Converged SDN Transport SRv6 Design
This in-depth guide adds SRv6 uSID transport to the Converged SDN Transport Design. SRv6 enables a new level of simplicity and power to networks carrying any type of service traffic. Harnessing the power of IPv6, the service and transport layers are converged into a single seamless easy to operate network without the complexities of MPLS label distribution and switching.
Routed Optical Networking Design 2.0
Update to the Routed Optical Networking 1.0 design. This large addition to the solution introduces Private Line Emulation for Fiber Channel, OTN, SONET/SDH, and Ethernet services along with Cisco's next-generation NCS 1010 Open Optical Line System. Additional enhancements to Routed Optical Networking automation are also found in this release.
Managing Routed Optical Networking using OpenConfig
Cisco's innovation with Routed Optical Networking doesn't stop at routing hardware and optics. Programmability and telemetry via open standards has been a key tenet to the solution since it was introduced in 2020. In this blog we explore using OpenConfig to provision and monitor OIF 400ZR and OpenZR+ DCO transceivers.

Internet Traffic Trends
Over the last five years Internet traffic has been driven by one dominant source, unicast Internet video. Two-part blog series will first cover how video delivery has evolved to bring us where we are today.
Internet Edge Peering - Current Practice
The Internet was created to provide transparent data services across interconnected packet switched networks. The interconnection and exchange of Internet routing data between two networks is known as Peering. Peering is the glue holding together the Internet.
