What the TSV ADs say about what TSVAREA said about the TSV AD position at IETF 92

Hi all,

Spencer and I have been collecting input from the Transport community 
about the Transport Area Director (AKA TSV AD) positions at IETF-92.

This email summarizes in a bullet style list what the TSV ADs say about 
what TSVAREA said about the TSV AD position

Let us know what your thoughts and ideas are!

Format of this text (exported from a working slide set, so do not get 
confused if the text says 'slides' in many places :)

Suggestions from IETF 92 TSVAREA session.
“Q:” slides are unedited suggestions.
“A:” slides are TSV AD thoughts on “Q:” slides.
This material is from the community. It is not from the current ADs 
brainstorming.

Q: Jobsharing
Two TSV folk talked to last year’s Nomcom about splitting one AD 
position and working out the details between them
Neither was able to serve as the only replacement for Spencer
They said Nomcom rejected the idea

A:Jobsharing
We had talked about this before IETF92.
It would be challenging for Nomcom (but maybe easier than finding one AD).
If this morphed into a multi-person Area Director function, that could 
give you a Smallerized IESG.

Time for new Transport Area Director nominees

Dear all,

My current term as Transport Area Director will end in April 2016 at the 
IETF-95 meeting.

I do not plan to stand again as Transport Area Director for a third term.

So, it is time for new Transport Area Director nominees :-)

In case you are interested, but you have questions about the Area 
Director role, feel free to contact me by email or see me at the 
upcoming IETF meeting.

Thank you,

   Martin

Re: Fw: Fw: I-D Action: draft-qin-tsvwg-uatnut-00.txt

Hi Xiaowei,

- Regardless of the UATN approach you mentioned in the document, I
feel like this is something like a reverse CDN. So I am wondering why
CDN providers do not have motivation to to this work? Is it technical
issues or not a problem at all.

- According to the report in [1], throughput measurements
   from over 1.5 million mobile devices have shown that compared with an
   average downstream throughput of over 1860 Kbps, the average upstream
   throughput is only about 430 Kbps.  This is because of the adoption
   of cache techniques such as CDNs to acelerate downloading large
   content that moves the "content" closer to end users.

I think the numbers you listed are not enough to prove the conclusion.
Do you have more detailed examples?

No arrow III is indicated in the paragraph.

James Polk

I wanted to let you know that our colleague and friend James Polk passed away last week. James had been
participating in the IETF for over a decade. Over the years he made many valuable contributions that
spanned the areas, with particular focus on SIP, emergency services, geolocation, and differentiated
services. Beyond his technical work, he sought to make improvements in the role of WG chair and the IETF
overall. I think we all knew him as a fierce defender of the solutions he believed in who also had a softer
side. He will be missed at the IETF and at Cisco.

Please keep James' family in your thoughts.

FYI draft text desired expertise TSV AD (NOMCOM 2015 cycle)

Dear all,

Spencer and I have finished editing the draft text for the desired 
expertise for the TSV AD in the NOMCOM 2015 cycle.

This is currently under discussion in the IESG and not yet the final 
text which will be sent to the NOMCOM

It is available here:
https://trac.tools.ietf.org/group/iesg/trac/wiki/TransportExpertise

Let Spencer and me know your comments about this until June 3rd, 2015, 
8pm CEST.

Thanks,

   Spencer and Martin

Upload Acceleration Transport Network for Upstream Traffics Generated by End Users

hi,folks

       Since many popular cloud computing services, such as YouTube, Facebook, Online Storage, etc., are proliferating rapidly these days, photos, videos and other upstream traffics generated by end users are rapidly increasing and expected to continue doing so in the future. 
       In the face of this growth, many NSPs have deployed or are deploying their own acceleration system for upload traffics. It is generally desirable that a given content item generated by End Users can be uploaded to data center accelerated by the caches which likes their downstream counterparts for maximizing throughput. 
      A given cache server in charge of receiving a given content generated by EUs may be close enough to the EU's current location or attachment network, and the content is actually delivered to the data center by the cache server on behavior of the EU. 
      End Users, NSPs and Telecommunication Service Providers (TSPs) may benefit from this arrangement:  reduced delivery cost, improved quality of experience for EUs, bottlenecks avoided, and increased robustness of delivery. Thoughts?

 regards

TSV thoughts for the upcoming IESG retreat

Dear TSV maevens, 

Martin and I will be meeting with the rest of the IESG during the first week in May, and the IESG and IAB spend one day together. 

It's worth your ADs asking if there are things that the TSV area needs the IESG to think about.

Martin and I have collected significant input about what we should ask Nomcom for in the position description for TSV ADs, so I think you can take that as read (and, in any case, we'll be sending the position description to TSV-Area for comments prior to launching it Nomcom-ward).

Is there anything else we should be aware of? If so, please reply on the TSV-Area list.

Thanks,

Your humble ADs

Agenda items for TSVAREA in Dallas

Just to keep the TSV folk in the loop, we are planning that TSVAREA will meet in Dallas.

The agenda we're thinking of, looks like this:
  • Feedback about the area for Nomcom
  • Status update on the proposed area(s) reorg
  • Report on the IAB SEMI workshop
  • Figuring out how a browser downloaded onto an arbitrary host on an arbitrary network knows what DSCPs are available (this is a follow-on to the observation that in an opportunistic security world, the boxes in the network that set DSCPs today may not have enough information to do that in the future, because so much of the packets will be encrypted)
If you've been meaning to tell us that you have an appropriate topic for TSVAREA, please let us know really soon.

Thanks,

Spencer and Martin

IETF 92 BOF cutoff date is Friday, February 6

I pointed this out at the IAB SEMI workshop, but http://www.ietf.org/meeting/important-dates-2015.html#ietf92 says the cutoff date for IETF 92 BOF requests is fast approaching. 

I note that there are currently no BOF requests in http://trac.tools.ietf.org/bof/trac/wiki :-)

If you're thinking of requesting a BOF for Dallas, letting people know really soon would be spectacular.
