Take a Network Break! This week we spend some time on the demise of Net Neutrality regulation. We also analyze Juniper’s shifting of OpenContrail to the Linux Foundation, and examine Arista’s latest efforts to chase the router market.
Fortinet and Palo Alto Networks patch significant vulnerabilities, Let’s Encrypt plans new features for 2018, and researchers find a way to transmit ADSL over wet string. Seriously.
We’ve got links to all the stories we discuss just after our sponsor messages.
Also, this is our final Network Break episode for 2017. Thanks for spending your time with us, and we’ll see you in 2018!
