Cloud Ethernet Forum – Because Ethernet needs to look like Frame Relay

Where do you want Ethernet ? Everywhere apparently.

I’m at a conference about “Cloud Ethernet Forum” and subsidiary operation of the Metro Ethernet Forum that seems to want to invent a new Ethernet. The fundamental premise of the is that customers need/want/demand/must have more Ethernet in the WAN.

Why ? Because Ethernet is better for data centre managers.

IETF RFCs and Pagination. Still necessary ?

ietf-rfc-pagination-1

I don’t read every IETF RFC but I try look over a lot of them in my RSS reader as they are published. The IETF RFCs are all paginated like this, which is annoying. It’s not good politics to alienate the International audience this way.
