There are a number of ways to deal with IPv4 exhaust and IPv6 transition, including Carrier Grade NAT and stateful Dual Stack Lite. Cisco has added another method called Mapping of Address and Port (MAP) based on two IETF drafts currently in the process of standardization in draft-ietf-softwire-map (MAP-E) and draft-ietf-softwire-map-t (MAP-T). The real advantage with MAP is that it’s stateless and doesn’t require additional hardware as traffic grows. In fact, the MAP implementation on the Cisco ASR 1000 or ASR 9000 is just a software feature that can be enabled as needed. Read More »
It’s early April, which means it’s time to trek back to Las Vegas for the annual National Association of Broadcasters show (Booth A113, North Hall.) It’s a busy NAB for us this year, for lots of reasons – starting with the (way cool!) proof of concept demonstration we’re doing with Fox, to run live, uncompressed video over Ethernet.
That’s right: Video over Ethernet. Read More »
If you’re wondering what’s been facing video content creators like Fox and TV Globo, and how they view their future in these madcap days of TV everywhere, you’ll want to find a seat at the Las Vegas Convention Center room S222 at 12:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 9. That’s where a panel of experts on the matter is scheduled, featuring Fox and TV Globo, on the content creation side, and Verizon, for the distribution point of view.
On March 27 2013 I had the opportunity to participate at Cisco’s Women in Technology Forum with the theme, “Think Big, Play Big!”
The event was particularly poignant as it was held under the publicity from Sheryl Sandberg’s provocative book and movement “Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead”
Our CEO John Chambers kicked the Forum off with a welcome video. There were 41 Cisco execs at this venue and what can I say, an excellent start! Moving forward, I am excited that Cisco will be active globally in the celebration of Girls in ICT Day on April 25 2013. Further, I will have an opportunity to represent Cisco at the afternoon session, European Parliamentary hearing on Women in ICT.
The topic that I will address is most relevant today , “Women in ICT Careers, How to Explore Female Talent?” Read More »

T-Mobile USA has been one of the first carriers to widely deploy IPv6, seeking to overcome the lack of IPv4 addresses and to lay the foundation for their network for the Internet of Everything. However, one of the headaches they’ve faced is that some applications which work fine over IPv4 don’t play nicely with IPv6. That’s a real challenge for service providers, impacting their ability to migrate completely away from IPv4 and complicating their network operations.
T-Mobile helped Read More »
