Internet traffic is set to explode to over a trillion gigabytes over the next five years according to the latest Visual Networking Index (VNI) data from Cisco. Traffic growth is fuelled by more devices and more video.
The gigabit Ethernet (GbE) switch market grew to $5.1 billion in the first quarter of 2012 with 10GbE clearly in the driver's seat. Wireless WLAN sales continue to impress but carrier spending on Ethernet is basically flat.
You don't have to go OpenFlow or nothing anymore as Brocade debuts a new hybrid approach that allows for selective use of OpenFlow alongside existing routers.
Alcatel-Lucent's new 32 terabit per second new core router can handle 160 ports of 100 gigabit Ethernet (GbE) as Alcatel-Lucent aims to take share from Cisco and Juniper.
Co-founder of networking startup Big Switch Networks explains what his company is doing with software defined networking (SDN) and open source makes working their offering more interoperable and easy to integrate.
You don't need your own lab to test and build an software defined networking (SDN) deployment anymore.
OpenFlow 1.3.0 provides a stable base for the next generation of software defined networking, IPv6, backbone tunneling, and QoS.
Cisco study finds most companies are adopting BYOD and that it yields positive benefits so long as a security and deployment challenges can be solved.
Indiana University's chief network architect explains how he uses OpenFlow to secure, load balance, and begin to exert some sort of unified control over a 120,000-person user network.
VMware doesn't just want your servers virtualized, they want software define your network but they are taking a different approach than Cisco, HP and others that have embraced OpenFlow.
HP's networking chief want to see the command line interface for networking gear go away. To that end, the company is rolling out virtual application networking module for its Intelligent Management Center.
Cisco grow revenues but the outlook for more of the same will be challenging as macroeconomic concerns take hold.
TRILL and shortest path bridging or SPB are emerging as challengers to spanning tree and none too soon for networking engineers wrestling cloud deployments into submission.
From just under $200 million in 2013 to $2 billion in 2016, software defined networking (SDN) is set to grow fast.
Avaya general manager details a path for 'cloud-easy.' Hint: It's about faster networks, identities, and focusing on apps and devices.
F5 is taking Google's SPDY protocol beyond browsers to enable faster Web connections regardless of end-point compatibility.
Everyone is talking about 'The Cloud' but fewer people than you might think have actually adopted it or are willing to take on the migration.
With dual-stack and tunneled deployment, getting visibility into IPv6 isn't easy but WildPackets changes all that -- at least on sub-40G networks.
Alcatel-Lucent bets on shortest path bridging (SPB). Believes most vendors will eventually agree. Alcatel-Lucent , Avaya, Brocade and Cisco back TRILL.
The new general manager of Interop aims for more community involvement as network virtualization, BYOD and software defined networking (SDN) take center stage in Sin City.
Riverbed and VMware have teamed up to optimize virtual machine traffic between dispersed data centers.
Network access control isn't the same as BYOD, or is it? Juniper's vision of policy enforcement across its hardware adds up to the same thing.
