Just finished some testing at test equipment partner Spirent's offices in glamorous Crawley with client Voipex - some fab results on VoIP optimization so watch this space for the forthcoming report - and it made me think just how...

So here we are, already several weeks into 2013 and is there anything new to report on the networking front?

Not really - currently the same stories as we've been hearing for the past year or two - SDN, Cloud etc.... I am, at least, about to put some element of cloud to the...

I know that we IT lot live on a different planet to the rest of the world (or so we are often told), but I'm really trying to find the real recession out there at the mo'.

Take airlines for example. I've been doing far too much travelling for my own good over the past few months,...

London to Brussels to Andorra in under 30ms - not bad eh?

Even the Bugatti Veyron can't achieve that (though with permanent four-wheel drive you'd think it would be ideal for British winter conditions, yet you barely ever see one, strange!) but... Vidyo can.

I first saw these...

So - MWC 2010 is currently on in Barcelona, but I was actually down there last week at Netevents - - speaking on a couple of Cloud Computing panels.

The Cloud then - hype or reality? Definitely the latter. Yes, there is nothing brand new here - mainframe time-sharing...

Is No News Really Good News?

It's the middle of January now and, since snow and tragic earthquakes do not qualify as mainstream networking news, I've been patiently waiting for some news to appear in the networking world so that I can blog about it and, well, none has.

The closest we've come was with the GreenTouch...

For anyone else who travels as much as I seem to at the moment, you have my deepest sympathies.

Finally back "home" after over six weeks on the road, almost entirely in England. Well, at least I did catch the English "summer" now relocated to September (except it always has been the...

Bye Bye Nortel – Bye Bye Bay – Bye Bye Avaya? Bye Bye Vista!

So it looks like the Enterprise networking division of Nortel is going to Avaya after all.

Shame, 'cos I really liked the idea of it being bought out and Bay Networks being reinvented - from an original idea by (ex-ProCurve) John McHugh, who took over the ailing (been waiting years to...
