ANNOUNCEMENT: PLUG Advanced Topics April Meeting

IPv6 Networking with Ted Mittelstaedt: Part 1

The first in a multi-part series on IPv6 networking by Ted Mittelstaedt,
the author of The FreeBSD Corporate Networker's Guide.

Part 1: Theory & management & ISP routing, as well as current events in
the IPv6 realm. For example, did you know that Nortel just sold
Microsoft a huge chunk of IPv4 legacy addresses for something like 7
million dollars? This has really turned the tables on the game. Up until
that happened the thought in the community was that the large ISP's
would be the biggest pushers of IPv6 deployment. But this is an early
indicator of what's going to happen. The large ISPs are going to spend
millions in vacuuming every scrap of IPv4 out of all the corners on the
Internet before they will start pushing their users to go to IPv6. That
is a serious problem for any small ISP that does not have a stock of
IPv4 because they will be run out of numbers and new customers will not
be interested in their IPv6 offerings as long as the large ISPs still
are handing IPv4 out.

Where: Free Geek, 1731 SE 10th Avenue
