2011 was a fascinating year for me: I changed jobs, got divorced and fell in love (twice). I moved from the suburbs to the city and started riding to work. I was interviewed by Juniper, took 16 trips to 13 different cities, joined TheHundred Denver, and was kicked out of Canada. I started speaking more, working less, and spending more time with my kids. I published my second book, co-authored my first Internet-Draft, filed my first patent application, and re-discovered my spirituality. Oh, and I turned 30…
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 […]
I was recently in Sunnyvale at Juniper HQ to record an interview for an IPv6 focused episode of Junos Connect (more on that laterhere). While there, Dan Backman and I recorded a couple of podcasts for distribution within Juniper. They’re not too overly boring so I figured I’d post them up here in case folks […]
Day One: Advanced IPv6 Configuration is a sequel to my first book, Day One: Exploring IPv6, and picks up right where it left off. Namely with BGP. In addition to a fairly thorough look at BGP (iBGP and eBGP / native IPv6 peering and sharing IPv6 routes over IPv4 peering), the book jumps into a few of the additional and often overlooked aspects of deploying an IPv6 network. This includes a look into topics and tools including VRRP, ICMPv6 rate limiting, CoS, IPv6 path MTU discovery, DHCPv6, zero hop-limit, Multicast Listener Discovery (MLD) and Duplicate Address Detection (DAD).
Day One: Exploring IPv6 is a primer on IPv6 in JUNOS, it is targeted towards readers who are new to IPv6 or new to JUNOS but have a solid networking background. “This guide is easy to follow and is an easy-to-digest tutorial on getting your feet wet in IPv6.”
The annual Rocky Mountain IPv6 Summit (RMv6 Summit) put on by the Rocky Mountain IPv6 Task Force (RMv6TF) is shaping up to be another great event this year. I attended both of the previous (2008 & 2009) RMv6 Summits and have thoroughly enjoyed every single session. I learned much more than I expected at each […]
Juniper Networks recently added a new resource for those new to JUNOS, or looking to try new things with JUNOS. They are calling it the Day One series and it shows potential. The goal of each Day One guide is to provide clear, concise, and practical step-by-step instructions for completing common tasks. Day One booklets […]
