Conference Agenda

IPv4 Transition Techniques : Eric Vyncke : Cisco

What transition techniques are being used today to integrate IPv6 and IPv4 networks? Many different techniques exist, each with their own strengths and drawbacks. In this session, Eric will discuss the concepts, performance and security aspects of techniques from the well known tunnels 6to4 and Teredo to the newer 6rd. As tunnels are not always applicable, address family translation, also known as NAT64 will be described.

IPv6 Diagnostics : James Ashton : Inside Products

How do you start reading traces for IPv6? We need to start first with the changes in the IP header and then move on to header chaining, and IPv6 tunneled traces. Deep packet inspection will be one of the first requirements in transitional networks.

In this session, Jim will review use WireShark and TCP Problem Finder to show packet traces for:

  • FTP using IPv6
  • IPv6 Teredo Tunneling
  • DNS AAAA, A, and Multicast DNS
  • 6to4 Tunneling
  • IPv6 Tunnel Broker

IPv6 for Small Medium Businesses: Easy or Hard? : Jeff Carrell : Network Conversions

Is your company network capable of supporting IPv6? Does your ISP support IPv6? These questions and more require answers, products, and solutions in order for the thousands of existing networks to support connecting to the Internet via IPv6. This presentation will focus on the various network connected devices, how they can be configured for IPv6, and how an existing network can be connected to the Internet supporting full IPv6 connectivity, even if the ISP does not supply IPv6 capability. Discussion and examples of how to support IPv6 enabled applications and services will also be highlighted. In addition, a live demonstration network will include IPv4 and IPv6 (known as dual stack)..

IPv4 and IPv6 : Marco Hogewoning : RIPE

What is the status of IPv6 address distribution in Europe? This session is presented by the Reseaux Internet Protocol Européens (RIPE) Network Coordinating Center (NCC). RIPE is one of five Regional Internet Registries (RIRs) providing Internet resource allocations, registration services and coordination activities that support the operation of the Internet globally.

This session will be an an overview of the current situation in both the numbers and policy, including the challenges we all face in the transition to IPv6. Marco will discuss the statistics on IPv6 deployment in the RIPE NCC Service Region (IPv6 RIPEness) as well as observations from the Routing Information Services (RIS).

Marco Hogewoning : Biography

marcohogewoning.jpg Marco Hogewoning works as a Trainer for the RIPE NCC. His expertise includes: IPv6, RIPE and RIPE community, BGP and routing policies, LIR operations, and network design and engineering. Prior to joining the RIPE NCC in 2011, he worked as a Network Engineer for various Dutch Internet Service Providers. As well as designing and operating the networks, he was also involved in running the Local Internet Registries.

During 2009 and 2010, Marco worked on introducing native IPv6 as a standard service on the XS4ALL DSL network. In November 2010, this project was awarded a Dutch IPv6 award. Marco has been involved with the RIPE community since 2001 and was involved with various policy proposals over that period. In February 2010, he was appointed by the RIPE community as one of the co-chairs of the IPv6 Working Group.

IPv6 and Cloud Computing : Dr. Ciprian Popoviciu : Nephos6

Tremendous opportunities and challenges lay ahead of IT organizations, both enterprises and service providers. We are facing two major inflexion points that are taking place at the same time, they have the potential to change the competitive landscape and they are not straightforward to implement. These are:

  • The transition to IPv6
  • The adoption of Cloud

The point often missed by the discussions on either of the two events is that the two inflexion points, one dealing with scalability and the other with agility, are tightly correlated. The right approach to pursuing next generation infrastructures and ITaaS must deal with both of them simultaneously and comprehensively.

Dr. Ciprian Popoviciu : Biography

Prior to starting Nephos6, Ciprian managed the architecture team of Cisco’s Engineering Infrastructure Services organization where he defined the strategy and led the execution of the internal DC consolidation and transition to cloud. He is an industry recognized domain expert in IPv6 who, over the past 10 years worked on the strategy, architecture, implementation and validation of IPv6 adoption by large service providers and enterprises Worldwide. Ciprian worked with various governments on defining national level and agency level IPv6 strategies and standards. He also worked with product and test teams on specific IPv6 features and roadmaps towards IPv6 readiness. Ciprian authored two IPv6 books: “Deploying IPv6 Networks” and “Global IPv6 Strategies”. He co-authored 5 IPv6 related IETF RFCs and multiple IPv6 related patents. Ciprian is a frequent speaker to industry events and conferences and he is an active contributor to various technology and scientific publications. He taught IPv6 classes at several Universities and leads IPv6 training events for both executives and technologists.

IPv6 Address Planning : Nalini Elkins : Inside Products

Many items have changed with IPv6 but none as dramatically as the addressing scheme. Even before you begin your transition, setting up your addressing profile will be critical. The very large IPv6 address space supports a total of 2128 (about 3.4×1038) addresses—or approximately 5×1028 (roughly 295) addresses for each of the roughly 6.8 billion (6.8×109) people alive in 2010. In another perspective, this is the same number of IP addresses per person as the number of atoms in a metric ton of carbon.

While these numbers are impressive, it was not the intent of the designers of the IPv6 address space to assure geographical saturation with usable addresses. Rather, the longer addresses allow a better, systematic, hierarchical allocation of addresses and efficient route aggregation. What you learned and used with IPv4 may not work as you might think with IPv6.

This session will review IPv4 address planning and then guide you through preparing an IPv6 address plan.
