California IPv6 Task Force

Welcome to the California IPv6 Task Force website, a volunteer Not-For-Profit 501(c)3 organization. The California IPv6 Task Force (CAv6TF) is devoted to IPv6 use, education, and deployment in the Western United States through advocacy, membership, certification, and learning resources for its base of internet protocol engineering members. We work closely with Rocky Mountain IPv6 Task Force conducting speaking engagements and events in support of IPv6 Adoption.

IPv6 Allocation Best Practices

I have been receiving frequent questions around IPv6 allocations as of late which is a good indicator that more enterprises are researching IPv6 adoption at the fringe. Take some time to review the ARIN wiki IPv6 allocation best practices to make sure your IPv6 deployment goes smoothly.

NETWORKING @SCALE – Briefing

FacebookEventSCALE_20160511ACAv6tf attended Facebook’s “NETWORKING @SCALE” invite-only event this Tuesday and Wednesday where engineers and scientists from multiple companies collaborated on ways to build and manage large-scale service networks for millions of users and applications that are built upon the next generation Internet.

Marking Facebook’s 2nd anniversary of this event, we heard presentations regarding Software Defined Networking, 60GHz wireless networks, creation of new routing protocols, and convergence of servers,  switching, and routing to solve complex engineering challenges.  Engineers from Facebook, Akamai, Juniper, and Comcast, to name a few, were badged and in attendance.

At this week’s event, Facebook’s research division presented their recently announced Terragraph and ARIES terrestrial connectivity projects and shared some of the engineering challenges they have overcome in order to deliver consistently high-bandwidth internet experiences for the underserved internet users located around the globe.

Also, NASA JPL Scientist, Dr. Luther Beegle, was in attendance to present network and operational challenges in InterPlanetary Networking (IPN).   His work on the Mars Future Rover plans for 2020 Launch highlighted the networks required to connect and conduct work for the SHERLOC spectrometer optical system.  Latency and intermittent communication loss are important store-and-forward problems network operators must deal with both on Mars and here on Earth. Much to the enjoyment of all attendees, Dr. Beegle discussed his project and networking methods used in orbital networking.

You can check out the abstract for Facebook’s Terragraph/ARIES project here.

California IPv6 Task Force Meetup At LinkedIn

6-11-2015 09-30-01Join the California IPv6 Task Force at the LinkedIn offices on Monday, June 15 to learn all about how they deployed IPv6. This is a great chance to learn all about how they did it from the LinkedIn team directly and ask questions and get advise!

Hit the Meetup site at http://www.meetup.com/CAv6TF/events/222827750/ to register. It is from 4-7pm. LinkedIn’s offices are not far from the Open Network Summit event in Santa Clara so feel free to swing by after that if you would like to join (you can do surface streets the whole way and avoid the trouble of 237 too).

Looking forward to meeting others interested in IPv6.

gogoNET Live! 5 – Silicon Valley IPv6 Conference, Nov 19-20

gognetlive5_2014Join us
November 19-20, 2014 in Sunnyvale, California to be part of the movement to IPv6 & the Internet of Things. The California IPv6 Task Force together with GogoNET Live! hosts our fifth annual IPv6 focused conference in the Bay Area.  The conference revolves around networking for IPv6, the Internet of Things and sensory networking and how the three are intrinsically related. With a new “invite only” venue format for CAv6TF members, learn how organizations IPv6-enable their web services, how to advocate IPv6 in your organization, and how IPv6 business drivers are pushing the envelope for IPv6 adoption.  Whether you want to use IPv6 to connect people or things come join us to learn state of the art networking technology from the experts leading the way.  Virtual passes are also available!

The high level conference agenda will be:
• Nov. 19: Sensors, actuators, Lossy Sensor, and IoT Platforms
• Nov. 20: IPv6 DDoS, Application Protocols, and IoT Dev

** Alert: the website has been updated with the newest agenda and the event looks to be great so register at http://gogonetlive.com  – There is also the virtual attendance option – watch live via video stream via the Internet.
