Troubleshooting Lessons Learned

Pete Welcher shares his lessons in troubleshooting, in this case it was the dreaded complaint of “the Wi-Fi is bad”. He breaks down how he approached two different scenarios with different companies. Both ended up using Netbeez’s client-side monitoring solution to help get regular and accurate upload and download speeds, which saved both human time, and increased accuracy. Make sure to checkout Pete’s post for an in-depth look into his techniques.


To SD-WAN or Not to SD-WAN — and How?

Pete Welcher has been seeing a lot of competing SD-WAN solutions, including a lot from presentations at past Networking Field Day events. He runs down how to determine if these solutions are ideal for your operations. First, if you’re heavily investing in a lot of Cisco routers, just use IWAN. But for organizations with equipment coming to end of life or need ease of deployment without much more needed than routing and QoS, SD-WAN is worth a look. Make sure to read Pete’s piece for all the details.


Moving Ones & Zeros: Current Trends in DC Networking

Ryan Booth’s DeLorean takes him back to the Cumulus Networks presentation from Networking Field Day in February 2015. He then goes into detail on using Cumulus Linux as a routing platform. Setup is actually closer to a Debian server than a standard network switch. The overall thrust is to take tools already in use by application and server groups to make automating network deployment dramatically easier. This is a wonderfully detailed how-to article and gives the reader all they need to know to get started networking with Cumulus Linux.
