Take a Network Break! This week we discuss new charges for IPv4 addresses being levied by AWS, Cisco’s acquisition of a BGP monitoring service, and financial results for a host of tech companies. We also speak with J Metz, the Steering Committee Chair of the Ultra Ethernet Consortium to learn more about the organization’s goals; and examine the efforts to investigate claims of a breakthrough in superconducting research.

Tech Bytes: Fortinet
Stay tuned for a Tech Bytes podcast we get into Digital Experience Monitoring, or DEM. DEM goes beyond traditional SLAs by offering more precise measurements of network and application performance as experienced by end users, and can provide detailed measurements to help network engineers identify and respond to problems. We talk with sponsor Fortinet about how it delivers DEM. Find out more at fortinet.com/dem.
