IPv6 Boot Camp Comes To Interop New York

IPv6 expert Ed Horley will conduct an IPv6 boot camp to provide practical deployment steps for IT pros.

The transition to IPv6 is inevitable. If you’re wondering where to start, one good place is Ed Horley’s IPv6 Boot Camp session at Interop New York 2014.

Horley spoke with TechnologyAdvice host Clark Buckner about what’s cooking at the boot camp, the challenges around IPv6, and what resources are available so IT pros can learn more about how to get IPv6 up and running in their networks.

While the technology community has known for many years that IPv6 migration is inevitable, many IT pros still have questions. Horley will discuss essential details, including where IPv6 is and isn’t enabled in multiple operating systems, the protocol’s default behaviors, and potential security implications.

He’ll also share tips on how to bring IPv6 into a lab environment so folks can get familiar with it, and provide details for tactical deployment in production networks.

As an advocate for IPv6 education, Horley aims to make his session very practical. As he notes in the interview, people often ask him at speaking events how to ramp up with IPv6. At Interop, he’ll share specific steps. “Once you have my deck, you’ll know exactly what to do to go out and get going.”

Horley stays up-to date with developments in this technology by actively participating in the California IPv6 Task Force, the North American IPv6 Task Force, the Rocky Mountain IPv6 Summit, and the Texas IPv6 Summit.

Horley has also provided resources for those who want to learn more about IPv6. At the top of the list is the IPv6 Forum. Another great resource is ARIN’s wiki site for IPv6.

If you’d like to get your feet wet with IPv6, Hurricane Electric runs a free IPv6 tunneling service. Software tunnel clients for a Windows, OS X, and Linux are available from gogo6.

There’s also an extensive number of books available to help get you up to speed. Here’s a short list:

· IPv6 Essentials, Second Edition by Silva Hagen (O’Reilly Press, 2006)

· Practical IPv6 for Windows Administrators by Ed Horley (Apress, 2013)

· IPv6 in Enterprise Networks by Shannon McFarland, Muninder Sambi, Nikhil Sharma, and Sanjay Hooda (Cisco Press, 2011)

· IPv6 Fundamentals: A Straightforward Approach to Understanding IPv6 by Rick Graziani (Cisco Press, 2012)
