Need a Technology Refresher? Introducing the Learn About Series
Feb 13, 2014
Show of hands: how many of you have been in a position where you need to refresh your basic understanding of a network technology, and you need to do it by tomorrow? Keep your hands up if you also need to understand how that technology is implemented in Juniper products.
You can put your hands down now, because the Information Experience (iX) team is proud to introduce the Learn About series. Each Learn About book is about the length of a white paper and is perfect for reviewing key concepts on the plane, on the train, or before that big meeting.
Virtual private networks (VPNs) are a technology that you know by name but not by what it does or how it works. Chances are, much of the time you spend on the Internet is probably spent using a Secure VPN – when you’re mobile and pinging the office, at home telecommuting, or using the cloud to connect to a data center. Juniper Networks is constantly striving to improve security, and making VPNs more reliable and secure is a top priority. Learn more about secure VPNs in this new Learn About book. Find it on Juniper.net, Amazon or iTunes.
Although IPv6 is intended to eventually replace IPv4, they are tightly mingled right now. Learn about the differences between these Internet protocols, including the addressing schemes and related protocols they use, in this new Learn About book. Find it on Juniper.net, Amazon andiTunes.
Ethernet networks are designed to drop packets during periods of congestion. But when network designers need to transport data across an Ethernet network without dropping packets, what can they do? They can pay an arm and a leg for a full 1:1 transport network with not a whiff of oversubscription, but who can afford that? Especially when there’s a better way. Learn more about Data Center Bridging, a method that uses the existing Ethernet infrastructure to guarantee lossless traffic delivery while also accommodating the usual best-effort traffic, in this new Learn About book. Find it on Juniper.net, Amazon and iTunes.
We are expanding the Learn About series with more books, infographics, and videos this year. We would love to know the technologies you want us to cover.
