Designing Layer 2 Networks - Avoiding Loops, Drops, Flooding (2013 Melbourne) Speaker(s): Rolando Salinas

Designing Layer 2 networks is easy. Apparently. In fact there are many traps and dependencies. Three issues of Layer 2 networks - loops, traffic drop and excessive flooding can be demanding. This session is to discuss and present how to avoid them with the standard design techniques or by new mechanisms.

Cisco Catalyst Virtual Switching System (VSS) (2013 London) Speaker(s): Rolando Salinas

Virtual Switching System (VSS) technology on Cisco's Catalyst 6500, Catalyst 4500 and Catalyst 4500X series switches enables the virtualization of two physically separate chassis into a single logical entity for configuration, management, network design and packet forwarding. The Virtual Switching System opens up new doors into how traditional networks can be designed whilst still maintaining the highest levels of system availability, forwarding capacities and feature richness. This session provides a detailed analysis on the architecture of the Virtual Switching System and will cover multiple aspects such as its fundamental concepts, conversion from standalone to VSS, VSS forwarding architecture, hardware and software requirements, network design implications and its impact to System High Availability, QoS, Integrated Security features as well as Operation, Management and Troubleshooting. This session will also explain newer features including Quad-Supervisor support, as well as how to perform software upgrades with a VSS. The target audiences for this session are both Enterprise and Service Provider attendees who have worked with and are familiar with the Catalyst series switches.

Secure Converged Wired, Wireless Campus (2013 London) Speaker(s): Vaibhav Katkade , Rolando Salinas

This session provides an overview of the Cisco TrustSec Security Group Access (SGA) solution for Role-Based Access Control with focus on Campus Network. SGA allows for simplified network segmentation based on User Identity/Role and allows for secure access and consistent security policies across Wired/Wireless networks. SGA helps define BYOD policies through security policies based on User/Role/Device/Location. The session covers SGA on the Catalyst Switching platforms, including converged wired/wireless. The session covers an architectural overview of SGA and benefits of a converged wired/wireless network, elements of Cisco TrustSec such as user identification with 802.1x, device identification, role classification using Security Group Tagging (SGT) and enforcement using Security Group Access Control List (SGACL). We also discuss various SGA deployment use cases in a campus network. This session is for Network Architects, Pre-Sales Engineers and Technical Decision Makers.

Deploying Campus Security Group Tags (2013 Melbourne) Speaker(s): Rolando Salinas

This session explains how the combination of Security Group Tags (SGT) extend context aware role based access control from the edge into the entire network. Role based access control can be used in support of business requirements like regulatory compliance and BYOD. This session covers the protocols and functions that create a trusted network. We will discuss the best practices when deploying this tagging ability using campus switches including migration techniques from non-SGT capable to devices to a fully SGT capable network deployment.

Cisco Catalyst 6500 Instant Access Solution - Design and Migration Case Studies (2014 Melbourne) Speaker(s): Rolando Salinas

The Cisco Catalyst Instant Access Solution simplifies campus or large branch network deployment and operations. IT staff can deploy access switches instantly through a single touch point with feature and configuration consistency. With Instant Access, Cisco Catalyst 6800ia access switches are connected to Cisco Catalyst 6500 or 6800 Series core switches. The entire configuration works as a single extended switch with a single management domain. This session will begin with an overview of the Cisco Instant Access deployment model followed by an examination of actual customer deployments. Also included will be a review of recent proof of concept testing where multiple failure and scalability test cases were performed. Attendees can expect to learn about the specific requirements for deploying an Instant Access topology as well as the expected behaviors related convergence and scalability.
