MPLS or IPsec VPN: Which is the Best? [66453]
Networkworld, September 14th, 2017

"These days, you can get an extremely fast, fiber, business Internet connection for a relatively low cost. So, should you ditch your company's expensive MPLS Wide Area Network and replace it with an IPsec VPN over giant fiber Internet circuits at each site?

Scouring the online IT forums, it's hard not to get sucked-in to all the talk about how MPLS is too expensive and can easily be replaced with high-bandwidth, fiber Internet circuits and an IPsec VPN. If you currently have an MPLS network, it almost makes you want to throw a blanket over it and hope nobody notices your 'antiquated' Wide Area Network..."

Connecting Up the Quantum Internet [66451]
Science Daily, September 11th, 2017

"Major leap for practical building blocks of a quantum internet: New research demonstrates how to dramatically improve the storage time of a telecom-compatible quantum memory, a vital component of a global quantum network. The technology operates in the same 1550 nanometer band as today's telecommunications infrastructure. It can also be operated as a quantum light source or used as an optical link for solid-state quantum computing devices such as superconducting qubits and silicon qubits..."

How Network Automation Can Speed Deployments and Improve Security [66452]
Networkworld, September 11th, 2017

"VMware shops discuss the benefits of network automation for security and management, but also for supporting agile projects

Five years ago, IT was decentralized at the University of New Mexico. 'Every school or college had their own IT, and in most cases they were completely under-resourced - a one-person shop having to do phones, apps, email, desktop, servers, storage, disaster recovery, all of that,' said Brian Pietrewicz, deputy CIO at University of New Mexico..."

Here's How the Software-Defined Network that Powers Azure Works [66113]
The VAR Guy, September 5th, 2017

"For a couple of decades now, Albert Greenberg has been quietly transforming the internet. Somewhat of a legend in network engineering circles, he's done some of the fundamental early research work on software-defined networking and has been one of the principal engineering minds responsible for turning AT&T from a phone service to an internet company and for designing one of the world's largest cloud platforms: Microsoft Azure..."
