We have two great talks lined up with some Q&A time after each talk, we'll also have a short break between talks. After the 2nd talk and Q&A, everyone is welcome to stay and socialise in the pub.
Talk 1: Building Hybrid Networking on AWS
Hybrid connectivity enables organizations to run workloads that span AWS and on-premises environments without compromising performance. The AWS approach to hybrid connectivity provides customers with the services needed to connect their networks to AWS resources, run AWS services wherever they need them, and add the capabilities of AWS global infrastructure to their networks. In this session, you will learn how to use AWS services such as Site-to-Site VPN, Direct Connect, and Client VPN, plus the new DX SiteLink and Cloud WAN services, to architect hybrid networks that will improve the connectivity of your services - whether they running in the cloud or on-premises.
Presenter: Nicola Arnoldi
Talk 2: Layer 2 Services and MEF
Challenges and benefits of going through MEF Certification for a wholesale ISP, testing platforms and vendors.
Presenter: Tristan Bendall
The first talk will begin at 7pm sharp so please turn up from 6.30pm onward to ensure a prompt start for the evening.
Due to the ongoing pandemic situation, we will have the windows open so consider bringing a good jumper if it’s a cool evening! Also please do not attend if you are showing signs of COVID19, we meet every month so there will be another chance for us to catch-up.
* If you're attending NetLdn please note that the venue is a pub which serves alcohol. There is no expectation that you must drink alcohol, non-alcoholic drinks are also available. If you're under 18 please let us know, we will need to inform the landlord. If you're crazy enough to drive in London, please drink responsibly. We're hoping you're a thirsty bunch so we can get the venue hire fee waived; for this reason, we ask that you don't bring your own drink to the venue.
