Connecting devices in SPB networks

Now that we’ve talked about how a Shortest Path Bridging network topology is built, how the traffic gets from point A to point B, and how to create and deliver various services, it’s time to wrap up our little guide with the final part, explaining different ways of attac...
Multipathing in SPB networks

In the previous parts of our guide, we discussed how traffic is switched (or forwarded) through an SPB network. Today, we’re taking a quick look at the capability of load-sharing traffic over multiple paths between BEB nodes.
The network is the secret sauce in the next phase of AI/automation

AI is already part of our work, play, and day-to-day. But I see even more significant possibilities for the role of the network, AI, and automation in today’s enterprise.
Alternative network solutions you might want to consider

The die is cast! The decision to part ways with the status quo networking vendor has been made and now it’s time to look for some viable alternatives. Where to begin? Well, there’s no denying you’re visiting an Extreme Networks blog. But in the final part of this guide w...

The value of OpenRoaming for events and festivals

Gone are the days that travelling through Europe with a GSM cell phone was a hassle. Older people among us will surely remember crossing country borders and doing manual handovers on a cellphone in search of a mobile network. The seamless roaming that we now take for gra...
How to operate, administrate and manage an SPB network?

Any network is only as good as how easy it is to use, which more often than not means it’s well handled. Now that we’ve covered, among other things, how to build virtual networks and deliver more complex services, let’s take a look at how an SPB network is managed!
The 6 key attributes of the future networks: all science, no fiction!

When pondering the future, it’s tempting to resort to Clarke's three laws, especially the most widely cited one: “any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic”. But why make up sci-fi stories, when tomorrow is the natural extension of today? Get a...
