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.
Presented the ARIN community slide deck and met some great new network engineering friends (9:50am) at Tech Junction in Sacramento California today. As promised to the thirty plus folks who attended, here is the link for the ARIN page that contains the ARIN slide deck from my preso. You can find the deck under the “IPv6 Background” section fifth bullet point down titled “ARIN IPv4 Exhaustion Community Use Slide Deck”. Special thanks to MCPc for offering up your speaking slot to a grateful not-for-profit.
Bruce Sinclair is now hosting a Podcast called The IPv6 Show and it is worth checking out if you want to hear him talk to some of the best IPv6 experts in the world. Already on the show he has interviewed Jeff Doyle, Scott Hogg, Joe Klein and Rene Paap.

Hats off to the folks at Comcast as you can now test to see if your Comcast Internet connection is IPv6 ready. If you are a Comcast customer, just head on over to http://www.comcast6.net/ to see their friendly status page!
Thank you again Comcast for making this quick check available and for advocating the deployment of IPv6!
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!
