Finally DOCSYS 3.0 in the US!

Very interesting news today about Cablevision announcing their new service that will support 101Mbit down/15Mbit up speeds for (a cheap by US standards) $99:


Now only if we could get up to speed (and price) with Japan and South Korea...


Don't fret, I'm still waiting on getting a new desktop computer to really get running w/ GNS3 for some good material. But as of now, my laptop that I was using died, so I'm stuck on my netbook (believe me it's no powerhouse) and work computer (don't exactly have much time to blog from work :).

Here's some topics I plan on writing about soon:
  • Multicast - Anycast RP and MSDP (maybe some about MDT in MPLS networks)
  • OSPF - Performance and stability tweaks
  • EEM
  • Network management application reviews
  • Miscellaneous IOS tricks
  • etc

The Beginning

Hi World! My name is Mark Lah, I'm a network engineer at a high-tech communications company in Melbourne, FL, and there's this thing called 'The Internet' that I kinda like.

For a while now I've been addicted to reading other networkers blogs, which I often learn new things everyday from, and I figure why not start my own professional blog that others might learn from me about technologies, scenarios, and networking in general that I've learned. I'm currently pursuing my CCNP certification (CCNA is under the belt already), I already have the BSCI and ONT exams completed, and will be taking the BCMSN here in a couple weeks. After I complete my CCNP, I plan on going after the CCDA/CCDP, and my ultimate goal in the cert world is to, of course, obtain the CCIE.

I plan on having new posts almost daily, but will realisticly be starting out much slower as I get into 'the groove' of blogging.

Thanks for stopping by, and come back soon (I should have some good reading material up soon).
