In this month's edition: Kubernetes within the realms of open networking; a webinar on Flextune, Finisar's self-tuning DWDM SFP+ transceivers; and widespread availability of 25G and 100G ethernet switches from Edgecore Networks.
"Once a new technology rolls over you, if you’re not part of the steamroller, you’re part of the road.” - Stewart Brand. In this article, Barry does a deep dive into Kubernetes Networking: how communication takes place between clusters consisting of various nodes and pods, and examines the technologies that implement this, in particular Apstra's AOS, Big Swtich's Big Cloud Fabric and SnapRoute's CN-NOS.

Finisar's Flextune™ self-tuning capability significantly decreases CapEx & OpEx - only a single transceiver SKU is needed to support the full C-band (instead of 40 or 96), so the required inventory for sparing is significantly reduced. It also saves hours during deployment by reducing complexity and eliminating the need to track fibers because up to 96 wavelength-tunable transceivers in a DWDM network will automatically configure their wavelengths within ~5 minutes without any input from field technicians or the host network equipment. Modules are truly plug-and-play.

Widespread adoption of 25G equipped datacenter servers is rapidly driving an upgrade from 10G leaf switches to 25G, and 40G spine switches to 100G. Edgecore’s newest AS7326-56X 25G and AS7726-32X 100G switches, available now, are powered by Broadcom’s newest generation StrataXGS Trident 3 switch family.
Check out the 25G AS7326-56X and 100G AS7726-32X here.
