A while ago I started discussing the intricate technical details of fibbing (an ingenious way of implementing traffic engineering with traditional OSPF) with Laurent Vanbever and other members of his group, and we decided to record a podcast on this topic.
Correction: While NoviFlow is “that Canadian startup” we mentioned during our conversation, and they do use EZChip NPU to implement ridiculously-large flow tables, their hardware is not used by the SDX Laurent mentioned.
