A Few More Details on the Upcoming 2017 NAv6TF Conference

Some more on the upcoming event.

At this year’s IPv6 Summit event we will celebrate all that has been accomplished regarding IPv6 deployment.  We will also discuss the remaining challenges for IPv6 adoption.  The IPv6 Summit event this year will focus on the accomplishments that have been made in recent years that have driven the accelerating growth in IPv6 Internet traffic.  The event would like to celebrate the hard work performed by broadband service providers, mobile carriers, online content providers, content distribution networks, equipment manufacturers, operating system manufacturers, and numerous others.

Following are a list of topics that we would like the presentations to cover:

  • Examples of exemplary IPv6 adoption
  • Best practices for IPv6 deployment and promotion of IPv6 adoption
  • Methods that have driven increased usage of IPv6

Happy New Year 2017

On behalf of the board of TXv6TF, I want to wish everyone a happy, safe and productive 2017. So much has happened in the IPv6 world since our first meeting in 2009. In the US, IPv6 deployments continue to accelerate as organizations refresh their networks and Service Providers improve their service offerings.

This is happening around the world as well at different rates (some faster than the US, some slower). Today, I can use resources that run totally over IPv6, some are mixed and a shrinking few are still IPv4 only. I hope to see that last group fade quickly as the days pass.

As for the plans for 2017, watch this space!

Happy New Year 2016!

I want to wish all readers a Happy New Year!

I wanted to let you all know that we had an important change in 2015. Stephan Lagerholm, who founded TXv6TF with me, has moved on to new opportunities. Replacing him is Jeff Carrell who was elected to the board and serves in 2016 as Vice Chairman.

We hope to have more to share with what we are planning for 2016.

Your thoughts are always welcome. Please email info@txv6tf.org.
