"Tungsten Fabric: Open Source Multi-Cloud Networking at Scale" @ PAzUG
Marquam

Tungsten Fabric (http://www.tungsten.io; formerly OpenContrail) is an open source, scalable and multi-cloud networking platform. Large enterprises and service providers are using it at massive production scale, and this meetup offers some tips, insights, and "don't go theres" from users with success stories (and some battle scars).

Come to this meetup to learn how users are deploying Tungsten Fabric for load balancing, HA, service chaining, analytics/orchestration and extending network to multi private / public clouds viz., AWS, Azure and Google.

Sanju Abraham will be our speaker. Sanju Abraham will deliver a project overview, showcase users and use cases. Then, we’ll dive into a demo of Kubernetes with Tungsten Fabric across onprem and AWS. We’ll demonstrate the ability to access Kubernetes and launch new containers, access the Tungsten Fabric UI, and observe the network state.

Tungsten Fabric is integrated with Kubernetes, VMware and OpenStack. It also supports public cloud deployments including AWS, Google and Azure. As both Enterprise and Telco IT architectures evolve, supporting multi-cloud environments is table stakes. This meetup will lay out how users can quickly get going with Tungsten Fabric, using software-driven networking and policy management to operate in a multi-cloud environment.

If you’re interested in networking for private clouds running OpenStack, Kubernetes, and VMware that also rely on services from AWS, Google and Azure, this meetup is for you!

Agenda:

5:00pm – Welcome time 5:30pm – Catering served 5:45pm – Group announcements and presentation 7:30pm – Wrap up.

Arbor Lodge Community Network Work Party
NodeArborLodge

We will be installing two SkyPilot devices (salvaged from the failed MetroFi project) to begin construction of an Arbor Lodge Community Network. The work on Saturday will be partly mechanical, physically mounting things with wrenches and ladders. It'll be partly digital, configuring the hardware settings. You can help with your hands and your heads. Bring cameras to help document what we do. It's your network: pitch in, help and learn!

Breaking Telco Monopoly Power through Public Ownership of Infrastructure
Northwest Academy

We have a problem with federal telecommunications policy in the US. The problem is that federal regulators have decided that, instead of regulating, they would rely on competition, but competition doesn't occur naturally because of the de facto requirement to build your own infrastructure in order to compete. This leaves users vulnerable to economic predation by the owners of the infrastructure.

Municipal Broadband PDX is a newly formed group that wants to solve this problem by creating a publicly-owned network infrastructure.

Russell Senior, a member of Municipal Broadband PDX and president of the Personal Telco Project, has been advocating for this type of infrastructure for years. He'll talk to us about federal policy, the monopolistic conditions that result, and the abuses those monopolistic conditions allow. He'll also explain how a public telecommunications utility solves these problems and what such a network might look like. There will be a short video included in the presentation.

Please join us for this informative presentation and discussion! We'll have snacks, and there will be an opportunity for networking afterwards. We hope to see you there!

Schedule: 6:00 PM: Doors 6:10 PM: Introductions and news 6:15 PM: Presentation 7:15 PM: Q&A 7:30 PM: Wrap up and networking

Bio: Russell Senior has been involved with the Personal Telco Project since 2005. The Personal Telco Project is a volunteer-based non-profit in Portland, founded in November 2000, that cares about network freedom. We operate public-access wifi networks in about about 60 locations around the area, where other volunteers have agreed to host them (you can too!). About 120,000 unique devices connect to our networks annually. About 5,000 of those are habitual users. If you connect to one of our networks, we don't know who you are, and we don't care what you do; we just ask you not to get the host of the network in trouble. Russell has been President of Personal Telco since 2009.

Russell has had a 20+ year career as a research programmer and data manager. He did a 13-month hitch at the National Science Foundation funded Science and Technology Center for Coastal Margin Observation and Prediction in 2015-2016 and got to work on ocean glider and fixed station measurement data. He did a week-long research cruise from Newport, Oregon to about Longview, Washington on the Columbia River, mapping the ship-to-ship and ship-to-shore mesh network they use, as well as participating in vertical profiling of the ocean, estuary and river waters. Russell has been using Linux since 1992 and has been doing embedded Linux programming, primarily OpenWrt/LEDE on wireless routers for over a decade and has helped develop wifi-based consumer products.

Personal Telco Monthly Meeting
Roots Organic Brewing [Out of business. *Sigh*]

Personal Telco recently received a couple SkyPilot SkyExtenders from the defunct MetroFi network for evaluation into whether some public/community value might be salvaged from them. In the process, we have dismantled one of them and learned some things. We'll have parts on display and a presentation on what we've learned and what remains to be learned.

Oh, and we'll have a Monthly Meeting as well. Come join the fun!

Personal Telco Project Annual Members Meeting
Lucky Labrador Brew Pub

Personal Telco is a collection of individuals, businesses, and organizations who share -- or plan to share -- internet connectivity rather than hoard it. It's also a group of volunteers who want this network to grow. We believe internet access should be available, fair, and uncensored. Personal Telco Project is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in PDX.

Whether you're a technology wizard or technically incompetent, volunteering with us is a great way to learn something new, enjoy teaching others, or use your skills to do something useful!

Our annual members meeting happens in place of the monthly meeting in July every year. This year, we are holding an election for two positions on the board of directors. Only members may vote. Check out the website for details.

Personal Telco Project Birthday and New Node Work Party
16475 SW Cynthia Street, Beaverton Oregon

Come celebrate Personal Telco's 10th birthday, but plugging in another node!

http://www.personaltelco.net/~russell/the-beginning.txt

Ten years ago to the day, Adam Shand, inspired by a slashdot article on Consume.net in London, wrote a message to the Portland Linux Users Group mailing list. That message got Personal Telco off the ground, and it's been flying (sometimes eating some pine cones) ever since. Come help it gain some more altitude and soar with you into the future!

We'll be plugging in a new rooftop node out in the depths of Beaverton at about 12 noon tomorrow. It shouldn't take too long, so don't be too late or we'll be all done when you get there.

Where: 16475 SW Cynthia Street, Beaverton OR 97007

When: Noon, Sunday, November 28, 2010 until 1 or 2pm

We are going to be attaching another of the Ubiquiti Bullet M2HP's to a 5 foot mast on the roof, attached to a WgtCab inside. Come join the fun, watch, learn, participate!

Ask not what free wifi can do for you, ask what you can do for free wifi!

The Personal Telco Project actually still exists! Did you know that? Well, we do. No, really. We do! We are still here, helping educate and support people sharing their internet connections, for the 10th consecutive year. Will Personal Telco continue to exist in the future? Ah, now that is kind of up to you all. It probably will continue to exist, but it could be so much more if people like you that care come along and help out. Are you going to be that person? Or are you going to trust, against your understanding of the laws of physics, that an organization like the Personal Telco Project can persist without the continuous injection of volunteer spirit and enthusiasm. Be that difference.
