ONUG gets closer to making SD-WANs talk to each other
A group of networking engineers and vendors is making progress toward an API that would help enterprises merge SD-WANs from different vendors.The Open SD-WAN Exchange (OSE) initiative was launched last year by the Open Networking User Group (ONUG) to solve a shortcoming of software-defined wide-area networks: They often can't talk to each other. On Tuesday at the ONUG Spring 2017 conference in San Francisco, OSE will make public the work it's done so far.SD-WANs control links to branch offices …

Users' orders: Make it easier to build hybrid clouds
A funny thing happened on the way to the hybrid cloud: Building the infrastructure was a pain in the neck.That's what enterprise IT people in the Open Networking User Group have discovered Last year, public cloud providers persuaded C-level executives to move significant corporate workloads to the cloud, but the tools weren't there to make it work, said Nick Lippis, co-founder and co-chairman of ONUG."There is a ton of custom work that has to be done," Lippis said.Our new gaming site is live!

Best wireless router

Best wireless router
A good wireless router is an essential element of tech life, whether you’re building out a smart home or you just want the best experience streaming music and video at home. Even those of us fortunate enough to have ethernet drops in every room have devices—smartphones and tablets, for instance—that depend on Wi-Fi to connect to the home network if not the internet.Twin and sometimes conflicting demands for high performance and ease of use are powering a thriving and rapidly evolving market.

IT execs tout benefits of SD-WAN

IT execs tout benefits of SD-WAN
Enterprises are adopting software-defined WAN to simplify branch office connectivity, improve application performance, and better manage WAN expenses, according to Gartner, which predicts that spending on SD-WAN products will rise from $129 million in 2016 to $1.24 billion in 2020.“While WAN architectures and technologies tend to evolve at a very slow pace — perhaps a new generation every 10 to 15 years — the disruptions caused by the transformation to digital business models are driving adopti…

TP-Link Deco M5 router review: This mesh network comes with a side of antivirus

TP-Link Deco M5 router review: This mesh network comes with a side of antivirus
TP-Link makes a strong entry into the whole-home Wi-Fi game with its Deco M5. This router performs very well and has one uncommon feature: integrated antivirus/antimalware (from Trend Micro) that can protect all the devices on your network. But if you want one, you’ll need to pay for a $300 three-pack, as that’s the only way it’s available right now.TP-Link tells me that single units will eventually be available for $129 each, which is good news for folks living in smaller spaces. A single Deco…

The emergence of software-defined application delivery technology - and what it can do for your network

The emergence of software-defined application delivery technology - and what it can do for your network
This vendor-written tech primer has been edited by Network World to eliminate product promotion, but readers should note it will likely favor the submitter’s approach.The flexibility of the cloud has driven IT to look closely at opportunities to replicate that agility in their own infrastructure and operations. Automation initiatives have optimized many layers of the computing stack, but application delivery services remain a last-mile problem as network teams find themselves hamstrung by infle…
