At the root of John Boyd’s “OODA loop” methodology, there is the notion that we need to acknowledge and work with levels of “uncertainty”—gaps that result when applying established models to new and changing contexts[i]. Unfortunately, the networking community—desperate for operational stability—largely ignores these mismatches, designing network and security architectures as if they can dictate how applications are deployed.

 

Nothing is further from the truth.

At TM Forum Live! IBM, Comptel and Juniper Networks will showcase an integrated platform to help Communication Service Providers (CSP) capture value in the telco cloud ecosystem. The focus of this effort is to enable CSPs to make the shift towards cloud based infrastructures, leveraging the latest in network, compute and storage function virtualization. Before we get there, let’s discuss the challenges and methods used to address this transformation

“You cannot always wait for the perfect time, sometimes you must dare to jump…”

- Anonymous Jumper

 

Isn’t that always the challenge with strategic initiatives? Where and when do I dare to start? What if I fail? There’s so much unknown. Another lens - instead of the impossibilities, what about the possibilities?

EVPN as a stepping stone for SDN

by Juniper Employee ‎09-20-2015 03:36 PM - edited ‎09-21-2015 08:52 AM

This blog describes the story of a customer whose data center network is growing very fast, to the point that their traditional access-aggregation-core layer 2 architecture starts crumbling.  It explains how EVPN-VXLAN solves the scaling issues by introducing a layer 3 IP fabric without having to give up layer 2 services for the applications (thus avoiding a rewrite of the application).

New Year, New Mindset

Thomas Watson, the founder of IBM, has this famous quote: “The way to succeed is to double your failure rate”. Find out how virtualization technologies can help service providers fail fast, and succeed faster.

In the 35+ years I've been in the networking business there is one law that has held true for that entire time: Simple and open beats complex and proprietary. Another way of saying this is that customers want choice, they do not want to be boxed-in. And the law of "Don't Box Me In" is getting even stronger as networking moves away from hardware "boxes" into the era of virtualization and software-defined everything.

Network Services, at Your Fingertip

iPhone is no doubt one of the most successful products in the history of technology. Aside from other factors, the App Store provided a key differentiator that made it hard for other smartphone vendors to replicate. In July 2009, within a year of its launch, 1.5 billion applications (apps) for the Apple iPhone had been sold from its App Store.

 

Ultimately, the App Store provided a platform for new innovations in mobile software application. Beyond the smartphone hardware itself, the broad selection of apps is a major reason why consumers want the iPhone, and the sticky factor for consumers to keep buying iPhones.

 

Can the iPhone App Store success be replicated by telecom service providers? With a little bit of help from modern networking technologies, it is possible!
