We asked you to tell us about your IPv6 deployment journey at your own organization via an open survey. Out of more than 150 responses, we collected some interesting information that you may enjoy hearing more about.
This past week, ARIN joined forces with the Latin America and Caribbean Network Information Centre (LACNIC) for the Caribbean Association of National Telecommunication Organizations’ (CANTO) 32nd Annual Conference & Trade Exhibition in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
ARIN reached the true technical IPv4 Exhaustion on September 24, 2015. Yet back in 2012, I believe that I created and taught the first ever college course held in the United States that was devoted exclusively to IPv6, a summer course at Finger Lakes Community College.
During my time as an ARIN Fellow, I learned that Internet number resource policies in the ARIN region are developed entirely by the community. Every word of the Number Resource Policy Manual (NRPM) undergoes rigorous examination in a transparent, community-driven, bottom-up policy development process.
To assist and ensure all eligible member organizations are prepared to vote during ARIN Elections, our team is currently leading an extensive Voting Contact clean-up campaign.
Large scale IPv6 deployments suggest that IPv6 is at least a technical success – the technology works. Now it’s time to visit the other important question: does it work commercially? Does IPv6 really come with a positive business case?
