At Future:NET 2018, Ed Horley got to hear a session on how blockchain technology could impact enterprise networks. Despite hype around financial applications, Ed looks how how blockchain could be used for microtransactions between unknown parties, virtualized network functions, and IoT trust models. Blockchain has many more applications beyond cryptocurrency, and Future:NET 2018 showed the possible network implications.
Service mesh and automation featured heavily in Future:NET 2018 presentations. Ed Horley was able to attend them, and shares his thoughts in this post.

Ivan Pepelnjak from ipSpace.net comments: Ed Horley, an awesome IPv6 geek I had the privilege to meet at NFD6, wrote an interesting blog post arguing against IPv6 ULA usage (particularly when combined with NPT66). We would all love to get rid of NAT, however … Ivan takes a look at Ed Horley’s great ULA post […]
Ed Horley from Howfunky.com comments: I am often asked interesting questions by fellow IT professionals about IPv6. Some are worthy of a blog post or two so here it is. The subject of IPv6 Unique Local Address or ULA (which is one of the unicast IPv6 address types) seems to be getting more attention now […]
Ed Horley of Howfunky.com writes about an upcoming networking event: Seems that Tech Field Day and SDN Central are planning a Software-Defined Datacenter Symposium that will September 10th at the Network Meeting Center at Techmart in Santa Clara, CA.
