I was planning on writing this great breakthrough piece on IPv6 subnet sizes, like how many /48s are in a /32 or how many /56s are in a /24, etc… But then I stumbled across a great PDF from ARIN and realized that all the work was already done. So I ended up not posting […]
There are folks who have, in the past, cried wolf with regard to IPv4 free pool depletion and the need for IPv6 adoption. Different people had different reasons for doing so and some were likely ulterior. Since then, all of the reputable folks focusing on IPv6 deployment have removed these alarmists and distanced themselves from […]
Here we go again! As what might be my last act as a “regular” member of the ARIN community, I have decided to launch a discussion petition of ARIN-prop-125, Efficient Utilization of IPv4 Requires Dual-Stack.
I have been asked to present draft policy 2010-14 to the ARIN Government Working Group (AGWG) during their meeting tomorrow morning. The proposed policy formally codifies many best current practices for IPv4 reassignment registration and fills in many holes in current IPv6 WHOIS policy as well.
ARIN XXV is fast approaching, which means that it is time for me to catch up on PPML posts and organize my thoughts surrounding the current proposals and impending issues. This is especially true for this meeting since I have a couple proposals of my own up for discussion at this meeting. Draft Policy 2010-5 […]
Day One: Exploring IPv6 is a primer on IPv6 in JUNOS, it is targeted towards readers who are new to IPv6 or new to JUNOS but have a solid networking background. “This guide is easy to follow and is an easy-to-digest tutorial on getting your feet wet in IPv6.”
The annual Rocky Mountain IPv6 Summit (RMv6 Summit) put on by the Rocky Mountain IPv6 Task Force (RMv6TF) is shaping up to be another great event this year. I attended both of the previous (2008 & 2009) RMv6 Summits and have thoroughly enjoyed every single session. I learned much more than I expected at each […]
Those of you tuned in to Internet policy are surely aware of the upcoming meeting of an ITU group on IPv6 that will be discussing WTSA Resolution 64 – IP address allocation and encouraging the deployment of IPv6. Unfortunately, I have been extremely busy with some other far less exciting projects and have not found […]
Hurricane Electric announces a free iPhone App, Webpage Widget, and Google and Windows Desktop Gadgets that report the growth of IPv6 deployment and the exhaustion of IPv4.
