Announcing FRRouting, a new Linux Foundation Collaborative Project

The Network Device Education Foundation (NetDEF) with it’s OpenSourceRouting Project starts together with 128 Technology, 6WIND, ATCorp, Big Switch Networks, Cumulus Networks, ISC, LabN, Orange and Volta Networks the new FRRouting project under the umbrella of the Linux Foundation.

It’s an exiting moment in our history and in the history of the industry to get a new fork of Quagga started and evolve it into the best open source routing stack. FRRouting (FRR) is an IP routing protocol suite for Unix platforms which includes protocol daemons for BGP, IS-IS, LDP, OSPF, PIM, and RIP

RIPE 72 – Ideas and Challenges on Testing a Routing Protocol

Martin Winter presented a talk entitled “Ideas and Challenges on Testing a Routing Protocol – Experiences Testing Quagga” at RIPE 72 in Copenhagen, Denmark on May 26th, 2016.

The transcript is available along with the powerpointPDF and video

 

 

MARTIN WINTER: Welcome everyone. I want to talk a little bit about some ideas we have on how we test like a routing protocol, and the challenge we faced there and I’m using Quagga as an example because that’s what I’m working on but a lot of these things may apply to any other especially Open Source committee with routing stack, so it could be used for any other of the routing stacks too, some of the things may even be hints if you test commercial routers, some ideas what you can do.

NetDEF to Present Tutorial at OpenDaylight Summit 2015

twitter-snackable-opendaylight-summit-2015-date-clearNetwork Device Education Foundation, Inc. (NetDEF), is pleased to announce that its founder, Steven Noble, will be presenting an in-depth user tutorial on Open Networking at the OpenDaylight Summit on Monday, July 27, 2015 during the 1:30 p.m. time period.
The tutorial has been designed to cater to members of the networking community who are looking to integrate SDN concepts into their existing network infrastructure utilizing the OpenDaylight SDN Controller and OpenFlow capable switches.  The tutorial will consist of multiple network devices configured to emulate a standard LAN running classic routing protocols that will be migrated to a simple Software Defined Network utilizing the OpenDaylight SDN controller, Quagga and OpenFlow.

Mr. Noble is recognized for his expertise in the area of networking going back nearly two decades, having worked for companies such as Cisco Systems, Exodus Communications and, most recently, as the Chief Technology Officer at Sideband Networks.

“OpenDaylight is pleased to welcome NetDEF to the OpenDaylight Summit in Santa Clara,” said Neela Jacques, executive director, OpenDaylight. “It’s been great to see them do some of the first third party scalability testing of OpenDaylight, and and we’re delighted they will be sharing their expertise via a tutorial on how to integrate OpenDaylight into existing networks.”

About the OpenDaylight Summit:

OpenDaylight Summit is where the industry meets to collaborate on networking’s de facto open SDN platform. It brings together users, developers and the SDN community to discuss, debate and demonstrate the latest technologies and trends in open SDN.

About the Network Device Education Foundation:

The Network Device Education Foundation, Inc, is a federally recognized 501c3 corporation providing needed assistance to the networking community through training, testing and via the support of open source software.

NetDEF to present IS-IS HomeNet at IETF 93

Network Device Education Foundation, Inc. (NetDEF), is pleased to announce that it will be presenting a demonstration of the IS-IS HomeNet implementation in Quagga at the 93rd IETF on Thursday, July 23, 2015 during the IETF Bits-N-Bites.

The demo will include features such as:
IS-IS running over IPv6 link-local addresses
Multicast device discovery via Multicast HELLO messages
Redistribution of both static and directly connected routes
Arbitrary plug’n’play functionality (cold boots, cable pulls).

The IS-IS HomeNet implementation has been done in both C and Erlang and both will be demonstrated.

About the IETF Bits-N-Bites:

Bits-N-Bites is focused on Internet standards, technology and related subjects. Nearly 1,200 engineers, computer scientists and academicians, who are in the forefront of developing standards for the continuing expansion and robustness of the Internet from more than 40 countries and leading corporations worldwide, will meet at IETF 93 in Prague, Czech Republic.

Exhibitors, product vendors, and service providers will be able to share information and showcase products and services to IETF community in a social setting with hors d’oeuvres and cocktails.
