10 Networking Blogs You Must Follow

So many network technology blogs, so little time. Get started with this list of blogs by networking experts and top Interop speakers.

Impressive list

Marcia, thank you for the list. I was only familiar with a couple of the blogs you mentioned.

I forgot about Howfunky.com, which I read a few times. I like the way Ed Horley follows all the IPv6 implementation and the hardware related to it.

I'm going to visit the other blogs and look around, I'm sure it will be worth the time.

Re: Impressive list

Glad you liked the list Pablo! Let us know what you think as you visit the blogs, or if you have other blogs you like.

Re: Impressive list
We have endless blogs available on internet, but getting shortlisted blog like above can help a lot. Thank You Marcia.
Re: Impressive list

I know what you mean about all the blogs Aditya! There are so many, and a lot of good ones. Hopefully the list helps!  

Re: Impressive list

Marcia, thank you for the important list, I never realized that a specialized site is in existence for IPv6. Considering, that almost everything seems to require an IP address nowadays to become efficient, IPv6 is the only option that can provide the necessary number of addresses. 

I am wondering, whether Interop is going to stream live videos of the seasons?

Re: Impressive list

Good question Brian I don't think Interop has live streamed sessions in the past, but I'll try to can find out if there are any live video plans for the upcoming Interop New York.

Re: Impressive list

Hi Brian -- So Interop New York won't have live streaming, but will have archive video of the keynotes available after the conference.

Re: Impressive list

@Marcia, thank you. That is excellent news as it would create the opportunity to revert back to the archive videos from time to time. All the topics here are very important with long lasting staying power -- making archives a great resource.

Re: Impressive list

I agree Brian, the archive videos are a great resource. Videos from Interop Las Vegas last spring include keynotes on SDN & BYOD -- very evergreen topics.

Re: Impressive list

Marcia, thank you for the link, it is definitely a link worth bookmarking.

I agree that SDN is an evergreen topic that fits a broad range of technologies. I also feel that SDN is a high impact topic, for example, some of the 6,000 job cuts that Cisco recently announced might be due to SDN. There could be a positive effect on the labor force due to these job cuts as restructuring of an economy's labor force can create efficiency, if hardware switching skills are implemented in a more specialized environment resulting in higher salaries. 

Some others to consider as well

Some great blogs missing here, and it looks like some of the vendor blogs (both branded and unbranded) didn't make the list. It's hard to consider any list complete without a few:

- VMWare's unbranded blog Network Heresy, with posts penned by Martin Casado, Bruce Davie, and others should make most top 10 lists: http://networkheresy.com/

- Matt Oswalt does a nice job dealing with advanced topics, especially around SDN at the Keeping It Classless: http://keepingitclassless.net/

- Tom Nolle is one of the more prolific authors, especially around the NFV space: http://blog.cimicorp.com/

- And the Plexxi blog (that I do a lot of writing for, full disclosure) covers an awful lot of ground (technical topics on Mon/Wed/Thu, non-technical on Tue/Fri): http://www.plexxi.com/blog/

10 Points on Windows 10: Features

usefull information..have a looked it.. a very important information provided by you.. thanku ma'am.
Microsoft is well known for its inability to communicate precisely why a consumer should buy and use its products. Next to Google, Samsung and Apple, Microsoft’s marketing department has A LOT to learn in the coming years. Just look at those recent Cortana adverts, for example, which were so bad it would have left David Brent cringing.
