Today we have an excellent lineup of speakers and demos to kick off Networking Field Day 5 -- at Cisco. If you don’t know what Networking Field Day is (#NFD5 on Twitter) I basically call it “Bloggers on a Bus”. Stephen Foskett organizes these events where he gets 10 -- 15 networking bloggers to fly out to the bay area, they rent a mega bus (hence the name), and drive around to networking vendors over 2-3 days. The vendors do demos and presentations for the bloggers and there is usually a lively discussion*. These sessions are both live-streamed and then available to watch later at your leisure.
The lineup of topics today is: Data Center, Campus Switching, Enterprise Routing, Lunch (we like to throw steaks at the lions), more routing, more switching, and, finally, more Data Center! One new thing we’re doing today: In the morning, during the Enterprise Routing hour (11:30 -- 12:30) the team will do three demos and then we’ll vote on the one they want to hear more about.
Three demos in a one hour period may not seem too fast, but it’s actually pretty quick and a bit like speed dating. So to continue the analogy, during lunch, the bloggers vote on which topic they’d like to hear more about during the afternoon 1:30 -- 2:30 hour -- basically, who they’d like to ask out again. Below, we’ve got the speed dating contestants the overall agenda, and the livestream embedded. Read More »

They are looking for ways to do more with less infrastructure. These developments are accelerating resource centralization, with more and more critical assets moving into the enterprise headquarters and data center and this is creating a ripple effect on branch and remote offices. To meet regulatory compliance and cost-control requirements, many organizations are optimizing resources and reducing complexity in the branch office. Read More »
