    • Packet Buffers: Best Practices for A Buff Network
      Packet Buffers: Best Practices for A Buff Network JR Rivers, Cumulus Networks Co-founder and CTO Recorded: May 14 2017 3:40 pm UTC 75 mins
    • 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.

      11ax Wi-Fi What you need to know for 2018 Nathanial Moore, CWNE Systems Engineer, UK Aerohive Networks Recorded: Jul 25 2018 10:00 am UTC 35 mins
    • Are you ready for 802.11ax? This fast approaching IEEE standard addresses some of today’s biggest high density and performance challenges – increasing capacity by up to 4x; improving spectral efficiency to benefit both 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands in a variety of environments.

      Today’s 802.11ac standard already presents many fantastic capabilities for capacity and performance. So if you’re reviewing your network, which is right for you: 11ac or 11ax? And what will be the benefits of upgrading from 11ac?

      Join us for this 30 minute quick-hit, reviewing 11ax’s most important components:

      • PHY and MAC layer enhancements for better traffic management
      and efficiency
      • Downlink & uplink OFDMA; 8 x 8 MU-MIMO; Spatial re-use
      • Considerations for clients and wider network enhancements

    • Network Command Line Utility: A command line to improve network automation
      Network Command Line Utility: A command line to improve network automation Dinesh Dutt, Cumulus Networks Chief Scientist Recorded: Apr 1 2017 5:15 pm UTC 79 mins
    • 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

    • Elevate Your Network Security with NSX SD-WAN and Palo Alto Networks
      Elevate Your Network Security with NSX SD-WAN and Palo Alto Networks Brian Tokuyoshi, Sr. Product Marketing Manager, Palo Alto Networks & Nitin Kumar, Product Line Manager, VeloCloud Recorded: Sep 26 2018 5:00 pm UTC 52 mins
    • With an ever-increasing amount of enterprise traffic driven by Public Cloud SaaS applications, security has never been more complex. Direct access of applications over the internet, while inexpensive, does not provide Enterprise-grade performance and simultaneously leaves the network susceptible to attacks. Furthermore, the traditional approach to branch connectivity involves a convoluted backhaul of traffic to a centralized firewall located in the corporate HQ or Data Center before accessing the internet.

      Why does it need to be this complicated? The short answer… it doesn’t.

      Join this webinar for an overview — and a deep dive — of an integrated approach to wide area networking that combines best-of-breed security and SD-WAN solutions. Experts from Palo Alto Networks and VeloCloud, now part of VMware, will discuss next generation Enterprise WAN and outline an approach that makes it simple to assure the performance and security of applications, dramatically simplify deployments with various options, and cut costs.

    • Network Automation: Tools, Challenges and Solutions
      Network Automation: Tools, Challenges and Solutions Dinesh Dutt, Cumulus Networks Chief Scientist Recorded: Apr 12 2017 12:30 am UTC 88 mins
    • 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.

    • New Directions in Cloud Plumbing
      New Directions in Cloud Plumbing Russ White, Network Architect, LinkedIn Recorded: Sep 18 2018 9:00 pm UTC 63 mins
    • The cloud is not only "other people's computers," it is also "other people's networks." In fact, the network behind the cloud is just as important as the compute and storage resources it interconnects with. To support the massive scale required, cloud network operators focus on a very narrow range of network topologies, typically some form of the spine-and-leaf, and often build highly customized control planes.

      This session will focus on changes taking place in the world of cloud networking; specifically, the disaggregation of software from hardware, and the movement from BGP as the "standard" control plane to the use of link state protocols combined with Software Defined Networking (SDN) principles.

      About the presenter:
      Russ White began working with computers in the mid-1980's, and computer networks in 1990. He has experience in designing, deploying, breaking, and troubleshooting large scale networks, and is a strong communicator from the white board to the board room. Across that time, he has co-authored more than forty software patents, participated in the development of several Internet standards, helped develop the CCDE and the CCAr, and worked in Internet governance with the Internet Society. Russ has a background covering a broad spectrum of topics, including radio frequency engineering and graphic design, and is an active student of philosophy and culture.

      Russ is a co-host at the Network Collective, serves on the Routing Area Directorate at the IETF, co-chairs the BABEL working group, serves on the Technical Services Council/as a maintainer on the open source FR Routing project, and serves on the Linux Foundation (Networking) board. His most recent works are Computer Networking Problems and Solutions, The Art of Network Architecture, Navigating Network Complexity, and the Intermediate System to Intermediate System LiveLesson.
