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 through advocacy, membership, certification, and learning resources for its base of internet protocol engineering members.
Silva Hagen who has presented at the North American IPv6 Summit and the gogoNET Live! events in the past is hosting on June 11, 2013 in Zurich Switzerland the IPv6 Business Conference. It has a great line up of speakers and if it works out for you to attend it would be worth your time!

Join us November 12-14 in San Jose (venue still pending) to learn how to deploy IPv6. The theme of this year’s conference is “Enterprise Wide Migration – a Holistic Approach”. Learn how to go v6 from ISP, Enterprise and Government perspectives. Day 1 will consist of technical hands-on workshops and tutorials organized and co-hosted by CAv6tf. Days 2 and 3 will consist of case studies, presentations and discussions from those who have been there before.
June 6th is only a week away. We hope everyone is aware of the fact that it is World IPv6 Launch. The goal is for folks on the Internet to turn on IPv6 and leave it on. This is the first in a long list of steps to help the adoption of IPv6. Check out the World IPv6 Launch website for details. If you see a swimming turtle on our site – congratulations – you are accessing our site via IPv6!
The registration site is still open for the North American IPv6 Summit but you are running out of time to sign up. The NA IPv6 Summit is the largest IPv6 event in North America and has an amazing list of presenters this year. If you are at all interested in IPv6 and who wouldn’t be, (You are aware of the depletion issue with IPv4 aren’t you and World IPv6 Launch scheduled for 6/6/12?) then you should be attending this event. The conference is only $500US for two packed days of sessions. The conference has some serious sponsorship backers too:
Infoblox, Cisco, HP, BlueCat Networks, A10 Networks, TW Telecom, CenturyLink, Juniper, Comcast, Fortinet, Gigamon and others.
It runs April 10th to the 11th in Denver, CO. There is an optional pre-conference on April 9th that has basic and advanced IPv6 hands on training. See the registration site for details. To top it all off, Nephos6, with the IPv6 Forum, are offering complimentary IPv6 Forum Certified Engineer testing at the conference. If you would like to test your IPv6 knowledge and show what you know about IPv6, you can register to take their 1-hour exam during April 10th or April 11th during the conference – how cool is that?
If IPv6 has been on your to do list or you have said you need to get up to speed on IPv6 then this is your answer. Come join us in Denver!
The registration site is now open for the North American IPv6 Summit. The NA IPv6 Summit is hosted by the Rocky Mountain IPv6 Task Force who traditionally have hosted the largest IPv6 event in North America. They have been kind enough to extend the event to include all the other IPv6 Task Forces across North America. If you are interested in IPv6 at all and want a chance to hear from top experts about their experiences in deploying IPv6 then this is the event to attend. The NA IPv6 Summit is April 9th to the 11th in Denver, CO.
Join us November 1-3 at San Jose State University to be part of the movement to IPv6. The theme of this year’s conference is “Trials & Tribulations”. With the question of IPv4 depletion behind us gogoNET LIVE! 2 will focus is on the technical details of how to do an IPv6 trial. Day 1 will consist of technical hands-on workshops. Days 2 and 3 will consist of case studies from those who have successfully completed IPv6 trials and functional presentations on the steps required to do an IPv6 field trial.
The second annual gogoNETLive! event is happening November 1-3, 2011 at San Jose State University in Silicon Valley in Northern California. This will be the only dedicated IPv6 conference happening on the west coast and the CAv6TF is happy to be co-sponsoring and helping. The event is fast approaching so we encourage folks to sign up at registration page.
The line up of speakers in impressive and if you sign up in time you can get a slot for the hands on labs happening the first day. We look forward to meeting folks at the event!

June 8th 2011 is designated as world IPv6 day. For most people it’s going to be a relatively uneventful day. However, for those who advocate the use of IPv6, it’s going to be a very exciting day. Essentially it’s a test drive that’s sponsored by the Internet Society and a number of large organizations.
Here’s How It Works
When you look up a web site on the internet a DNS resolution occurs. The record that’s returned is called an “A” record. In IPv6 the record is called a “AAAA” record. On World IPv6 day “AAAA” records will be enabled for those participating in the test drive. If you are using IPv6 you will be able to resolve and access these organizations using the new “AAAA” record.
