Here in Denver, Jeremy Duncan (@nacnud) will be speaking on the IPv6 capabilities of whitebox networking at the North American IPv6 Summit on Thursday, 25 September, 1:30 – 2:30 pm. More details on this presentation, as well as other great talks, are located on the conference website here:
Jeremy will outline all kinds of great info on whitebox networking. Some of those key topis are:
- What is whitebox networking?
- Advantages/Disadvantages of whitebox (no vertical lock-in)
- The big hardware manufacturers of these switches and routers
- The embedded software from all the big vendors like Pica8, BigSwitch, and Cumulus Networks
- How IPv6 is working on each of these, as well as their current limitations
- How they intersect with SDN
After the presentation, Jeremy will give a demo of (4) Acton switches running Cumulus Linux. He will demonstrated how Puppet is used to auto-provision the switches, as well as how OSPFv3 routing is working.
