Making the Transition: The Latest on IPv4 and IPv6

Time 11/03/10 08:45AM-10:00AM

Session Abstract

The available pool of IPv4 address space has reached a critical level. At current distribution rates, there is less than one year until the IANA free pool of IPv4 fully depletes.

With only about 6% of IPv4 addresses remaining, organizations should already be taking steps to prepare for IPv6 to avoid growth and scaling issues down the road.

While IPv6 will help lead the development and deployment of next-generation, IP-based networks and services, many companies have been slow to adopt IPv6 for various reasons, such as the cost in time and money to move to an IPv6 system, and the need for bridging technology to make IPv4 and IPv6 systems compatible.

In this session, Richard Jimmerson, CIO of the American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN), will provide an update of the IPv4 depletion issue and will describe the steps all network administrators should be taking to prepare for the transition.

Richard will also summarize recent policy changes and how they impact the Internet2 community. Descriptions of new efforts at ARIN, such as DNSSEC, RPKI, and RESTful services will be included.
