IPv6 - No Longer Optional AND Implementing IPv6 at the American Registry for Internet Numbers: An Experience Report

November 12, 2010 - 12:00pm
Seminar Host/Point of Contact: 

The available pool of IPv4 addresses - less than 7% - will run out in about a year. The solution is IPv6. While this seemingly endless number of addresses will help support next-generation, IP-based networks and services, many companies have been slow to adopt IPv6 because of cost, and the need for bridging technology to make IPv4 and IPv6 systems compatible. The Lab began work on a IPv6 trial in early 2009. This dual presentation should be of interest to both network engineers and those with an interest in the smart grid or networked building technologies. Richard Jimmerson, CIO of the American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN), will discuss the key considerations for and benefits of IPv6 adoption. Richard will review regional and global IPv4 depletion and IPv6 adoption statistics, address allocation trends, and resources available to help system and network administrators prepare. ARIN finished enabling all systems and services for IPv6 in 2008. Matt Ryanczak, Network Operations Manager of ARIN, will describe, in more technical detail, how they started from a single IPv6-only T1 circuit to their Chantilly, Virginia office, and accomplished a full IPv6 deployment. ARIN is the nonprofit corporation that manages the distribution of Internet number resources, including IPv4 and IPv6 addresses and Autonomous System Numbers (ASNs), to Canada, many Caribbean and North Atlantic islands, and the United States.
