Some IPv6 podcast content and events

I have been lucky enough to be featured on a couple of podcasts recently around IPv6. The first is one I recorded for Interop New York. You can find that one at https://soundcloud.com/technologyadvice/interop-speaker-ed-horley

I will be presenting at Interop in New York so if you will be in the area I invite you to attend the show and please come see my session:
IPv6 Bootcamp - Get Up to Speed Quickly

You can get a 25% discount on the event or a free expo pass, just jump from the banner below and you should be set.


The second is me as a guest on the PowerScripting Podcast - episode 283. Huge thank you to Hal Rottenberg and Jonathan Walz for inviting me to participate, I had a blast. Get the swimming turtle!


I had a few errors in the podcast that I wanted to correct. First, ULA (Unique Local Addresses) are from the fc00::/7 prefix and the useable space is fd00::/8. To clarify, VLSM (variable length subnet masking) in conjunction with CIDR (Classless Inter Domain Routing) are complimentary and what enabled better utilization of IPv4 address space along with more granular routing of address blocks. Third, the M flag in the RA is for Managed and not Manual. I am bad about saying manual when I really mean managed so apologies about that. I think the rest was pretty much on target.

There is still time to sign up for the North American IPv6 Summit hosted by the Rocky Mountain IPv6 Task Force in Denver, CO. It is the premier IPv6 event in North America for sure and the list of speakers is a who's who of the IPv6 world. I'll be attending and helping out by providing free time to review through an IPv6 Address Planning worksheet. If you are interested in IPv6 at all and have the time, please come join me.

Finally, the California IPv6 Task Force is having our quarterly meeting next Weds, Sept 17th at the Cisco campus in San Jose. You can find details on our meetup site. The event is open for anyone to attend, simply RSVP so we know how many folks to expect.
