Revenge of the Analog

April 27, 2017

As an old Bell Head, my eyes start to mist when some one actually draws a network these days and not just a cloud.   

Normally, this happens because of redundancy requirements or some specific needs for bandwidth.

As the Internet continues to morph into the needs of the many, the analog side of the equation has creeped back into the terminology we use to describe networks and services.

For example:  
  • SDN is often talked about in terms of slicing off a piece of the network for an Enterprise.
  • Big Data Streams Databases
  • SIP of course is a session oriented protocols
  • Fiber does colors with Wave Division Multiplexing [WDM]

The implications are that we want to know where things are going and that nothing intercedes or interferes with the communications path.

With all these technologies the use of Internet Packet technology is assumed. 

Joining TMC to run Communications 2020 gives me the opportunity to come back to my routes.  Candidly, I have wanted to return to the communications aspects of technology.

Somethings I expected to happen years, ago have yet to occur.
