Ready or Not, IPv6 is Here: Preparing Your Linux Networks for IPv6


In this educational session, John Curran, President and CEO of ARIN will discuss how Linux IT professionals can prepare for IPv6, the benefits of adopting now, and the available resources to help communicate the value of IPv6 to their organizations.

With less than 10% of IPv4 address space remaining, it is extremely urgent that all organizations adopt IPv6 – the next generation of IP technology – before time runs out and the global Internet community is fragmented.

Some Linux IT professionals have been slow to adopt IPv6, and have yet to fully understand the benefits and ease of the deployment. With fewer resources on the Web regarding IPv6 and Linux, it is important for attendees to learn why IPv6 is necessary.

In this session, John Curran, President and CEO of the American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN), will discuss how attendees need to prepare for IPv4 depletion challenges, key considerations for IPv6 adoption, and the benefits of early IPv6 adoption. The session will provide attendees with the information and tools needed to ease their technical and business concerns of adopting IPv6.

John will also focus on open-source software implementations of IPv6 and how to make the transition as seamless as possible. He will highlight educational resources available to help Linux IT professionals to better understand and communicate the value of IPv6 to their organizations.

ARIN is the nonprofit corporation that manages the distribution of Internet number resources, including IPv4 and IPv6 addresses and Autonomous System Numbers (ASNs), to Canada, many Caribbean and North Atlantic islands, and the United States.
