Take a Network Break!
We start with an FU from Daniel Dib who adds a little color to our coverage of Cisco’s SD-WAN Cloud onRamp for CoLocation.
In the news, it appears the entire Internet is borken as Microsoft, Cisco, and Intel get hit by critical vulnerabilities. ARIN revokes almost three quarters of a million IPv4 addresses from fraudsters, and Arista launches a new 400G switch.
Extreme adds AI to IoT security, the US government takes more shots at Huawei and China, and VMware buys Bitnami for application packaging.
Cisco Meraki notches 2 million networks (whatever it means by “networks”), and Cisco reports strong Q3 earnings.
We’re also sponsored by TeleGeography, a telecommunications market research firm. TeleGeography wants you to know about its WAN Cost Benchmark.
