Whilst understanding business’ requirements and building individual solutions remains NetSumo’s mission, when specifying NGN solutions we have long believed in the ‘Select 2’ rule. Building a fast and reliable network is never going to be cheap. Placing the emphasis on just price and reliability, will likely result in a network which does not perform as required. Through deployment of the latest technologies and partnerships with industry leaders like Brocade and Cisco, we are now able to reveal that FAST, RELIABLE, yet AFFORDABLE networks are available TODAY. Come and discover how we changed network deployment at Gradwell.com.

  5. 5. Quick Buzzword Overview Hot Standby Router Protocol (HSRP)/Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP)  Used as Active/Passive (sometimes Activ e/Active) failov er of gateways between two dev ices  Also used as a load-balancing technique, not 100% recommended! BGP (External Gateway Protocol - eGP)  Communicate Externally with other Networks using Autonomous System Numbers (AS Numbers)  Ability to customise routes learned, e.g. Least Cost Routing  BFD OSPF/ISIS (Internal Gateway Protocol - iGP)  Internal routing only. IPv4 and IPv6, and definition of an RIR
  6. 6. IPv4 Exhaustion andIPv6 Considerations IPv4 Exhaustion, what’s the situation?  APNIC hav e run out (19th April 2011)  RIPE, LACNIC, and AFRINIC have about 4x /8s  ARIN the winner, with near with 5.91 /8s  9 Billion online dev ices now, 24 Billing estimated by 2020! What does this mean?  Scramble for addresses  Lack of preparation by  IPv6 day – Great real world experiment… But!  IPv4 black market popping up But my network is only IPv4, what can I do?  NAT64 (IPv6 to IPv4 NATing)  Look at “Dual-Stacking”  Other options av ailable, feel free to email me!
  7. 7. Considerations whenbuilding any network or Be realistic about requirements What is the ROI/lifespan this network have?  Short, medium or long term? Expected end goal for network usage? With the total traffic, do you have enough egress connections? (i.e. transit!) Obviously, cheap, high performance and reliable!
  8. 8. Building the Gradwell NGN:The Requirements Fast, reliable and cost effective As little downtime as possible! Ability for 10G on internal backbones Gig uplinks to Egress and internal infrastructure Utilise any existing infrastructure Theoretical Budget: £12k/device Protocol Requirements:  HSRP/VRRP (helps with removing Layer2 gateways)  BGP+OSPF  MPLS capabilities for enhancing future products and services
  9. 9. Building the Gradwell NGN:Picking the Vendor Current network: Junpier for routing and Cisco for switching and Broadband Aggregation Vendor options: Brocade, Cisco, Juniper Device needs to be less than 2-3RU high Cisco had limited options for this project, ASR range only real option but didn’t fit within budget with the requirements Juniper’s best fit was the MX80. Has ability to “unlock ports” on a “pay as you go” style basis Brocade CER-RT ended up being the winner, ticking all boxes for, and breaking the “Select 2” rule!
  10. 10. Building the Gradwell NGN:The Facts Disclaimer: Prices are “ball park”/”list”, and will be subject to your discount levels! Brocade Juniper Model CER-RT MX80 Cost (IRO) £9k £15+k BGP/OSPF Y Y HSRP/VRRP VRRP VRRP MPLS Y Y IPv6 Y Y Cheap, Fast, Y/Y/Y N/Y/Y Reliable
  11. 11. Building the Gradwell NGN:The Final Run Down A cheap, reliable and affordable network running on Brocade CER-RT! Full BGP, ISIS, OSPF, IPv4+6, MPLS/VPLS Additional bonuses: BFD, VPLS Installation time, 1 day physical, 3 days prep/planning Total GigE available: 240 Total 10GigE available: 10
