Take a Network Break! Episode 66 dives into a couple of SD-WAN deals: an acquisition and a startup’s new customer. We also look at a couple of IoT announcements, including a Cisco partnership for remote lighting, and a new IoT server from HPE.
We speculate on whether F5 might be a takeover target, and dig into market data on global switching and routing sales (switches are up, routers flat).
Comcast attempts a Jedi mind trick by telling us that data caps are not data caps, and China invests billions of dollars to become a chip manufacturing powerhouse.
Talari’s been making WANs better for eight years now, creating a THINKING SD-WAN that adapts in real time to changing conditions. Its patented approach puts intelligence in every packet and at every endpoint. It identifies packet loss, jitter, and the failure of any one network path, then uses all of the network’s capacity to reroute packets and keep your data flowing. Mission-critical apps like VoIP and VDI take priority and always deliver, while less time-sensitive traffic falls in line. For more details listen to the Packet Pushers’ conversation with John Dickey, Talari’s Co-Founder and CTO, or check them out at talari.com.
