Subject: [nznog] 2012 NZNOG "Challenges"
There's nothing like a little competition to keep folks on their toes, so I propose we
have a challenge or two during the workshop lead-up to 2012 NZNOG.
In one-day sessions, teams design (virtually - paper, white board, etc., with results to
panel in PDF format) for the following:
1. Your POP has been blown up. With only what you can grab off the shelf from Dick Smith /
Atech / Jaycar, etc., design a carrier network to handle Ethernet delivered L2TP traffic
from 100,000 ADSL subscribers, 50,000 gPON subscribers, and 20,000 SIP based VoIP
customers. You have a 3g connection to the Internet to download whatever software you need
and a $20k limit on your credit card.
2. Your government has "turned off" the Internet - i.e. blocked access to
Southern Cross. Find alternative solutions (i.e. satellite, troposcatter, packets over ham
radio, whatever) to keep the tubes going. Decide what kind of traffic is going to get
through and what isn't. Assume you have comrades on the other side to help you route
and filter as necessary. You have a 64kbps Inmarsat connection with which to download any
software you don't have on hand. You can use any form of transit that isn't SXC.
These challenges are provoked by the folks who think there's some way to turn off
"The Internet" in New Zealand - a position with which I disagree.
I'd appreciate any thoughts on the contests above, and of course any further
development of the concept.
