In this practical book, Juniper Networks consulting senior network engineer, Peter Southwick, offers unique first-person field studies on designing, configuring, and troubleshooting new systems that are changing the networking world. Each chapter-long "travelogue" follows a team of Juniper Networks warriors as they solve specific needs with emerging network platform architectures.
In these case studies, Southwick and his fellow warriors analyze a client’s particular situation, arrive at an architectural solution, and work through the deployment details. For anyone who operates, installs, designs, or works in IT, this book provides an intimate and entertaining look at what’s changing and why.
