While the recent movement toward network disaggregation has largely been associated with whitebox switches, the notion of modularizing monolithic systems is neither new nor confined to hardware and software. In this video, we look at the network disaggregation landscape, exploring some top-of-mind issues: vendor designs for disaggregation; support for integration and underlying hardware changes; likely targets for modularization, and what it will take to unlock them; and big network disruptors on the horizon.
In this video, you’ll hear from JR Rivers (Co-founder and CTO at Cumulus Networks), AE Natarajan (SVP of Engineering at Juniper Networks), and Keith Shinn (SVP, Head of Infrastructure at Caliber Home Loans).

Co-founder and CTO
JR is co-founder and CTO of the company where he works on company, technology, and product direction. JR has been involved with networking since Ethernet only ran on coaxial cables. He’s worked on some of the most foundational networking products of their time, from early Network Interface Cards at 3Com through switching and routing products at Cisco. JR’s early involvement in home-grown networking at Google and as the VP of System Architecture for Cisco’s Unified Computing System both helped fine tune his perspective on networking for the modern datacenter.
