Jeff Tantsura joined Apstra as the Head of Networking Strategy. Prior to Apstra Jeff has worked at Nuage Networks as Head of Technology Strategy, driving technology strategy for SDx 2.0, evolution of SD-WAN with 5G and IoT, end2end co-operative policy framework, networking and new Segment Routing based Architecture to provide seamless DC-WAN-DC connectivity (NFIX). Prior to Nuage Networks, Jeff worked as the VP of Network Architecture at Futurewei and Routing CTO at Ericsson.
He is very active in IETF, with 50 plus RFC’s and drafts co-authored. He is the chair of IETF Routing Working Group (RTGWG) responsible for the new Network Architectures and technologies, and in the last years most notably - RFC7938 BGP Routing in the large DCs and RFC7490 - IP FRR framework and LFA (Loop Free Alternatives). He is also the chair of IETF Routing in FAT Tries (RIFT) working group designing and standardizing a new novel routing protocol, purposely designed for DCs. Jeff serves the Internet Architecture Board (IAB), responsible for future developments of the Internet, guiding IETF work with a focus on 5G and Network Slicing and is also Board Member at SF Bay Area Chapter of the Internet Society
Jeff’s main areas of expertise are: network architecture, routing protocols and algorithms, programmable networking and data modeling efforts around,. He has filed 30+ patents in the area of routing protocols, networking complexity @scale and policies, intent modeling and instantiation. He is the author of a book with Russ White titled “Navigating Network Complexity: Next-generation Routing with SDN, Service Virtualization, and Service Chaining”, as well as the technical editor of "Building Data Centers with VXLAN BGP EVPN: A Cisco NX-OS Perspective" book.
He is married with 3 children and an adorable dachshund, living in Palo Alto, CA. In his free time, he is an avid skier, reader, jazz piano and ping-pong player.
