Open Networking for Large Scale Networks

Open Networking for Large Scale Networks

Authors: ,
Genre: Technology
Most modern data centers are still using vendor-driven "future proof" routers and switches with offering lots of (often unnecessary) capabilities. To build large, however, it is often better to build simple—radically simple. This webinar will cover the design components involved in building a data center or cloud fabric using a single, disaggregated device—the way some hyperscale and web scale operators build their networks. The first live session of the webinar will consider the benefits of disaggregated switch, focusing on the components, sources, and challenges in using disaggregated hardware and software in data center fabrics. The second live session will focus on the topologies and design concepts used in large scale data center fabrics using a single switching device as a leaf, spine and superspine switch. More info →

Large Scale Network Design Livelessons

Large Scale Network Design Livelessons

Large Scale Network Design LiveLessons takes you through the concepts behind stable, scalable, elegant network design, including modularity, resilience, layering, and security principles. This livelesson will focus on traditional distributed link state, distance vector, and path vector routing protocols, as well as the basic principles of centralized control planes (such as OpenFlow). A special point will be made of sorting out the relationship between policy and reachability, and where they can best be managed in a large scale network. More info →

EIGRP for IP

EIGRP for IP

Cisco's EIGRP routing protocol is increasingly popular in enterprise IP networks -- but accurate, readable EIGRP documentation is scarce, so many EIGRP networks don't run nearly as well as they might. Now, a team of Cisco network engineers has distilled everything you need to know to implement, operate, and troubleshoot EIGRP successfully into one concise guide! The book begins with EIGRP theory, explaining the basic concepts, terminology, and mechanisms used by EIGRP to provide routing information More info →

IS-IS: Deployment in IP Networks

IS-IS: Deployment in IP Networks

IS-IS or Intermediate System to Intermediate System protocol is a routing protocol which has long been used by telephone networks and has recently surged in popularity among Internet Service Providers and in other large networks. The IS-IS protocol is used in conjunction with the Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) and offers flexibility in configuration and scalability for large and complex networks. IS-IS is covered in the CCIE (Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert) exam, and those preparing for that challenging exam will be interested in learning more about this protocol. Two Cisco experts here provide a beneficial mix of operational theory of the protocol and many practical examples and case studies. This new guide provides what network professionals need most: highly valuable configuration examples, combined with expert advice on deploying IS-IS in a real network. More info →

Navigating Network Complexity

Navigating Network Complexity

Network professionals have often been told that today’s modern control planes would simplify their networks. The opposite has happened: Technologies like SDN and NFV, although immensely valuable, are exacerbating complexity instead of solving it. Navigating Network Complexity is the first comprehensive guide to managing this complexity in both deployment and day-to-day operations. More info →
