APNIC participated at the BKNIX Peering Forum 2017 in Bangkok, Thailand, from 16 to 17 May 2017.
Hosted by the Thai Network Information Center Foundation (THNICF), this is the second year the event has been held. It welcomed representatives from national and international peering and interconnection communities for two days of learning, information sharing, and networking.
- Che-Hoo Cheng participated in the panel for ‘Peering Tools & Best Practices’ with four other panellists. The panel moderator prepared five questions covering different aspects of peering for the five panellists, which stimulated substantial follow-up questions from the floor. Although Che-Hoo was asked to prepare a quick introduction to HKIX, there was insufficient time to cover it, so his slides were instead made available online.
- Fakrul Alam presented on ‘Community tools to fight against DDoS’, where he outlined tools such as Bogon Filters, Flow Sonar, and UTRS (Unwanted Traffic Removal Service) to help mitigate attacks.
- Following the event, Che-Hoo and Fakrul met with the host and APNIC Members, both locally and regionally, to discuss various topics including support for NOGs and improving root server connectivity in Thailand.
