With the industry’s drive toward personal and wearable devices, soon people will be walking around with smart glasses, watches, phones, and even shoes. Not to mention they’ll be driving networked cars.
In the future, the task of securing your personal network will become increasingly difficult, which creates a new frontier to the threat landscape, one that is certainly personal. How are people expected to secure all these devices in their everyday personal network? How will we be protected while walking around a crowded shopping mall, admiring koalas at the zoo, or boogieing down in a busy nightclub? Who will combat this emerging threat?

Multiple readers have told me that it is difficult for them to understand and/or visualize the effects of latency on their HPC applications, particularly in modern NUMA (non-uniform memory access) and NUNA (non-uniform network access) environments.
Let’s breaks down the different levels of latency in a typical modern server and network computing environments.

Today Supervisor 720, the most widely deployed Catalyst 6500 Supervisor Engine, turns 10-years old.
Supervisor 720 was launched on March 31, 2003. It enabled me to be the first modular switch to support true 10G Ethernet . Supervisor 720 has brought extensive feature set such as MPLS, VPNs, and VSS over the last 10 years. If has also spread throughout the world over the last 10 years as the graphic (created using Tableau) shows. Read More »

For those who are on the learning curve on various aspects of network programmability, open networking and SDN (like we are), I’d like to invite you to the third in a series of educational webicasts on these topics. Brought under the umbrella of the Cisco Open Network Environment, this particular webcast focuses on “An introduction to onePK”, and will be broadcast on April 9th, 2013 at 9 AM PST. You can register here.
The Cisco Open Network Environment is all about bringing the network closer to applications. One way of doing that is by exposing network devices to applications through a rich set of APIs, that can help tap into the intelligence inherent in the hardware and ASICs as well as in the network operating systems. This is what onePK is all about – it’s a single platform kit that will span all of Cisco’s network infrastructure portfolio across Enterprise and Service Provider, exposing them to applications in a homogenous way, allowing app developers to tap into the power of the open network.
Cisco announced its Open Network Environment or Cisco ONE strategy on June 2012 and has been in execution mode since then. onePK happens to be a key proofpoint of this cross-architectural strategy.
Join me on this webcast, as I host Ayman Sayed, SVP of Cisco’s Network Operating Systems Group as the lead Cisco expert on this topic. We will also be joined by two of the development partners that are working on onePK trials including Brendon Whateley, Principal Solution Architect at Starview Inc., and Kamil Knotek, Chielf of R&D at Pramacomm Prague spol s.r.o, as well as some new demos.
If you missed the last webcast on “An Introduction to OpenFlow” with David Ward, CTO, Cisco Engineering and Chief Architect, we had a turnout from 84 countries and over 120+ questions answered by our question managers in a one-hour period. You can watch a reply of the webcast here.
