Tutorial: Optics

Everything you ever wanted to know about optical networking but were afraid to ask. Example topics include: * How fiber works (the basics, fiber types and limitations, etc) * Working with optics (choosing the right type, designing optical networks, etc) * Optical power (understanding dBm, loss, using light meters, etc) * DWDM (how it works, muxes, oadms, amps, etc) * Dispersion (what is it, why do we care, how do we fix it) * Optical Myths (can I hurt myself looking into fiber, can I overload my optic)

Tutorial: Traceroute

Many people think they understand how to use and understand traceroute, yet the large number of traceroute based tickets at any sizable ISP proves that the vast majority of people do not. Even the ISPs themselves are frequently unable to come up with staff who are qualified to look at a traceroute and interpret it correctly. This presentation identifies how to accurately interpret traceroute results.
