[email protected], Day 5: The Big Goodbye

Kevin Meynell
By Kevin MeynellSenior Manager, Technical and Operational Engagement

There’s a couple of sessions of interest on the last day of IETF 98 before we say goodbye to the Windy City.

Both are running in parallel on the Friday morning starting at 09.00 CDT/UTC-6, but perhaps of most interest to us is IPWAVE. This is working to develop a mechanism for transmitting IPv6 datagrams over IEEE 802.11-OCB which is specified as the wireless link for vehicular networks. It will also review a survey on IP-based vehicular networking, and consider a problem statement for vehicle-to-infrastructure networking.


NOTE: If you are unable to attend IETF 98 in person, there are multiple ways to participate remotely.


Nevertheless, IDR has an interesting draft on its agenda. This aims to make route servers aware of data link failures at IXPs as peers can lose data connectivity without the control plane being aware of it. This draft proposes a way for peers verify connectivity amongst themselves, and communicate knowledge of any failures back to the route server.

That brings this IETF to an end, so it’s goodbye from us in Chicago. Many thanks for reading along this week… please do read our other IETF 98-related posts … and we’ll see you at IETF 99 on 16-21 July 2017 in Prague, Czech Republic!
