If we are to believe the figures being banded around, the Internet looks set to be dominated by the number of devices connecting under the ‘Internet of Things’ banner at some point over the coming years. If there’s any domination of the Internet before then it is arguably by cats – cat photos, cat videos, pretty much cat anything. I actually think there’s room for both though in the form of Internet-enabled cat feeders…
Lately there has been some remarkably bad advice circulating that suggests companies would be better off delaying their IPv6 deployment – effectively deferring their IPv6 efforts until there’s no other option. Deferring the roll out of IPv6 while the Internet is moving ahead with IPv6 is a flawed strategy with serious impacts to your business.
Webpass’ network is 100% dual-stacked and running on a Brocade CER and MLXe platform so setting up the IP circuit was as simple as: 1. Adding an IPv4 /30 and an IPv6 /64 for connectivity between networks. 2. Statically routing ARIN’s netblocks with the next-hop being the Webpass WAN IPs. 3. Redistributing the static routes into our OSPF and OSPFv3 tables
On the final day of ARIN 35 in San Francisco we wrapped up with a Members Meeting that was open to the entire ARIN community – onsite and online. Throughout the morning we heard an update on the ARIN fees and services and took questions and comments from attendees. We received departmental reports from Communications and Member Services, Engineering, Financial Services, Human Resources and Administration, and Registration Services.
Thanks for joining us for our second daily recap about what happened today at ARIN 35. Kicking off the morning, we heard updates from the Number Resource Organization (NRO) comprising the five Regional Internet Registries (RIRs). We also viewed many worldwide Internet number resources statistics on ASN, IPv4, and IPv6 allocations and assignments.
Today ARIN’s Public Policy Meeting took place in the Golden Gate City bringing together Internet community members from across the region and around the globe to talk about the policies that determine how Internet number resources are distributed. To start the day off, we heard from the Advisory Council Chair about on-docket proposals.
