Free Light Reading Webinar Feb 8th: Making the IPv6 Transition For Cable

By Dan YorkDirector, Internet Technology

If you have 90 minutes to spare tomorrow, Wednesday, February 8, 2012, the folks over at Light Reading are offering a free (see below) webinar at 1:00 pm US Eastern on the topic of “Making the IPv6 Transition For Cable“.  It is sponsored by Arris, Cisco, Juniper Networks and Motorola, and more importantly has an expert panel of people from the cable industry:

  • John Brzozowski, Distinguished Engineer & Chief Architect for IPv6, Comcast
  • Jeff Finkelstein, Senior Director, Network Architecture, Cox Communications
  • Lee Howard, Director of Network Technology, Time Warner Cable

Given that we know these folks ourselves, we expect their contributions to the webinar to provide solid information and case studies for other cable operators and service providers.  The webinar will also apparently include presenters from the various sponsors who will probably provide their perspective on how their various products and services can help with the IPv6 transition.

Due note that this webinar is “free” in the sense that there is no direct financial cost. As is typical of these type of sponsored webinars, you do, of course, need to provide information about yourself that will then be provided to the sponsors for their marketing efforts.

Regardless of that fact, I expect that there will be some quite useful IPv6 information available during the session and I’ll be personally joining in for at least the first hour of the session. I expect, although don’t know for certain, that there will be a recording available for later viewing (subject, again, to providing all your contact information).

It’s great to see these kind of sessions out there as we get closer and closer to World IPv6 Launch on June 6th!

The folks at Light Reading also produced a brief video providing a preview of some of the topics and people involved with tomorrow’s webinar:

P.S. Hat tip to Stephen Liu over on Cisco’s blog where we saw mention of this webinar.
