Building and operating large-scale networks hosting applications that serve billions of people worldwide often present complex engineering challenges to solve. At the recently held Networking@Scale 2022 virtual conference hosted by Meta on Jun 01 and Jun 02, 2022, engineers from Cloudflare, Fastly, Google, Microsoft Azure, Netflix, and Meta presented talks and engaged in live panel discussions with the audience around these challenges.
The conference was held virtually and saw a great turnout of attendees from industry and academia alike. This summer edition of Networking@Scale was themed around Transport Innovation – more specifically, on how to efficiently and quickly move data across the network, addressing congestion, performance, reliability, and extensibility through innovations in the transport layer. The conference was spread across two days and focused on transport protocols such as QUIC, TCP, and RDMA.
Day 1 of the conference focused on the value proposition and innovations in using the QUIC protocol in the Internet architecture and specific use-case studies demonstrating high performance and lower latencies achieved with QUIC at the CDN, Edge, and Backbone layers.
Day 2 pivoted to the challenges in Datacenter (DC) and WANs around networking and how innovations in TCP and other protocols (e.g.RoCE) help tackle these.
The Q&A sessions saw great engagement from the audience and presenters where they discussed topics such as QUIC’s agility, QUIC/HTTP3 adoption on the web both on browsers and servers. On the TCP side, there were discussions around BPF tuning vs in-kernel changes, deploying changes at scale, RoCE security and congestion management etc.

Project maintainers are responsible for clarifying the standards of acceptable behavior and are expected to take appropriate and fair corrective action in response to any instances of unacceptable behavior.
Project maintainers have the right and responsibility to remove, edit, or reject comments, commits, code, wiki edits, issues, and other contributions that are not aligned to this Code of Conduct, or to ban temporarily or permanently any contributor for other behaviors that they deem inappropriate, threatening, offensive, or harmful.
This Code of Conduct applies within all project spaces, and it also applies when an individual is representing the project or its community in public spaces. Examples of representing a project or community include using an official project e-mail address, posting via an official social media account, or acting as an appointed representative at an online or offline event. Representation of a project may be further defined and clarified by project maintainers.
This Code of Conduct also applies outside the project spaces when there is a reasonable belief that an individual's behavior may have a negative impact on the project or its community.
Instances of abusive, harassing, or otherwise unacceptable behavior may be reported by contacting the project team at firstname.lastname@example.org. All complaints will be reviewed and investigated and will result in a response that is deemed necessary and appropriate to the circumstances. The project team is obligated to maintain confidentiality with regard to the reporter of an incident. Further details of specific enforcement policies may be posted separately.
Project maintainers who do not follow or enforce the Code of Conduct in good faith may face temporary or permanent repercussions as determined by other members of the project’s leadership.
