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 […]

Everyday Automation with StackStorm and The New Extreme

When your name is an adjective, you’re just asking to be the brunt of many punishing puns. Based on the chatter during the second day of NFD17, that is certainly true for Extreme Networks. In fact, it’s actually hard to avoid. So let’s just dive right in to extreme automation, with Extreme Networks. I hope […]

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 […]

Hawt or Naught – NANOG 72

Last week I was in Atlanta with 879 of my friends for NANOG 72; the seventy second meeting of the North American Network Operators Group. NANOG is always a marathon of presentations, conversations, meals, and meetings. This one was no different – a whirlwind of learning, talking, speaking, and yes, even a bit of drinking. […]

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 […]

Network Disaggregation and SDN; A Simple Approach

Two of the hottest trends in networking today are network disaggregation and SDN. This is great for many reasons. It’s also confusing. The marketing hype makes it hard to understand either topic. SDN has become so vague that if you ask 10 experts what it means, you are likely to get 12 different answers. Network […]

See you at AWS re:Invent 2016!

While I find myself traveling far less than in years past (by design), I still get to poke my head out into the world of NOGs and Cons from time to time. One such opportunity is upon us this week; I’m packing up today for the 2016 edition of AWS re:Invent. Heralded as the “largest global […]

IETF 92: Shaping the Future of The New IP

For those unfamiliar, the IETF is an international community of network designers, operators, vendors, and researchers. It’s open to any interested individual, and most of its work is conducted over the Internet. The mission of the IETF is to: […]

IPv6 Security Myth #9: There Aren’t Any IPv6 Security Resources

We are approaching the end of this 10 part series on the most common IPv6 security myths. Now it’s time to turn our eyes away from security risks to focus a bit more on security resources. Today’s myth is actually one of the most harmful to those who hold it. If you believe that there […]
