I was recently flown out to Juniper HQ in Sunnyvale to record an on-camera interview about my two IPv6 Day One books for an episode of Junos Connect. Although the interview was completed in about 15 minutes after just 3 takes (two to be sure we had it, one due to someone walking through the shot), the trip was an action packed whirlwind tour thanks to Cathy Gadecki, who arranged the whole thing.
Some of the highlights included:
- Recording a couple IPv6 related podcasts with Dan Backman.
- Learning about the new mini-MX’ that Juniper is rolling out from John Lehane.
- A great chat about NAT444 and other transition technologies with Paul Abbott, who is also interviewed in the Junos Connect video.
- A fabulous sushi dinner with Mike (the speed reader) Bushong and team (Mike was actually around for all the meals, hmm).
- A very entertaining breakfast conversation with Patrick Ames, Becca Nitzan and a group of other Day One authors.
- And an amazing lunch on Wednesday with Alain Durand and David Ward (both ridiculously smart and super fun to talk to).
All around an amazing visit, dense with great conversations with super-smart folks.
Of course the final highlight was the primary purpose of the trip, recording the Junos Connect interview! A green room, professionally applied makeup, lights, cameras, full production crew… It was a great experience, in large part thanks to Kara Tsuboi and Julie Wider.
Without further adieu, here’s the IPv4 and IPv6 coexistence, NAT44 and IPv6 Books edition of Junos Connect:
