Leveraging IPv6 Routing For Resource Reachability

Jamie Panagos, Sr. Director, Operations Engineering at Charter Communications

To date, content delivery networks (CDNs) have largely been deployed as overlay systems exploiting DNS or redirects to guide clients to the best cache. While this has served the industry well, if forecasted traffic volumes are accurate, delivery systems will increasingly need to adapt and integrate into the network rather than simply riding on top of it.

In his session at NGINX Conf 2018, Jamie discusses a concept which attempts to converge resources and routing to provide more efficient delivery, more control of resource reachability, and easier sharing of delivery infrastructure.
