I run an anycast network with 44 instances in 33 locations (with IPv6 supported by most of them) and can proxy/tunnel traffic to any location as desired.

depending on your definition of cheap, I can be cheap.

yeah, this is cool. but what would be cooler is being able to emulated non-virtualized/containerized control planes in something like QEMU.

I know there is some way to shove, say, a NetIron/PowerPC bag of firmware into QEMU and pelt it with BGP updates but...hell if I know how

outside of some Cisco switch IOS images, I haven't and don't see it supporting anything that isn't already virtualized by the vendor.

You need to hire a professional if you have any hope of building a stable network that will do the job.

Consumer grade routers will not work well for this.

Sorry friend, Putin has the entire GOP, NRA and Christian Right by the balls according to information received about the currently being tried Russian Spy Maria Butina.

Think about it. Clinton got impeached for lying to the American people about an extramarital affair once. But it's OK For Trump to consistently and repeatedly lie about knowing about Russia's involvement of a coup of America.

Sad times.

why do you think it's by the balls and not quid pro quo? for people who believe abortion is murder -- I mean really, really believe it -- do you think they care about working with a hostile nation? and White Nationalists like Bannon & Co? They absolutely will work in league with Russia. Russia wants to prop up ultra-nationalist and neo-nazi movements because it will fragement Europe.

A fragmented and/or Europe in disarray can't put up sanctions, can't stop energy deals, can't check Russias very limited power. Russia didn't tilt the election to Trump -- they cleverly used the rampant racism and ignorance to get him elected. A few voter rolls changed there, some dank memes here, some emails...they didn't do fuck all more than major nations have done to smaller ones for decades.

that it worked at all is on us as Americans. not Trump. not Russia. not Putin. *we* done goofed.

The Russians didn’t do anything of note. They didn’t hack machines, they didn’t flip votes, they did the same thing we and every other major power does. We spy, France spies, Germany spies, everyone spies. If this was known about an actually posed a threat to the election we would have proof and obama should have stopped it. Forced paper ballots with hand counting, stopped all political ads, made the country aware with all the information and evidence. The Russian narrative started when the dnc had their emails leaked and they needed to blame it on someone besides an insider who leaked it. They won’t let the fbi see their servers and even I the Russians did hack the dnc - the authenticity of the emails have never been questioned. If the Russians gave ya the info we needed - then they are friends. Hillary wanted to start a ground war, is it any mystery why they might have preferred trump?

ask your handlers for new material

As a bystander here, what are the chances of WWIII? If Trump gets impeached and has someone much less pro-Russia on his tail, or if we keep going the way we’re going? It’s a really scary thought and I’d prefer it to be as little of a possibility as possible

Russia is broke and desperate. If Putin succeeds in destabilizing a united Europe & "democratic" West, WW3 is exceedingly likely. if not guaranteed. within our (thirtysomething) lifetimes.

Find somewhere more affordable or make more money if the market rate is above your interest/ability to pay.

the marketrate is HIGHLY skewed by outside investors -- namely Russian and Chinese (and some Israelis) purchasing apartments as investment properties.

market rate is not being determined by local salaries or even Berlin/German market forces.

If that's true, rental prices will drop in no time.

did you type m2m world sim into google? because I get a buttload of options -- they're all resellers (not even MVNOs) but your requirement is one neck to choke, so they should all suffice.

if not, care to explain your requirements a bit further?

Yeah, it is something I want to do, but no one will listen.

"surely this vendor, who wants to part me from as much of my money as possible, has my best interests in mind. therefore I shall trust the vendor, and not my employees"

I will never understand those kinds of managers. well, I mean I do -- they're either (charitably) lazy or intentionally malicious ("my employees are too stupid to know what is good for them/their work")

Is that really a thing? Could be intriguing.

Who the hell downvotes a Super Troopers mention?!

will pmacct fit? try to get pmacct to fit on your LEDE/OpenWRT image.

Like I said previously, I would rather the drivers be native to the Linux kernel. However, as someone else pointed out the API is proprietary so it most likely isn't compliant with the GPL.

see more

from a performance perspective, why does that matter at all?

don't expect any switching ASIC vendor to mainline drivers. it's not gonna happen. NIC drivers just interface with a proprietary firmware API. everything happens in a "black box" there. it's the same thing with switching ASICs from Broadcom, Mellanox, Cavium, etc.

It matters because classic vendors has always been educating us that one box for all functions is the key to happiness.

Are you saying that these vendors (Cavium, brcm...etc) will never surrender and openly provide APIs ? I'd assume it will take its course and become a commodity tech at some point.

What i would really like to understand is simple, is there an industry direction to do networking in Linux, did we shift our mindset to that problem set ? is companies like Pica8, Cumulus...etc on their way to become the Redhat and Ubuntu of networking ?

that open "API" will be the P4 language.

Linux is the control plane for whitebox/"open" physical hardware and the data plane for virtualized network functions. Pica8 and Cumulus value add is the software running on top of a somewhat customized Linux distribution (I think Cumulus is Debian? I know Arista EOS is Fedora) and in Cumulus' case -- the driver for the switching ASIC

Couple thoughts: If you're really, really worried about it, you can always wrap it in saran wrap between opening it. The aforementioned wine preservation spray is good too.

Also you can always pour some for friends in exchange for them to pour rare ones too.

if you want to sell 1Gbps, look at DOCSIS 3.1, R-PHY, and a company called Glotel that does DOCSIS 3.0+ over mmWave fixed wireless -- anywhere from 3.5GHz up to 36GHz

you can run VDSL over cat3 wiring, and depending on the number of subs in the MDU, it can be economically viable to put a DSLAM in the basement.

outages cause churn, so run the numbers on redundancy. your timelines should be in the five year (or longer) -- trying to make something work that is instantly (less than 36 months) profitable is a fools errand. (remember cash flow is king, and you can turn a monthly net profit while still having debt exceed assets)

oh yeah, and many, many apartments have 10 year or greater deals for exclusivity -- meaning only the local ILEC or cable company can provide access to the building. sometimes that is illegal in the state or county, but who is going to call them out on it?
