NICHOLAS FURMAN | December 19, 2018

Holidays are a great time of year to take a moment and reflect. In 2018 at VMware Networking & Security, we’ve had yet another exciting year for us—we’re very proud of many achievements. For example, NSX now being deployed by 82% of Fortune 100 companies is a substantial industry adoption data point. But rather than focus on those numbers, I wanted to take a moment to highlight one of our biggest accomplishments this year (in my opinion). Oh, and in case you missed some of those 2018 highlights, you can catch a replay of Tom Gillis’ keynote Building the Network of the Future with the Virtual Cloud Network from VMWorld US 2018.

Moka5

Based on research conducted by Stanford University, Moka5 (M5) fundamentally transforms enterprise end-user computing. M5 creates a highly-elastic enterprise perimeter where user data and applications are delivered as simply-managed and highly-secure workspaces to popular end-user devices. M5 enables both online and offline access and requires significantly less management overhead than legacy VDI or mobility solutions, while being significantly more secure than cloud-based file sharing, with a common platform that scales from the desktop to tablets and smartphones, Moka5 is Enterprise AnyWare.

How to automate the creation multiple routable VLANs on single L2 network using VyOS

Article | February 12, 2020

My personal homelab has a very simple network topology, everything is connected to a single flat network. This has served me well over the years, but sometimes it can prevent me from deploying more complex scenarios. Most recently while working with NSX-T and Project Pacific, I had a need for additional VLANs which my home router does not support. There are a number of software solutions that can be used including the popular pfSense, which I have used before. Over the Winter break, a colleague introduced me to VyOS, which is another popular software firewall and router solution. I had not heard of VyOS before but later realized it was derived from Vyatta, which I had heard of, but development of that solution had stopped and VyOS is now the open source version of that software. Having never played with VyoS before, I thought this might be a good learning opopournity and started to dabble with VyOS over the holiday.

Why America Must win the Race to 5G

Article | March 15, 2020

The United States has entered another technology duel on par with the space race—the race for the 5G network. It will revolutionize digital interconnectivity through enhanced data processing and storage capacity. The Chinese technology giant Huawei is capturing the 5G telecommunications equipment industry worldwide. Huawei promotes contracts covering every aspect of the 5G network from financing to installation. The United States is concerned that the company’s growth amplifies China’s political sway and brings security vulnerabilities. Huawei is subservient to the communist government under Chinese law. Multiple governments have indicted Huawei for espionage, theft, bribery, and corruption. The United States has added to these charges obstruction of justice, fraud, and illicit sales to the rogue regimes of Iran and North Korea. As the West and China haggle over the 5G market, several nations face a telling choice. To meet the 5G challenge, the United States should negotiate trade agreements on end-to-end 5G services, create supply chains for upcoming virtualized 5G networks, support alternate suppliers, and invest in domestic research to dampen Huawei’s expansion.
