One of the known issue for anyone preparing for a Cisco exam is that the solutions available today don’t support all the needed features. Cisco VIRL supports L2 switching out of the box, whereas GNS3 does not. GNS3 supports the configuration of serial interfaces on routers whereas Cisco VIRL does not. For someone starting out in this…
This Week On The Internet looks at an AI Barbie, the effect of mobile devices on young kids, how to fight surveillance, and funny cooking advice.
This last week I received an email from a friend asking about scaling. The situation is this: a particular company has well over 100 EIGRP routers on a single L2 service from a provider. Will this scale? What’s more interesting than simply asking about scale, though, is to ask the “why” question — no matter…
Cisco’s new WLAN product, Mobility Express, targets customers who want simple deployment, and gives Cisco a weapon against HP/Aruba.
A couple of recent analyst reports tout significant growth in the information security market. But More security spending on products doesn’t necessarily mean better outcomes for customers.
A variety of open networking projects are driving innovation, from FRR to OvS & more. This cheat sheet tracks who’s doing what at 12 projects, and provides links to more resources.
From pumpkin spice on Dune to WiFi allergies to a giant robot fight and more, here’s some interesting stories that crossed my browser this week.
Brocade has launched version 2.0 of its SDN Controller, a commercial distribution of OpenDaylight, the open source project. The company also announced two applications for topology visualization and managing flows.
This post will introduce a new type of DMVPN – FlexVPN, unofficially called “DMVPN phase 4” . We will go through the basic building blocks of Cisco FlexVPN DMVPN and some of the design best practices for a typical enterprise WAN network.
From an animated AT-AT to the need for punchable robots to a post-Internet utopia, here’s a selection of strange and interesting items coughed up online.
In ending this series — which I hope has been useful for Packet Pusher’s readers to get a solid survey of the entire Internet’s operational structure — we’ll talk about one of the “forgotten” groups of people helping to build and maintain the ‘net as we know it. Without this organization the Internet probably simply…
Big Switch takes an innovative approach to pricing a hardware/software SDN product that cuts the customer’s capital expenditure in half and takes advantage of usage-based billing.
Can there be a market category for software defined network security ? If so, Fortinet is going after it.
There’s been a whole heap (programming pun intended) of blogs around automation and virtualisation over the last few years, with some rather good ones of late centred around the now classic mix of VirtualBox, Vagrant and Ansible*|**. I’m particularly enjoying the Hey, I can DevOPS my Network too! series by Larry Smith Jr. at the moment. I may…
For the time being, we are discontinuing Reader.PacketPushers.net. We didn’t advertise it heavily in the past. Reader saw some traffic, but not a lot. And…we were never entirely happy with the result we got out of it. Our plan is to reboot Reader at some point in the future with new software. We still think it’s a good idea, but we want to get a more polished look and feel out of it first.
I am very pleased to announce that last week I did pass the CCIE Lab Exam in Routing & Switching version 5 and am now CCIE #50038 To explain the title of this post the method I chose to pass the CCIE is not best practice and it took me quite a few attempts across…
If you have wondered why there isn’t a open-source project for IP routing then you will be pleased to know that CloudRouter has announced that it is production ready.
I’m conflicted about the expansion of tech into education. Is another screen really going to enhance learning, or just make kids increasingly distracted?
Arista’s EOS is a single binary image that runs on all its products. This lets Arista do interesting things with APIs and an SDK, but it creates potential challenges too.
