1. By the way, here two recent talks about that 'ISP whitebox' project I presented at RIPE69, quoted in the article:

    NZNOG (Jan '18): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PnHdkN_TwqI
    ITNOG (Oct '17): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uKaEp-4pg_0

    Completely agree that "Enterprise are different" but imho ISPs are not: building your own gear has been a feasible and effective strategy for a few years.
  2. Also, you might have noticed that CloudFlare is launching the commercial equivalent of BeyondCorp: https://blog.cloudflare.com/introducing-cloudflare-access/

    I don't think a BeyondCorp (or non-Google equivalent) is a dumb move that deserves a 1925 misquote :)
  3. Intended or not Ivan is right about beyondcorp and rfc1925

    This is the original white paper https://research.google.com/pubs/pub43231.html which was published in 2014...so claiming it is a new idea is a bit of a stretch..
  4. It's all about people. The people make the difference not hardware or software. There's always a solution to a human created problem. May it be whitebox switches or what ever else have you. What's really ridiculous is the fact that it's still TCP/IP for over 30 years. So there's is no evolution and there won't ever be any (totally agree with RFC 1925). The only thing that's really evolving is human stupidity.
