Show 121 – Tweet My Meat – Network Field Day 4

In this Network Field Day episode of the Packet Pushers, we talk about the happenings of the first two days. Because there were so many of us in the room we used a room mike and the audio isn’t great but it’s definitely worth listening to.

Discussion Topics

  • Spirent and the upcoming Axon test unit and iTest Lab management product.
  • Brocade Fabric and VCS
  • Brocade & the OpenFlow and SDN
  • Openstack and Quantum

We also covered a few news topics.

    Very good show. It more interesting to hear the conversation AFTER the vendor “show” than to the “show” itself…

    Could you post a link to Axon test unit? I can’t google it.

      Hey Dan, the Axon hasn’t been launched yet, so no publicly available docs have been released as far as I know.
