Some of the topics covered are listed below.
Data Infrastructure Requirements:
Quality of Service and the Diffserv Model
Power over Ethernet
Proactive Voice Quality Management
Multimedia Communications using SIP:
Pure IP vs Hybrid approach
Practical implementation issues

Half-day Workshop: Sun: Identity Management
Presenters: David Bunker, Stuart Sim, and Dean Thompson
The workshop will be structured to provide a forum to
demonstrate and share our experience around 3 key areas of Identity Management.
1. Business focus for successful Identity Management
2. Enterprise focus to meet the dynamic requirements of provisioning,
workflow and password management within this complex, distributed authority
3. Federation focus to meet the growing needs of
inter-organisational interaction for academic, e-research and student services.
The workshop delivery team includes local and global
experts, contributing their individual expertise around the focus areas
mentioned above. The workshop will be highly interactive with attendees
contributing significantly their domain knowledge and experiences in relation
to the topic. The workshop will provide an opportunity to identify specific
sector functional requirements and develop strategies to meet these
The workshop intent is to:
1. Use the forum to explore, analyse and understand the
issue of Identity Management in the Higher Education sector in Australia.
2. Use the Sun Identity Management technologies to
demonstrate how these issues can be addressed from a technical perspective,
showcasing the business, enterprise and federation capabilities of the Sun
product suite, and
3. Develop artefacts in the form of templates and planning
documents that can be used to:
a) Better equip the project teams to
understand the business case for Identity Management,
b) Develop stakeholder analysis
techniques, project planning methods, and the mapping of business processes
within the institutes activity systems to build work flows, and
c) Match requirements to technology
The workshop vision is to build participative community with
our customer representatives and to share knowledge around the specific
challenges and issues for the Higher Education sector in Australia and the Sun's technologies in the Identity Management space.

Half-day Workshop: Cisco: Understanding Cisco Secure Architecture, Identity-Based Networking Services and Network Admission Control
Presenter: Lachlan Kidd, Systems Engineer, Cisco, Brisbane
This session covers the principles and design aspects of identity based networking using CiscoSecure ACS. The foundation for network identity services is 802.1x, which allows enterprise network administrators to explicitly control who and what gets on their network. Identity services are technology solutions that provide the tools to improve the security of physical and logical access to local area networks (LANs). Cisco IBNS incorporates all of the capabilities defined in the IEEE 802.1x standard, and provides enhancements and extensions for improving identity-based access control. Important extensions discussed include the ability to provide IBNS interoperation with IP Telephony, and the ability to track when and where anyone gets onto an enterprise network. Identity services are a requisite technology to Network Admission Control (NAC) which will also be discussed. The workshop will be run in two halves; the first half will focus on 802.1x based network admission control. The second half of the session will focus on alternative strategies and products around network admission control and remediation.
Lachlan Kidd is a System・s Engineer with Cisco Systems based in the Melbourne Enterprise team. Lachlan has been with Cisco for 18 months, focusing on higher education and specializing in security and network management. He has 7 years experience working for a number of systems integrators as a pre and post sales engineer and an R&D organization developing cryptographic products.

Half-day Workshop: BGP Techniques for Providers
Presenter: Philip Smith, Internet
Architectures Group, Cisco
The tutorial introduces service providers to some more
features and techniques to aid with operating their networks within the
Internet. After a recap of iBGP, eBGP and common attributes, the
tutorial will look at the various scaling techniques available, when to
use BGP instead of an IGP, and examine policy options available through
the use of local preference, MED and communities. The tutorial then
looks at common deployment scenarios as used in ISP networks, before
finishing off with some of the newer features available.
