In a discussion on the Packet Pushers’ Slack channel, Greg shared some slides from 1999, where some of the same points he raised 20 years ago are still true today. Why is networking so slow to change?
That’s the focus of our discussion today. Joining us is Emma Cardinal-Richards, Senior Network Architect at University College in London. This is her first time appearing on Heavy Networking.
Also joining us is Jeremy Filliben. Jeremy is the Owner/Consultant/Instructor at Pristine Packets. You might know him as a CCDE trainer.
Please welcome both Emma and Jeremy into your earbuds, and let’s get into our discussion on what it is about networking that makes it slow to change.
Here’s the slides that spurred this episode:
