Reflecting On My First Cisco Live! Presentation

Well, I got to tick a big item off my list of goals last week. I successfully delivered a presentation at Cisco Live! in front of a large group of people. It didn't kill me and I didn't trip over anything and embarrass myself so no matter what, I have those two points to feel good about :-)

I Will Be Presenting For the First Time at CLUS 2017!

Well, it looks like another major item will get struck from my bucket list this year. I've been accepted to present at Cisco Live in Las Vegas this summer! 👊 This session is designed to walk through an enterprise network and look at how EIGRP can be engineered with purpose to best suit the needs of the different areas of the network. I will focus a lot on stability and scaling EIGRP and will show the audience how, where, and when to leverage common EIGRP features such as summarization, fast timers, BFD, and wide metrics.

BRKRST-2042 -- Highly Available Wide Area Network Design

Presented by: David Prall, Communications Architect, Cisco

For reference, David is the "father of IWAN".

This session was not what I was expecting. I was expecting design and architecture, but it was all about features in IOS and IOS-XE (eg, FHRPs, talked about routing protocol timers, PfRv3, BFD). I guess I need to pay more attention to the session code (RST == routing; ARC == architecture).
