Today on Heavy Networking we go deep on segment routing. Segment routing is way to encode into a packet the path it should take through the network. And why would you want to do that? Lots of reasons, including traffic engineering and service chaining.
Sound scary? Step all over everything you think you know about dynamic routing and path selection?
To make sure you leave this podcast with a head full of segment routing knowledge is our guest, Ron Bonica, Distinguished Engineer at Juniper Networks, our sponsor for today’s detailed look into SR, SRv6, SRv6+, path computation, recovering from failure states, and more
- An overview of segment routing and its use cases
- Ingress, transit, and egress nodes in an SR domain
- Key differences among segment routing options, including SR-MPLS, SRv6, and SRv6+
- How segment routing works with nodes that aren’t in an SR domain
- Hardware and software requirements to use segment routing
This is deep, detailed show, so grab a stack of virtual donuts and a pot of coffee, and let’s go down the rabbit hole. And if you want even more information, check out the list of resources below.
