So I count that as three +1's for ghip.
I'm curious, what makes them stand out from the crowd ?
Are they just bog standard at the right price ?
or is something specific ? ...specification, build quality, customer Service, price ?
Slightly off-topic etymological question that seems like the sort of trivia that the list might have an opinion on
A mate of mine said to me that the term 'bog standard' was short for 'British or German standard', an engineering term dating back to times when the label was some mark of quality. This contradicts the google-verse opinions but seems more plausible than some of the proffered explanations. Anyone here come across this ?
JAAMOI, what are folks using for CWDM kit these days ? We used Nortel last time, which have been fine, but now that they are no more, I was wondering what else the list might recommend?
Does anyone have recommendations for helpful and reliable VOIP services providers in the UK. We're currently on a Gradwell hosted PABX solution but it's been getting more and more unreliable and we are now starting to get customer complaints: queued calls are being dropped before the phones ring, phones unregister randomly and I get emails telling me phones have unregistered when they haven't, I can't block incoming SIP hack attempts because Gradwell can't guarantee what IP address incoming calls will come from, they don't do IPv6 etc Looking for a very basic PABX system: 8 or so extensions, incoming call queuing, voicemail. Advice gratefully received. Nigel
Hi, The IANA AS Numbers registry has been updated to reflect two changes. LACNIC has returned the range 61440-62463 in exchange for a block composed of two non-contiguous ranges: 61440-61951 263168-263679 Both ranges were allocated today.

At the last uknof meeting I had two questioners ask me for data on ADSL vs fq_codel and various rate shapers at the tail end of my talk:
Until recently the cable industry was paying the bills, not the adsl industry, and although I encouraged the questioners to do some of their own testing on their networks, I alluded to some puzzlement over the results we'd got with some preliminary testing with the ADSL devices we were able to open.
We spent some more time poking into ADSL stuff recently and it turned out the Linux "tc" rate shaping mechanism for linklayer atm and related framing things like PPPoe has been broken in Linux for quite some time. Various fixes have been discussed, but there is no one working the problem directly, presently.
The email thread discussing the problem(s) is here:
And the bug turned out to be even deeper and older than we thought. This possibly explains a lot of the anomalies we've seen so far (but by no means all! waay too many binary blobs in dsl!) with rate shaping with hfsc/htb + fq_codel, and perhaps, also, some of the ones you've seen using your existing shapers.
Whenever and however a fix or set of fixes arrives we'll go back to looking into it.

What 3rd party optics are folks using on the MX5-80 platform?
Got a quote for Smart optics but will keep some Juniper branded ones of support if needed.
We’re looking for some Transit in NGD that is independent of Telehouse London. We’re not looking to take a huge amount to start with (Less than 20 Mbps) and so we’re not keen to take a 100Mbps commit directly off the carriers already present in NGD. If anyone can help, if you can contact me (phil-jWhQ8VNdMhgqdlJmJB21zg@public.gmane.org) that would be appreciated.
Afternoon list :)
The vast majority of transit providers I come across handle billing with 95th% model, which is completely fine and I have no problem with. I far prefer it as a billing method, and currently we bill our clients the same way.
My problem is our customers don’t get it, and we really struggle to explain it to them. It seems a lot of ISPs bill their users based on transfer (ie xTB per month), and users tend to understand that model more. Our sales team want to be able to offer this model instead, but I am struggling to come up with a model that allows me to productise this.
So my question is, how do you handle the translation from 95th% to throughput billing?
Thanks in advance for any advice!
Morning, On behalf of the RIPE Programme Committee I'd like to pass on the CfP for the next RIPE meeting, taking place in Athens in October. Brian ******************* Call for Papers: RIPE 67 A RIPE Meeting is an open event where Internet Service Providers, network operators and other interested parties get together. Although the meeting is mostly technical, it is also a chance for people to meet and network with others in their field. RIPE 67 will take place on 14-18 October 2013 in Athens, Greece. The RIPE Programme Committee (PC) is now seeking content proposals from the RIPE community for the Plenary, BoF and Tutorial sessions at RIPE 67. The PC is looking for presentations covering topics of network engineering and operations, including but not limited to: - IPv6 deployment - Managing IPv4 scarcity in operations - Commercial transactions of IPv4 addresses - Data center technologies - Network and DNS operations - Internet governance and regulatory practices - Network and routing security - Content delivery - Internet peering and mobile data exchange Submissions Attendees of the RIPE meetings are quite sensitive to keeping presentations non-commercial, and product marketing talks are strongly discouraged. Repeated audience feedback shows that the most successful talks focus on operational experience, research results, or case studies. For example, presenters wishing to describe a commercial solution should focus on the underlying technology and not attempt a product demonstration. Presenters who are proposing a panel or BoF are encouraged to include speakers from several (perhaps even competing) companies and/or a neutral facilitator. In addition to presentations selected in advance for the Plenary, the RIPE PC also offers several time slots for “Lightning Talks” which are selected immediately before or during the conference. The following requirements apply: - Proposals for Plenary talks, BoFs, Panels and Tutorials must be submitted for full consideration no later than 4 August 2013, using the meeting submission system at: https://ripe67.ripe.net/submit-topic/ Proposals submitted after this date will be considered on a space-available basis. - Presenters should indicate how much time they will require (30 minutes for Plenary talks is a common maximum duration, although some talks can be longer). - Proposals for talks will only be considered by the PC if they contain at least draft presentation slides (slides may be updated later on). For panels, proposals must contain a clear description as well as names of invited panelists, presenters and moderators. - Due to potential technical issues, it is expected that most if not all presenters/panelists will be physically present at the RIPE meeting. - Tutorials are sessions with educational content and are alotted about 2 hours. - BOFs (Birds of a Feather sessions) are informal gatherings on topics of shared interest among RIPE Meeting attendees. Technical facilities and logistical support are limited and provided based on best effort and availability. - Lightning talks should also be submitted using the meeting submission system. They must be short (10 minutes maximum) and often involve more timely topics. They can be submitted at any time. The allocation of lightning talk slots will be announced one day prior to the relevant session. If you have any questions or requests concerning content submissions, please email pc [at] ripe [dot] net.
