Upcoming Internet Challenges
Most engineers consider explosive traffic growth and widespread use of mobile devices the most critical threats to the stability of the global Internet. They are not wrong: widespread use of mobile devices will force us to deploy IPv6 and the whole industry ill-prepared for the transition.
Unfortunately, the problems we’re facing are way deeper. TCP/IP stack has broken architecture that’s almost impossible to change and causes explosion in global routing tables. BGP, the cornerstone of global routing, lacks security features ... and the commercial realities of the Internet make it almost impossible to enforce changes that would be badly needed.
The Upcoming Internet Challenges webinar is a one-time event during which you’ll get a concise overview of some of the challenges the global Internet is facing today.
The Upcoming Internet Challenges is a 1.5 hour online presentation delivered in a WebEx classroom.
The webinar relies on basic-to-intermediate knowledge of IP addressing, IP routing architectures, TCP/IP protocol stack and the role BGP plays in the Internet. In-depth understanding of any of the aforementioned technologies is required, but you’ll definitely benefit from a prior exposure to them.
