Last month we had the honor of hosting the first session of Networking Field Day 10. For the unitiated, the Tech Field Day folks bring independent bloggers, speakers, and podcasters to vendors for deep-dives. The 12 delegates of #NFD10 stopped by to discuss Cisco’s approach to SD-WAN. This was a great session as SD-WAN, while pretty hot right now, is also a pretty great solution to branch automation.
Jeff Reed, VP of Network Transformation, kicked off Networking Field Day 10 to introduce Cisco’s approach to Software Defined WAN (SD-WAN) for the Enterprises to the 12 delegates who attended.
Next, Sumanth Kakaraparthi, Product Manager for Platform Routing and Pedro Leonardo, Product Manager in Network Transformation for Enterprise Management and Controller started the sessions by explaining the Zero Touch Deployment model.

This week at CiscoLive Orlando, Cisco made two announcements around Enterprise Routing – Open EIGRP and EIGRP OTP. Originally announced at CiscoLive London, EIGRP has been opened to the community as an IETF Informational Draft “Open EIGRP”, Open EIGRP provides vendors with technical information on EIGRP and the accumulation of 20 years of development and enhancements. With the publishing of this IETF Draft, vendors can now integrate EIGRP into their appliances and interop with Cisco.
On Tuesday, Cisco also announced a new innovation in Enterprise Routing; “EIGRP Over the Top” (or simply OTP).
This morning we have a very special treat – Networking Field Day 4 is stopping by Cisco!
Last night I got to meet a bunch of the delegates (fancy name for bloggers) and am pretty excited as they’re a great group of Field Day veterans and new folks. I think the lineup of talks will be fun for them, and I’m hoping we’ll get a good, solid discussion going. Plus, one of the delegates has agreed to wear a kilt.
