1 minute read

We’re up at NANOG 67 in Chicago, IL, next week!

Over the course of more than 2 decades, the North American Network Operators’ Group (NANOG) has been at the epicenter of the net-ops transformation.
This unique congregation of vendors, service-provider, Data-Center and Enterprise SMEs and network engineers provides a perfect opportunity to showcase some of the new enhancements in IOS-XR.

As always, there is a fair bit of Cisco participation, with content focused on Streaming Telemetry, connectivity evaluation techniques and remediation techniques using Linux applications. Of course, if you’re looking to talk about IOS-XR and other Cisco solutions for the Web, Data Center and Service Provider domain, you’ll find a lot of us roaming about!

If you’re heading over to NANOG 67, then check out the following sessions to get a gist of the upcoming enhancements in IOS-XR:

That’s a lot to look out for! But as part of the application-hosting team in IOS-XR, we’re particularly excited about showing you the underlying linux infrastructure in IOS-XR and its integration with typical linux applications. At the Beer-n-Gear demo booth, We will have our own booth showcasing some cool new tricks with IOS-XR.

The demo would be based off the following application on Github:

The figure below should pretty much explain what we’re going for:

iperf based OSPF path remediation

We’ll show how you can bring up Containers on XR to run iperf with XR interfaces, and leverage YDK to affect OSPF path cost.

Further, We bring you these demos using the new IOS-XR Vagrant box that is currently in private-beta.
If you haven’t heard about it yet, take a look at the following quick-start guide to get you going:
