Pre-XXX ARIN Policy Update

With the Autumnal Equinox behind us, fall is in the air and that means we are nearing the next ARIN PPM: ARIN XXX! It will be held 24-26 October 2012 in Dallas, TX. Of course an impending ARIN Public Policy Meeting means that it’s time for me to provide a policy update, so, here it is! […]

WTF is SDN?

Buzzword alert! Like “Cloud” before it, “SDN” is quickly becoming all the rage, and, just like your favorite Gotye song – it’s overplayed. Also like “cloud”, SDN has some potentially very interesting (if not entirely new or well defined) implications. In this first-for-me post on SDN I will try to take a pragmatic look at what SDN actually is.

First Ever CO ISOC IPv6 Event!

I have to say, I’m more than a little excited! The Colorado Chapter of the Internet Society (CO ISOC) is hosting our very first IPv6 event – and it’s shaping up to be quite outstanding (if I do say so myself). The stage will be filled with the likes of Scott Hogg, Jeff Doyle, Cricket […]

IPv6 Subnetting – The Paradigm Shift

Almost every conversation I have with folks just learning about IPv6 goes about the same way; once I’m finally able to convince them that IPv6 is not going away and is needed in their network, the questions start. One of the most practical and essential early questions that needs to be asked (but often isn’t) […]

A Chat with Vint Cerf

Vint Cerf is an Internet Pioneer. As one of the fathers of the Internet, he likely needs little introduction, so I’ll be brief: In addition to co-designing TCP/IP, he has written or contributed to 43 IETF RFCs. In 1992 he helped found the Internet Society (ISOC). From 2000 to 2007 Vint served as the chairman […]

As a member of the ARIN Advisory Council (AC), I have to stay up to date on all of the goings on in the world of ARIN policy development (that’s kind of the point of the AC). These policy changes affect many people but are fairly hard to keep track of for most (most engineers […]
