  • Understanding Analyst Influence - Best Practices

    Screen Shot 2015-08-24 at 7.34.59 AM.png

    Analyst influence starts with an analyst’s research into a market (the buyers, sellers, drivers, macro economic factors, technology). A common form of research for an analyst is a vendor briefing. A briefing between an analyst and a vendor is a meeting in which vendors typically update analysts on new products, changing business models, mergers and acquisitions, or to start a new relationship. Find out how to make t
  • A Multi-Layer PCE using a Controller-to-Controller Interface

    Juniper Networks NorthStar ControllerThis Multi-Layer solution provides a packet-layer Path Computation Element(PCE)[1] (e.g. the NorthStar Controller) with an abstracted view of an underlying transport network to facilitate better or more optimal input for its [packet-layer PCE] applications, such as a path diversity applications. The abstracted view of the transport network will provide enough relevant information about an under-lying transport networ

  • To the crowd!

    Juniper Networks Tech Wiki“Groups are only smart when there is a balance between the information that everyone in the group shares and the information that each of the members of the group holds privately. It's the combination of all those pieces of independent information, some of them right, some of them wrong, that keeps the group wise.” –James Surowiecki, The Wisdom of Crowds

  • NorthStar Controller: adapting to real-time traffic volumes

    NorthStarlabI previously blogged about the benefits of having a central controller, in the shape of NorthStar, in the WAN. This time I’m going to show how NorthStar can react to the changing traffic levels on an LSP, and make modifications to the path accordingly if needed.

  • Building Multi tenant Data Centers with MPLS L3VPNs

    VirtualPrivateCloudHosting and cloud providers often look to scalable multi-tenant solutions to provide data center/compute/software services to their customers. Delivering these services requires scaling the network, providing isolation and security between customers, and being able to scale the services across data centers and geographies. 

  • Pumping Up with FEC

    HanzFranzCrop.jpgAre bit errors pummeling your router ports? Do your links look weak and flabby? You need to pump up your interfaces with FEC to achieve maximum pumpitide!


    Getting a basic understanding of FEC and its statistics will help you better understand the strength of your packet-optical interface. 

  • How Fast Can Your Business Evolve?

    Businesses today need to evolve rapidly to keep pace with a changing technology landscape. The data center, and the network that underpins it, are absolutely critical to enabling this business evolution. Read to find out how MetaFabric enables Instant Evolution.

  • Dynamic Power Management: Save power, save money.

    Power is money. So, saving power is important. The capacity of the line cards and the PICs/MICs are also constantly going up. This means that the overall power consumption of the newly built HW components are also increasing. Hence, building power efficient internet routers and HW components without compromising the scale, performance or functionality becomes important. This is what triggered me to create this blog s

  • SMF: A New Era for Data Centers?

    To support this growth, data center network architectures have evolved into scale-out designs, providing the plumbing to carry large amounts of latency-sensitive application traffic between racks. To improve bandwidth utilization, data centers are also moving from 10GbE to 40GbE to 100GbE, providing bigger pipes for transmitting application traffic at line rates. At the same time, more and more servers are being pack
