Speaker Profiles and Presentation Abstracts

Bursting Made Easy - a Step by Step Guide to Setting up and Understanding Bursting

A brief overview of bandwidth management. What is bandwidth bursting? What can bursting help with? When it should NOT be used! Under the Hood: Understanding bandwidth management terminology and what each option does. Putting it all together in a mock scenario. Understanding whats happening second by second (for 16 seconds). Configuring busting in MikroTik RouterOS. How to test your configuration? How to trouble shoot unexpected results.

Accessing Geolocked content the easy way

Greg demonstrates a simple way to access Geolocked content using VPN tunnels and short scripts. This is great for switching where a media device is sourced from for accessing streaming video.

TheBrothersWISP Panel on Routing

This is an "Ask Me Anything" style panel focused on MikroTik routing and ancillary services. Have your questions ready, and we will do our best at answering them.

Analyzing RouterOS attack vectors and how to protect your network

The presentation is a deep-dive into attack vectors and attack techniques utilised by the large wave of attacks on MikroTik devices during the year 2018. We analyse the RouterOS exploits that utilized Vault7, WinBox client-side and WinBox server-side vulnerabilities. How were the attacks performed? What did the attackers do with the exploited routers? What was the impact and the spread of the attacks? Finally, we will talk about security, and how to protect yourself from exploits like these in the future by analyzing what should have been done by network administrators to prevent these exploits.

ISP Design: Using a full table route reflector to improve eBGP performance with MikroTik routers

This presentation will focus on how to design the eBGP border of an ISP using a full table route reflector to improve the performance of MIkroTik routers that are handling three or more full BGP global tables. The design will review the use of a full table route reflector to peer the border routers into and improve the speed of convergence as well as provide a way to scale the border of the network.

MikroTik, BGP and Internet Exchanges

What is an IX? Connecting to an IX Route Servers vs direct peering Full routes, vs IX routes, vs transit BGP tuning Local Pref Med MikroTik filter chains Communities and marking traffic Example configs on MikroTik BGP design ideas

Playing with RouterOS's VLANs

RouterOS allows you to work with VLANs in different ways. In software, in the switch chip and in bridges. This presentation will try to cover the pros/cons of these approaches and to show some tips.

Understanding throughput

Lets talk about MikroTik device throughput, how one should test it, what are the most common misunderstandings and how to improve the numbers
