Today’s Packet Pushers show is the latest in the Future of Networking series. Our guest is Pradeep Sindhu, founder and vice chairman of Juniper Networks.
Pradeep and the Packet Pushers talk about the potential end of Moore’s Law, and what impact this could have on the future of the industry at large, and networking in particular. The impetus for this conversation was a talk given by Pradeep at the Juniper NXTWORK conference in October 2016.
We start the conversation with an overview of transistors and their limits, and explore whether substances other than silicon could be used to manufacture chips.
We also talk about what the scaling limitations of silicon mean for computing and networking, whether applications will have to be re-architected, and whether silicon limits are a problem for the enterprise or just hyper-scale networks.
Today’s show is sponsored in part by ManageEngine and their OpManager network management software. OpManager integrates NetFlow monitoring, configuration management, firewall log management, IP address management and more in a single product.
