100G Forwarding Architecture Challenges
Meeting: NANOG42
Date / Time: 2008-02-19 10:15am - 11:30am
Room: Imperial Ballroom B Level
Presenters: Moderators:
Ted Seely, Sprint.

Igor Gashinsky, Yahoo!

Igor Gashinsky is a principal architect at Yahoo!, a global content provider, where he is involved in projects ranging from overall network design (including highly resilient switching and routing architecture, peering, MPLS, L4-7 loadbalancing), as well as scalable content delivery methodologies and DNS architecture.

David Tsiang, Cisco Systems

David Tsiang has been working at Cisco since 1989 developing various router platforms such as the AGS+, 7000, 7500, GSR and CRS-1. He is a Distinguished Engineer in the Carrier Router Business Unit responsible for CRS1 system architecture. Before Cisco, he I worked on hardware development at ROLM and IBM. David has a BSEE from the University of Michigan and twelve issued patents.

Joel Goergen, Force10

Joel Goergen is Vice President of technology and chief scientist for Force10 Networks and has more than 18 years of research experience in high speed analog signaling. Prior to joining Force10, he headed research projects at Bell Labs, Ascend Communications, Transition Networks and MTS Systems. He received a BSEE and a BA in mathemeatics from St. Cloud State University and actively participates in various standards bodies. In the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc (IEEE), Joel is helpng to define 802.3 LAN standards, and in the Optical Internetworking Forum (OIF), he is focusing on research that leads to fast, narrow copper or optical interfaces. His latest industry research is the SDD21 baseline channel model referenced by the IEEE 802.3AP back plane working group.

Aris Wong, Foundry Networks

Aris Wong has been with Foundry Networks since 2000. He is a Hardware Engineering Manager, overseeing the architecture as well as responsible for development of next generation products. He was one of the engineers working to deliver the industry first 10GE line-card and platform. He holds B.E. (Hon) degree in electrical engineering from University of Hong Kong and two issued patents.
Abstract: There has been much discussion and many presentations given around forthcoming 100Gb standards within the NANOG arena, however very little of that discussion has addressed the challenges facing the equipment suppliers in developing the forwarding engines required to meet those speed challenges. This panel will focus on those challenges, and span the challenges facing the system suppliers today from backplane and signal integrity issues to fib lookups and re-writing headers at 100G FDX, and finally queuing challenges to/from the fabric and interfaces.
