Over to Rodney Joffe now. Welcome to NANOG 37 Almost the NANOG that wasn't. significant effort, thanks to Merit and others; an uphill battle, both from time and location. Encourage other people to host! Not expensive, just takes time. Benefits of Hosting: choose the location (sort of): much easier to do at home. if you wait too long, you don't have a choice of venues. Tee-shirt: you get to pick designs for it! Wonderful engineering opportunties! NANOG Community--you get to give something back to the community. He's hosted through three companies now over time. Exposure--touched on by Randy and Bill yesterday. Generate favourable goodwill for your company; it's not a marketing event, but still gets name out. Network Architecture Plan A: Existing SBC/ATT OC12 at demarc cool! we should be able to get connectibity real cheap Nope: SJCC exclusive licensee says $10K charge to access it, even if gear is donated. Plan B: AboveNet GigE at the DEMARC, hot but unused, and owned by AboveNet from an earlier conf. Nope: SJCC exclusive licensee still has mandatory $10K access fee Plan C: Hilton has fiber run to SJCC infrastructure OK. Let's use microwave to connect Hilton to MAE-WEST 55 S. Market st. Plan C: Microwave from the Hilton to Joe Pucik's 13th floor office at mae-west fiber from 12th floor to 2nd floor meet me room cross connect to S&D across S&D fiber to PAIX Palo Alto to Jared Mauch/NTT But... 55 S Market == Faraday cage. :( No signal. FC quality glass. Plan D: Tango 54mb microwave from hilton to Dave 'Bungie' Rand's 18th floor penthouse roof at 50 west san fernando fiber from bungi to switch and data PAIX, to Jared Mauch at NTT. Hotel wasn't the biggest challenge, connectivity was. First thing you need to do after picking a hotel that can handle 500 people, 200 rooms. ONLY pick hotels that have fiber with someone you recognize from NANOG. Second thing is to make sure there aren't any access or use fees that have nothing to do with the equipment or bringing gear in. Otherwise, you find there are interesting charges that can be levied against you as you progress! Shout outs: Jared Mauch Christopher Queseda Joe Pucik? Ralph Whitmore Dave Rand UltraDNS and Neustar Volunteers! $10,000 colo space--picture is evil. Other end is the penthouse of the Knight Ridder building. Nice shot!
