Show 35 – Media Markup – A Garden of Switches


This is Packet Pushers Media Mungle, new format were we gather people from from the technology media to sit down around the virtual workbench and look back at events with beady media eye. We’ll take closer look at what’s been happening and discuss what’s happening in a little bit more detail. We got a list of topics to discuss and here is who’s who in the zoo today.

Matters At Hand

Juniper QFabric and it’s impact on the market

Cisco SecureX strategy – is there a plan ? First it was Borderless Networks, now it’s SecureX. Along the way we lost a lot of products, and seen a lot of delays.

Any news from Brocade ? Nah, still nothing.

There is also the Huawei/Symantec and Force10 deal which could be interesting. Breathes some life into Force10
