presentation at BITAG meeting on internet interdomain congestion

June 13th, 2014 by kc

I had the honor of being invited to the most recent BITAG (Broadband Internet Technical Advisory Group) meeting, to present some recent research (a collaboration with MIT’s CSAIL group) on identifying and analyzing instances of Internet interdomain congestion (an earlier version of which Matthew presented at a NANOG lightning talk in February).

Per their web site, BITAG’s mission is to “bring together engineers and other similar technical experts to develop consensus on broadband network management practices or other related technical issues that can affect users’ Internet experience“. (Their web site also hosts summaries of Silicon Flatirons workshop discussions that inspired the establishment of BITAG.)

It was gratifying to present to such an interested audience, who provided plenty of constructive feedback as well an invitation to join the technical working group (TWG). I look forward to future interactions with BITAG; they seem a potentially potent means of bringing much-needed transparency to increasingly compelling aspects of the Internet ecosystem.
