Brief description of topic:

BIRD (http://bird.network.cz) is an open source implementation of a
routing daemon for Unix systems. It started as a school project at
Charles University in Prague, and it has been developed by CZ.NIC Labs
(http://labs.nic.cz) since 2009. Its design differs significantly from
the other routing daemons. The main features are powerful filtering
language, low resource consumption, multiple routing tables connected
by pipes. Because of those unique features BIRD is used in several
large peering centers (such as LINX, DE-CIX, PAIX, NIX.CZ) as a route
server. The presentation will cover BIRD's features, deployment as
well RFC compliance.
