Guest Post: Topology Independent – Loop-Free Alternates is a fast-reroute mechanism that leverages segment routing.
Stay-at-home measures have had observable impacts on Internet usage, as well as the development of IPv6.
Proper IPv6 address planning can make network management easier now and in the future.
Guest Post: An SRv6 extension enables up to six micro-instructions to be carried in each 16-byte instruction.
Guest Post: When dealing with BGP issues, the source is often several steps removed from the result of the problem, making it difficult to resolve.
Guest Post: As of 2019, Segment Routing over IPv6 data plane (SRv6) has been deployed in eight large-scale networks; supported more than 25 hardware implementations at line rate; and implemented in 11 open-source platforms/applications.
Guest Post: SRv6 enables you to code directly into each packet header where the traffic should be sent and how it should be treated.
What can network operators do to ensure they are contributing to a healthy Internet ecosystem?
Part two of Geoff’s BGP report for 2019 assesses whether the stability of the routing system is changing.
Geoff Huston analyses BGP routing table growth with some predictions for the size of the IPv4 and IPv6 BGP routing tables in the next five years.
