What is IP Anycast? Is IP Anycast a routing protocol? Where IP Anycast is used in Networking?. In this post I will answer these questions.
Edge computing is a networking philosophy focused on bringing computing as close to the source of data as possible, in order to reduce latency and bandwidth usage. In a simpler term, edge computing means running fewer processes in the cloud and moving those processes to local places, such as on a user’s computer, an IoT …
In computer network engineering almost always we use different definitions/wordings to explain same thing. In this post, I will give you some examples, please add whatever else you remember in the comment box below , we can discuss them there.
What is urban and rural area ? What is underserved area in networking ? These definitions are heavily used in networking. And all broadband network designers take always these definitions into an account while they do their design. I think knowing these definitions as a network engineer is valuable for you.
One of the advantages of EIGRP Feasible Successor is that it speeds up the EIGRP. In fact, if there is a Feasible Successor in the EIGRP network, such network converges faster than OSPF or IS-IS.
Spanning Tree, Link Aggregation , VLAN and First Hop Redundancy protocols are used in Campus, Service Provider Access and Aggregation and in the Datacenter environment. There are definitely other protocols which are common across the Places in the Networks but in order to keep this article short and meaningful I choose these four.
Control plane packets are used to build a communication path between the networking devices. In some cases control plane is used to advertise and learn the endpoints. Imagine a network which consist of these networking devices, in order to crate a graph or tree among them for bridging or routing purpose, control plane protocols are …
In networking we use many times different terms to define the same thing. MPLS tunnel label or transport label are just two of those.
VRF-Lite + GRE – I am going to create a new category on the blog which we will discuss together the different technologies,protocols, designs and architecture.
What is tier in the first place ? If you are dealing with Service Provider networks, you hear this term a lot. But how we define Tier 1,Tier 2 and Tier 3 Service Providers ?
