INET Denver: IPv4 Exhaustion and the Path to IPv6

‹ Back
Don’t miss this opportunity to join IPv6 networking professionals from across North America, who will attend to learn the latest on IPv4 exhaustion and how to transition to IPv6.  The INET Denver agenda will bring together top experts in the networking field to discuss the latest on IPv4 exhaustion in our market, and the TCO of IPv6.
1:00 – 1:15
Opening Remarks
Welcome remarks from the founding Chair of the Colorado Chapter of the Internet Society, Chris Grundemann
1:15 – 1:45
IPv4 Exhaustion Update
1:45 – 2:15
IPv4 Exhaustion at ARIN
John Curran, ARIN
Mr. Curran will discuss the immediate problem of IPv4 depletion, including the latest global trends and statistics from the ARIN region.  He will show how the dwindling supply of IPv4 will limit the Internet’s growth and articulate the importance of implementing IPv6.
2:15 – 3:15
Address Policy Workshop
Panel Discussion
Owen Delong, Hurricane Electric
Einar Bohlin, ARIN
This session will introduce ARIN policies for IPv4 and IPv6 and explain what tools are available in policy to meet your addressing needs. While no amount of policy will change the fact that the world is running out of available IPv4 addresses, there are many tools in ARIN policy for obtaining what you can from the remaining IPv4 address pool as well as making it very easy to get IPv6 addresses in support of migration.
We will cover obtaining IPv4 addresses directly from ARIN (while they are still available), the Address Transfer policies (and legitimate transfers within policy), and most importantly, IPv6 policies and how to go about obtaining a proper liberal allocation of IPv6 addresses for your deployment.
This session is intended to be interactive, so come with your number policy questions and don’t be shy.
3:15 – 3:30
3:30 – 5:00
Evaluation of Current Transfer Market
Panel Discussion
Lee Howard, Time Warner Cable
Peter Thimmesch, Addrex, Inc.
Louis Sterchi, Kalorama
Dr. Patrick Ryan, Google
Allan MacGillivray, Canadian Internet Registration Authority
This panel of industry experts will discuss the ins and outs of the nascent IPv4 address (and ASN) transfer market(s) and provide the audience with an inside look into address policy’s hottest topic. How do Internet number transfers work? Who is eligible to transfer IPv4 addresses and ASNs? What is an address broker? How much do IPv4 addresses cost? Are prices expected to increase? What does this mean to IPv6 adoption? What does it all mean to me? From the number resource policies that define it to the motivations that fuel it, this interactive panel discussion aims to answer all of your questions regarding the Internet number transfer market.
5:00 – 5:30
TCO of IPv6
Lee Howard, Time Warner Cable
An in-depth look at the total costs of IPv4-IPv6 transition, from a leading industry expert – Lee Howard.  Mr. Howard will present the latest on the total cost of ownership of Carrier-Grade NAT (CGN), costs of running dual-stack IPv4-IPv6, and potential costs of buying addresses.
5:30 – 6:00
Internet Society Initiatives & How to get involved
Paul Brigner & Richard Jimmerson
Learn the latest on key Internet Society initiatives such as the Deploy 360 program from Richard Jimmerson, the Internet Society’s Director of Deployment & Operationalization.  And, hear how you can join the Internet Society’s efforts to promote the open development, evolution, and use of the Internet for the benefit of all people throughout the world.
6:00 – 7:30
