in the Internet of Things in a scalable manner.
BRKVIR-2012 - Inside the Nexus 1000v (2014 Melbourne)The recent trend of virtualising servers has a huge impact on the underlying network. Computers are no longer physical, immovable objects that plug nicely into your network switches and remain for a while; they are transient creations that can come and go in the blink of an eye. And it's not stopping there... With a virtual distributed switch we restore network visibility to the boundary of the virtual machine, not just to the boundary of the physical host that runs the hypervisor. Bringing the complete feature set of networking to a massively virtualised Data Centre requires some new design concepts. This session describes the Nexus 1000v from a development point of view. It describes the design challenges and why we made certain implementation decisions. At the end of the session you will have a good understanding of what the Nexus 1000v virtual switch adds to your network and how it is designed.

CP-1006 - Network Models and the Network ArchitectOne of the very first things any aspiring network engineer learns is the OSI seven layer model -- but once it's learned, it's often left in the background, another trivia item that doesn't seem to be much use in the real world. Leaving models in the background is, however, a mistake; these are some of the most useful tools the network engineer has to classify and understand protocols and network operation. This session will discuss the history behind the popular seven layer model, and then move into some other models network engineers might find useful, including some you may never have seen before.
