• Fosdem 2015: a status update 03 March 2015, 04:01 AM As is our tradition by now a team of volunteers helped out with the network setup and operation of Free and Open-source Software Developers’ European Meeting (FOSDEM). The network was very similar to the one used last year and we wanted to report on the evolution of the traffic we measured. First the bad news: due to the increased use of IPv6 we have less accurate data. This is because while IPv4 uses a unique MAC address which we can use to count the number of clients, IPv6 uses ephemeral [...]
  • Cisco Live Milano……..IPv6, Spaghetti and Innovation 09 February 2015, 05:37 AM Last week was “that time of year again”: Cisco Live Europe !! One of my favourite weeks of the working year when (together with 11,000 other Networking Professionals from over 110 countries) I packed my bag and boarded a plane for what I always affectionately call the “Cisco Live Zoo“.  My major “personal stake” is as the “co Session Group Manager” for the IPv6.  This means that (together with my colleague Eric Vyncke) we are jointly responsible for all “IPv6 Content” which includes [...]
  • DevOps4Networks 11 November 2014, 06:07 AM In June, 2014, I attended the DevOps Days (un)Conference at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View. I reflected on that in this  blog post . At the end of that blog I said: “At DevOps days, I was kindly introduced, by Paul Peissner of CollabNet, to John Willis and Dave Nielsen, who helped organise the event. John and Dave are keen to do something, similar to DevOps Days, focused on the intersection with the networking world, enabled by emerging network programming [...]
  • Seeds of Change 24 October 2014, 12:08 PM While change is a hallmark of the IT industry, the actual levers for change are have actually remained fairly stable. Vendors were the initial agents of change largely because they were the only ones with the critical mass of smart people, R&D, manufacturing and service delivery to seed and then maintain a fledgeling industry—barriers to entry were a bit higher 30 years ago than they are today because the innovation was happening at the physical layer—we were still fighting over [...]
  • IPv6 in the Cisco Live World of Solutions 04 June 2014, 11:54 AM Just recently I wrote about the IPv6 enabled logo program here at the Cisco Live 2014 World of Solutions (WoS). It is now time to share some of the results! In what follows I will say that I did not have enough time to exhaustively visit every single demonstration in the WoS. My time there was confined to a short window on the Tuesday morning, where I went to investigate and locate the IPv6 enabled demos myself. Armed with my phone [...]
