Shawn Morris, VP - Systems, Applications, and Software, Global IP Network at NTT
BGP disruptions happen frequently, generally by accident. But BGP can be hijacked for more malicious intent such as spying, data interception, or as a sort of denial of service attack. It is estimated that so far about half of the internet is more protected due to heavy hitters like NTT Ltd.’s Global IP Network division adopting BGP improvements.
So, what actually makes good routing policies "good"?
The telecoms industry has mostly focused on teaching each other how to implement BGP features in their networks, but there has been very little dialogue on how to design robust policies. Many global carriers do not even educate their customers on how to use and take advantage of them. In this webinar, NTT and the Global IP Network will offer a conceptual model to look at routing policies, offer terminology to help discuss them, and analyze routing policy design patterns and best practices.
Join the webinar to:
•Understand the basic concepts of BGP
•Learn best practices to build robust BGP Routing Policies
•Review the experience of NTT and the Global IP Network
