Packet buffer memory is among the oldest topics in networking, and yet it never seems to fade in popularity. Starting from the days of buffers sized by the bandwidth delay product to what is now called "buffer bloat", from the days of 10Mbps to 100Gbps, the discussion around how deep should the buffers be never ceases to evoke opinionated responses.
In this webinar we are joined by JR Rivers, co-founder and CTO of Cumulus Networks, who has designed many ultra-successful switching chips, switch products, and compute platforms, to discuss the innards of buffering. This webinar will cover data path theory, tools to evaluate network data path behavior, and the configuration variations that affect application visible outcomes.
Automation. Everyone wants it, even if not every one can readily switch to it. Manual workflows are still quite common in today's networks and while Linux supports manual workflows, some traditional network operators find administering networks with the standard Linux network commands challenging.
With NCLU, Cumulus Linux makes manual workflows first class citizens in the network operator toolchain. Designed to please both Linux admins and traditional network operators, the primary goal of NCLU is to ease and simply the manual operation of networks.
Watch this webinar and learn:
- Why command line still matters, and what the characteristics of a good CLI look like
- How to simplify Linux network administration with NCLU
- How traditional network operators can start to reap the benefits of Linux networking
- Some everyday examples of network administration using NCLU

As cloud, containers, microservices and other technologies become more and more mainstream, software must be architected in new ways to address these smaller components.
All of this is impacting the the data center network, and we will talk through some of the ways that organizations can address the changes in the ever more complex data center. If you are an I&O professional, watch this webinar to see how you can simplify deployment and maintenance in the modern data center.
Network automation may seem passe now; seemingly everyone knows how to do it. You want to join the ranks, but where to begin? And what does the journey look like? In this 2 part webinar, we'll go from soup to nuts on automation of network configuration, from downloading Ansible to doing continuous integration and continuous development with network operations. Along the way, we'll demonstrate how Cumulus Linux simplifies much of automation thanks to simplifications and innovations in configuration from CLAG (Chassis Link Aggregation) to OSPF (Open Shortest Path First) and BGP (Border Gateway Protocol).
Even if you think you know BGP unnumbered, come see how we've simplified it even further. We'll walk through configuring L2 networks, L3 networks, and VxLAN overlays.
In episode 2 of our series on automating network configuration, we will dive deeper into the how-to's for managing an automated network in production. We'll walk you through the model of CI/CD (Continuous Integration / Continuous Delivery), including deploying changes with more confidence than you could before. We'll show you how Cumulus Linux simplifies much of automation thanks to simplifications and innovations in configuration from CLAG to Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) and Border Gateway Protocol (BGP). Come prepared for a lively webinar with real-time demos and active audience participation.Read more >

Software-defined networking has come onto the scene and changed the way we think about moving packets throughout a network. But it has also morphed into multiple definitions and approaches, driven by both vendors and enterprise customers. But how does security fit into this picture? This talk will discuss the convergence of SDN and security and will try to make sense of them both.
1: Understand all types of SDN.
2: Understand SDN and security.
3: Understand how a secure SDN makes a network safer.

Network administrators and engineers function as “human middleware” for their monitoring tools, according to Shamus McGillicuddy, Senior Analyst at EMA Research. Skilled humans still need to do much of the heavy lifting in terms of analyzing data.
That’s the problem holding back many network operations teams from achieving greater productivity. But there’s hope! EMA recently bestowed its Innovator’s Award on ExtraHop’s Addy machine learning offering for its ability to remove much of the burden from human operators. Join this webinar to learn how machine learning can help under-resourced network teams do more with less.
