Learn about mental models, situational awareness, and how to
monitor hybrid and SD-WAN networks

Our very own CTO, John Smith, was recently interviewed by Ethan Banks and Greg Ferro of Packet Pushers for an always-punchy, no-single-pane-of-glass-allowed conversation. They talked about lots of interesting changes going on in the network today. Here’s a sneak peek of what they’ll cover in this week’s podcast:

  • How to manage a multi-vendor, multi-fabric and multi-cloud network environments.
  • Gaining visibility into the hybrid WAN and SD-WAN: As we get more adoption across the global market, how can network pros understand the performance and service levels of the network as you mix MPLS and Internet transports?
  • Network Operations & The Human Element: More network data means more complexity and thus more load on already-stretched network engineers and operators. Here’s where the application of automation and machine learning can quell the “barking dog” and let the experts do expert-y kinds of things that make end users happy.
