The Early Internet and Measurement: Jon Crowcroft

Mirjam Kühne

The early Internet was not only about designing transport protocols, developing control planes, and understanding how to build faster physical transports. Measurement played a huge role in understanding what needed to be changed, what needed to be developed and understanding why the protocols that …

M-TCP: Olivier Bonaventure

Mirjam Kühne

MultiPath TCP (MPTCP) is an effort towards enabling the simultaneous use of several IP-addresses/interfaces by a modification of TCP that presents a regular TCP interface to applications, while in fact spreading data across several subflows. Benefits of this include better resource utilisation, bet…

BGP Churn and Addpaths: Daniel Walton

Mirjam Kühne

BGP is a nondeterminstic protocol, which means it can converge on different paths depending on the order in which they are received. In this recording, Daniel Walton talks about the discovery and research around BGP churn, and the solutions the routing community adopted to solve the problem.
