Biography of instructor

Philip Smith Philip Smith has been working in the Internet industry since the early 1990s after catching the Internet bug in the mid 1980s while at University. He runs his own consulting company, PFS Internet Development.

Philip spends some of his time working for the Network Startup Resource Centre as a Senior Network Engineer and Training Coordinator, assisting with Network Operations Groups coordination, and providing network design assistance and training around the Pacific, South and South East Asia, the Middle East and Africa. .

He previously worked at APNIC as Learning and Development Director, where his team's responsibilities ranged from Training, APNIC Conferences and Events, Network Operations Group support, Technical Programmes such as IPv6 Deployment, Internet Exchange Points, and Rootname Server deployments, and the Information Society Innovation Fund grants programme. .

Before APNIC, he was a member of the Internet Infrastructure Group in CTO Consulting Engineering of Cisco Systems for more than thirteen years. He also served for 3 years on the Board of Trustees of the Internet Society. .

Prior to joining Cisco, he spent five years at PIPEX (incorporated into UUNET, and now part of Verizon's global ISP business), the UK's first commercial ISP, where he was Head of Network Engineering. As is common with startups in a rapidly growing marketplace, Philip gained deep experience in all of the engineering roles in an ISP, from support engineer, network operations, engineering, and development, before assuming responsibility for the entire UK network operation. He was one of the first engineers working in the commercial Internet in the UK, and he helped establish the LINX Internet Exchange Point in London and played a key role in building the modern Internet in Europe.

Andy Linton , Network Engineer and Trainer I have 30 years experience in Internet networking and I'm now doing the best Internet related job I've ever had working for the Network Startup Resource Center (NSRC) based at the University of Oregon.

My initial experience was as a researcher and programmer in the university sector at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne and Victoria University of Wellington and then as a network engineer with a number of Internet Service Providers in Australia and New Zealand such as AARNet, connect.com.au, Telecom NZ, Netlink, Telstra and CityLink. I spent time at Victoria University of Wellington from 2008-2014 teaching Network Engineering in the School of Engineering and Computer Science.

I'm based in New Zealand and was able to travel as a volunteer on a number of occasions to teach at the PacNOG Internet infrastructure computer workshops in Pacific countries such as Samoa, Vanuatu, Tonga, Fiji, Cook Islands, Solomon Islands, French Polynesia and American Samoa. This was where I met the folks from NSRC and when they offered me the chance to work with them it was an easy choice. I've since had the opportunity to travel to Asia, Africa and the Pacific helping local people build networks in places where resources are constrained, good advice is hard to come by and people are hungry for information and knowledge.

I am one of the 14 global Trusted Community Representatives who oversee the DNSSEC key ceremonies where the cryptographic digital keys used to secure the Internet DNS Root Zone are generated and securely stored.

I have served on the board of the Public Interest Registry which manages the .org domain, the council of InternetNZ and the board of New Zealand's Domain Name Commission which manages the .nz name space. I have also been a trustee of the NZ Network Operators' Group Trust. I have done work for APNIC, RIPE and ICANN building software systems, networks and undertaking structural reviews.

Viraphan Samadi , Training Manager obtained his Masters Degree in Industrial Engineering from Asian Institute of Technology (AIT) Thailand in 1999. At the same time he was working as IT officer at the same institute as a part time. He has over 18 years experience in internet and campus networking. Currently he work as training manger at intERLab/AIT. He also a team leader for IT service unit that look after IT related work at the institute.

Certificate of participation, training materials, lunch and refreshments will be provided.
