Packet Pushers - Heavy Networking
Summary: Join the Packet Pushers for weekly (or more!) conversations about data networking. Continuous professional development. Architecture and design, software defined, cloud, routing, switching, security, wireless, campus, enterprise, and more. Technical discussions with vendors about their products, deep dialog with real people who make networks work.
If you are deploying an enterprise QoS scheme, wireless QoS matters to you. On today's episode, we go through the basics of wireless QoS, covering some of the standards, terminology, and thinking required to get your head around how we can prioritize packets over a shared medium. Our guest is Ryan Adzima.
Today's Heavy Networking welcomes back sponsor Arrcus to discuss the latest advancements in its ArcOS NOS, including support for Jericho2 ASICs, the new ArcIQ Analytics platform, and the vote of confidence from investors in the form of a $30 million funding round. Our guests are Keyur Patel, CTO and founder; and Murali Gandluru, VP of Product Management.
Packet Pushers host Greg Ferro found slides from a presentation he gave in 1999, and many of the points he raised are still relevant 20 years on. Why does networking take so long to change? The Packet Pushers and guests Jeremy Filliben, a CCDE trainer; and Emma Cardinal-Richards, a senior network architect; share their insights and opinions.
QoS is hard to monitor. How do you know you’ve gotten it right? If it’s not working the way you want, how can you tell? To help us form a network design strategy to cope with these QoS gotchas is Peter Welcher, a network architect at NetCraftsmen.
Building a business case for SD-WAN involves more than just anticipating savings by moving from private circuits to business broadband connections. On today's Heavy Networking, we look at how to tie SD-WAN capabilities to business benefits, what to consider when developing a business case, how measure ROI, and more with guest Jason Gintert.
On today's Heavy Networking we look at one organization's journey to SDN, including pitfalls, triumphs, and lessons learned. Guest Sal Rannazzisi, principal network architect at a global pharmaceuticals company, shares details on dealing with vendors, finding and training engineers, developing internal processes, and more.
Open Systems offers an integrated solution that combines a secure cloud access security broker with cloud integrated SD-WAN and a DevOps mentality that gives you a new way to design your increasingly complex perimeter security. Moritz Mann, Head of Product Management, joins us from Open Systems for our security chat.
Harry Quackenboss is long time veteran of infrastructure technology. In networking he was a VP of Sales of Crescendo for FDDI networking (to the desktop) which was acquired by Cisco. He later founded Woven Systems as a high speed Ethernet company of the time and more lately CEO of cPlane, a SDN company now relaunched […]
Today's Heavy Networking is a conversation with Tom Hollingsworth that ranges over a variety of provocative statements about the networking and technology industries, including "certifications are dead," "enterprise networking is dying," "BGP as a kitchen sink protocol is a bad idea," and more. Tom responds and discussions ensue.
400G Ethernet switches will ship by the end of 2019. We get under the hood of the fastest-ever version of Ethernet to find out how it works, the challenges of building the gear, differences between QSFP-DD and OSFP optics, and more. Our guests are Ray Nering and Lane Wigley of Cisco, the sponsor for today's podcast.
Today's Heavy Networking looks at the pros and cons of having a dedicated developer on an infrastructure team to create and maintain automation tools. Our guests are Brian Gleason and Jeremy Schulman.
On today’s Heavy Networking, we peer behind the curtain of Intent-Based Networking (IBN) with guest Phil Gervasi, who wrote a pair of white papers for the Packet Pushers' Ignition membership site. We discuss core concepts of IBN, including network abstraction, continuous validation, and automated remediation.
On today's Heavy Networking, sponsored by InterOptic, we explore how to extend the life of your cabling plant as you grow to 100G Ethernet. We get very nerdy on cabling, modules, lasers, and more with guests Robert Coenen, VP of Business Development at Interoptic; and Alex Latzko, lead network architect at Server Central Turing Group.
The Packet Pushers are relaunching our Ignition membership site with a premium-only model and a brand new course on practical QoS from Ethan Banks. On today's show we cover the details of the relaunch and share a sneak peek of the course.
You might have any number of software controllers in your infrastructure: one for wireless, one for SD-WAN, one in the data center, one for security, and so on. Would it be useful to federate these controllers? Can we expect the industry to produce a controller of controllers? Is this even a good idea? Today's Heavy Networking podcast ponders these questions with guest Rob Sherwood.
