    Heavy Networking 598: The Future Of Networking – Quantum Communications With Joshua Slater

    Heavy Networking 598: The Future Of Networking – Quantum Communications With Joshua Slater

    Heavy Networking adds another episode to the Future Of Networking series we’ve been doing off and on over the years. Today’s series entry? Quantum communications.

    Important note: this isn’t about quantum computing. While quantum communications and quantum computing are related, they are different disciplines with different applications. We’re focused today on the communications and networking aspects of the quantum realm.

    Our guest is Dr. Joshua Slater. Josh is a Quantum Scientist and Engineer at QuTech in the Delft Area, Netherlands.

    We discuss:



    * How quantum communications differs from quantum computing

    * What a qubit is and how it’s encoded to carry data

    * The role of quantum entanglement

    * Moving a qubit across a network

    * Use cases for this technology, including key distribution

    * Why crosstalk is a problem for quantum communications, even on fiber

    * The state of quantum communications today and where it’s headed

    * More

    Day Two Cloud 115: Software-Defined Interconnects With Console Connect (Sponsored)

    Today’s Day Two Cloud sponsored episode dives into software-defined interconnects. The big idea is that you go up to a Web browser, click a few times, and now you’ve got a circuit stood up between your data center and AWS, or between you and a business partner, and so on. We’ll get into the details about how it’s done with Console Connect, a PCCW Global company.

    Our guests from Console Connect at PCCW Global Limited are Jay Turner, Vice President of Development and Operations; and Paul Gampe, Chief Technology Officer.

    We discuss:



    * Console Connect’s connectivity platform

    * Getting under the hood of the orchestration engine

    * How Console Connect sets up the workflow underneath the automation magic

    * Running multiple services over a single circuit

    Network Break 350: Intel Pledges Billions For European Chip Factories; Facebook Reveals New Data Center Design

    Take a Network Break! Intel pledges as much as $95 billion over ten years to build new chip plants in Europe–but what does Intel want in return? Facebook pulls back the curtain on its newest data center design, including details on switch hardware built in partnership with Arista. Netgear publishes patches for 20 different switches after new vulnerabilities go public.

    Comcast Business buys Masergy to boost its managed service portfolio, we discuss what you should do to be aware of government shutdowns of local Internet connectivity, and what the end of the video chat app Houseparty might mean for online events.

    Heavy Networking 597: Why Enterprises Want Private 5G (Sponsored)

    Heavy Networking 597: Why Enterprises Want Private 5G (Sponsored)

    On today’s Heavy Networking podcast we discuss why an enterprise might want its own private 5G network. Wi-Fi is the common mechanism for mobile access, but it has drawbacks including dead zones, interference from physical structures or other RF signals, as well as latency and bandwidth challenges.

    With private 5G, you can address coverage issues related to interference and distance, as well as provide greater capacity and reach, particularly for IoT devices. Private 5G can also enable better security control than Wi-Fi.

    We’ll discuss the pros and cons of private 5G, examine use cases, unpack the hardware and software required to build and operate private 5G, and more. Our guest from Intel is Bhupesh Agrawal, Director, Product Marketing – Private Wireless Networks & Edge Computing.

Still going strong

I've been listening for years and there's always something new to learn or consider. keep up the good work guys

ArunSNR ,

Basically, it's Top Gear for network nerds.

Entertaining, informative, a great outlet for the smaller vendors -a bit of a grapevine for the bigger ones.

Back in the day, when we wanted to slag off the pseudo technical vendor led decisions we were forced to implement, we had to do it hush hush. (Near the rack with all the noisy 1U servers were so the corporate bugging team wouldn't be able to record us).

Keep it up guys, if I ever see you -I'll buy you a pint, vendor credit card or not!

Juicytunes ,

Technical and a bit witty too

Tech updates laced with some jargon but always humorous. The presenters provide insights, and with their contributors, there is always something to learn. If you work in one of those networking type industries then these updates will connect you to what is happening in your tech sphere.
