Certainty in Scale with Spectrum

Certainty, Scale, Spectrum…? Sweet alliteration Chris, but what are you trying to say? I’m glad you asked! Let’s sift backwards through the significantly soft sounds and see what sentience I can supply: Spectrum? No, not a band of colors – the Spectrum I’m talking about here is Silicon. Specifically, it’s the ASIC from Mellanox Technologies […]

Secure Multicloud Networking with Contrail

I recently had the privilege of hearing from the Juniper Networks Contrail product team at their offices in Sunnyvale. I was pleasantly surprised by the pragmatic and comprehensive approach they are taking in growing the product line. By the middle of this year (2018) there will be four distinct products; Contrail Networking, Contrail Security, Contrail […]

The API is the New CLI: Fact or Fiction?

The API is the new CLI.  If you’re a network engineer who pays attention to new technology, you’ve certainly heard some variation of this statement. But is it true?  Let’s start with the basics.  You know what a Command Line Interface (CLI) is; it’s how you talk to your switches and routers, and possibly many other devices […]

Exploring IPv6: A New IPv6 Tutorial

IPv6 is making its way into more and more networks. While the worlds largest AS’ were the first to feel the IPv4 crunch and start deploying IPv6, these days any network with any growth at all is forced to pay attention. This means that knowing at least the basics of IPv6 is becoming more and more of a […]

Juniper Tips from the JNCIA-Junos Study Guides

I’ve been a network engineer for well over a decade now. I’ve spent much of that time working on Juniper Networks devices. I even have a certification stating that I’m an expert. You might think that means I know it all by now. In fact it’s the opposite. As with anything, the more I learn, […]

IPv6 Security Myth #7: 96 More Bits, No Magic

This week’s myth is interesting because if we weren’t talking security it wouldn’t be a myth. Say what? The phrase “96 more bits, no magic” is basically a way of saying that IPv6 is just like IPv4, with longer addresses. From a pure routing and switching perspective, this is quite accurate. OSPF, IS-IS, and BGP […]
