Dear Network,


You know we have always been close; in fact, you are as much a part of me as I am you. I want you to know that the next couple years are going to be challenging for us. We’re going to face ups, downs, IoTs, SDNs and a host of other things that will make our life together even more complex. I’ll always have time for you, of course, but you might not get the same attention you’re used to.





As network administrators, we all write letters to our networks, right? Right!? Well, even if you’re not accustomed to these heart-to-hearts with your network, we’d like you to dig deep for us and tell us what wisdom you would offer your network as if it were your own child preparing for the year ahead, which is sure to be filled with disruption and change.


Please use the comments section below to share the words of advice, predictions or confessions you have for your network to ensure it’s ready to take on the brave new world in the year ahead by Friday, November 5 and we’ll give you 250 thwack points in return.
