IPv6 is badly designed. Constant updates make us uncertain. Lack of features make us unwilling.
But I’ve been reading whitepapers about the possible future of 5G networking and its becoming clear to me that the larger part of any private WAN (if you have one at all) is going to be wireless in the next ten years.
I present an outline of a segmented front end that avoids the limitations of the traditional load balancer designs. It allow horizontal scaling of for multi-10Gb ISP service, resiliency, redundancy at a fraction of the cost of conventional design.
Today you design resilient, redundant networks with what you have. Tomorrow, we need networks that use using software and freedom to be predictable and safe.
The technology that gives me a “nerd hard-on” this month is SDN WAN. Here is why.
