Title: International Management of Internet Resources
Rob Blokzijl (RIPE)
Abstract: For the Internet to function properly, a set of resources needs to be managed in a co-ordinated way. These resources include Internet Protocol addresses, Autonomous System Numbers, Domain Name System parameters, and Internet Standards. These resources have been traditionally managed by a number of organisations. In this presentation we will introduce these organisations and the way they are organised. It will be demonstrated that they have all been organised along the same lines: by a bottom up and open process of industry self-regulation.

Title: What is RIPE?

Title: Saving costs through maximising peering relationships
Speaker: Serge Radovcic (Euro-IX), Vanessa Evans (LINX)
Abstract: The presentation will outline how costs can be reduced within your networks by maximising peering opportunities in Europe and US. It is an interactive session which will attempt to verify the current situation in Russia:

  • Low demand means prices have remained high
  • Incountry regulation means less networks being built in Russia

How Layer 2 connectivity can work towards reducing costs and maximising peering relationships.

Serge Radovcic will further outline how the European Internet Association (Euro-IX) provides a useful set of data and tools for those ISPs looking to peer at an Exchange Point in Europe.

Title: Routing: How traffic flows in the Internet
Speaker: Philip Smith (CISCO Systems)
Abstract: This presentation is an introduction to how routing in the Internet works.

It introduces some of the terminologies used, gives an explanation of how devices on the Internet communicate, and describes the constituent parts of the network infrastructure between these devices. The presentation looks at the routing design and operation of individual ISP networks, and how those interconnect to create what we know as the Internet today.

Title: IPv4 Address Lifetime Expectancy
Speaker: Axel Pawlik (RIPE NCC)
Abstract: In this presentation, Axel Pawlik presents the latest results of research and analysis concerning usage of the IPv4 address space within the Internet. Using the history of allocation by the IANA to RIRs and by the RIRs to ISPs, and of address announcements by ISPs into the global routing tables, it is possible to determine projected dates when all available address space will be consumed. These projections indicate a long life for remaining IPv4 address reserves, however it is noted that no attempt is made to predict environmental or technological changes that may alter future consumption rates.

Title: IPv6 Update
Speaker: Leo Vegoda (RIPE NCC)
Abstract: This presentation will provide an overview and detailed statistics of IPv6 allocations in the region versus IPv6 allocations in the entire RIPE NCC Service region.

Title: K-root Nameserver Operations
Speaker: Andrei Robachevsky (RIPE NCC)
Abstract: The RIPE NCC has operated one of the 13 DNS root servers - nameserver since 1997. To improve the regional distribution, resiliency and performance of the root name service provided by the k.root-server, the RIPE NCC have begun an effort to deploy mirror instances of the K-root service throughout its service region using anycast routing.

The presentation starts with an overview of the root server system and then describes the server in more detail. It will focus specifically on the deployment of mirror instances of the server, its current status and future plans.
