We meet at 6:30pm on the second Tuesday of each month at the Farmington Community Library.
IPv6: 20 years old and more than ready
ARIN (who allocates IP addresses for North America) handed out its last IPv4 address in September, 2015. To put that in perspective, ARIN handed out 26 million IPv4 addresses in 2014 and its peak was over 57 million in 2008. With cloud computing and hosting continuing to soar in popularity, where will new IPv4 addresses come from? Will this stimulate IPv6 adoption? How does the emerging Internet of Things and mobile factor into this? In this talk we will assess the industry status and talk about IPv4/IPv6 deployment options. Time will be devoted to analyzing various tactics and strategies including what makes sense for IPv6 deployments and when to perform them.
