Join Cisco In Paris for Innovation Overload: MPLS SDN World Congress 2015, NFV& SDN 2015, and V6 World Congress 2015

ginaBy Gina Nienaber, Marketing Manager, SP Product and Solutions Marketing

It’s not too late to meet us in Paris for arguably one of the most important technology innovation shows in all of Europe during 2015. If you’re delivering or planning to offer cloud services from an Evolved Programmable Network, this is an event you don’t want to miss!

Industry technology leaders from every customer segment (enterprise, service provider, and web) and from leading technology vendors, including Cisco, a Platinum Sponsor this year, will participate and share information on MPLS, SDN, NFV and IPv6. Amazingly – this will all happen under one roof at the Hotel Marriott Rive Gauche. I’ll highlight some activities you don’t want to miss: Read More »

Cisco Fellow Mark Townsley: A Better Way to Deploy IPv6

We first talked about the Mapping of Address and Port (MAP) method to handle IPv4 exhaust and the transition to IPv6 last week. MAP is 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.   Read More »

A MAP to Easier, More Scalable IPv6 Deployments

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 »
