Date / Time: Tuesday, July 30, 2019, 11:00 a.m. New York/ 4:00 pm London
sponsored by
Sterling Perrin, Principal Analyst – Optical Networking & Transport, Heavy Reading

Ron Bonica, Distinguished Engineer, Juniper Networks

Bilal Shahid, Product Line Manager, Juniper Networks

Segment Routing (SR) was introduced to the market just a few years ago with a promise that it would simplify network transport by seamlessly interworking with IPv6, reduce complexity by moving state information from the network to the packet, and provide an end-to-end transport architecture that spans multiple network domains.

Adoption of SR is growing, but will SR deliver on its promise? In this webinar we will explore the state of SR today; what is working, what’s not, and perhaps more importantly, what is the industry doing to ensure broad, reliable adoption at scale for this promising new technology. Please join representatives from Heavy Reading and Juniper Networks as we discuss:

  • How SR-MPLS (SRover6), SRv6, and SRv6+ are enabling end-to-end network deployment
  • SRv6+ and why we need it
  • The use of a centralized controller for SR Traffic Engineering
  • How a centralized SR controller simplifies SR management across multiple network domains
