The Rocky Mountain 2011 IPv6 Summit is here again!

The ISOC Colorado Chapter is pleased once again to sponsor a booth at the annual Rocky Mountain 2011 IPv6 Summit.

Over 400 networking professionals; including, leading systems architects, technical engineers, and researchers will be in attendance.

This is the 4th annual event for the Rocky Mountain IPv6 Task Force.  There is an even greater sense of urgency concerning the transition to Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) than ever before. Why the increased urgency?  Check out this recent announcement:

At a ceremony held on 3 February, 2011 the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) allocated the remaining last five /8s of IPv4 address space to the Regional Internet Registries (RIRs) in accordance with theGlobal Policy for the Allocation of the Remaining IPv4 Address Space. With this action, the free pool of available IPv4 addresses is now fully depleted.

There is much work and education that needs to take place in order for there to be a wider adoption of IPv6.  Implementations are likely to accelerate.  What is your organization doing to address the inevitable transition?  This summit is a great way to learn more and network with other professionals engaged in IPv6 adoption.  Here are more reasons to attend the Rocky Mountain 2011 IPv6 Summit:

Why Attend:

  • To learn about IPv6 to gain practical information to help you with your IPv6 transition
  • To help your organization with their government mandate or business requirement for IPv6
