North American IPv6 Task Force

Welcome to the North American IPv6 Task Force website.

The North American IPv6 Task Force (NAv6TF) is a sub-chapter of the IPv6 Forum dedicated to the advancement and propagation of IPv6 (Internet Protocol, version 6) in the North American continent. Comprised of individual members, rather than corporate sponsors, the NAv6TF mission is to provide technical leadership and innovative thought for the successful integration of IPv6 into all facets of networking and telecommunications infrastructure, present and future.

Through its continued facilitation of technical and business case whitepapers, IPv6 certifications, IPv6-centric conferences, IPv6 test and interoperability events, IPv6 deployment readiness guides, and collaboration with IPv6 task forces from around the globe, the NAv6TF will strive to be the guiding force for IPv6 adoption and readiness in the U.S., Canada and Mexico.

The North American IPv6 Task Force continues to thrive thanks to Jim Bound (2009) and his initial vision of IPv6 adoption and Moonv6 (now Boundv6).  Jim’s passing was a difficult loss for IPv6 advocates.  Bound was a Senior Fellow with HP, Chair of the North American IPv6 Task Force and CTO of the IPv6 Forum.  With passion, perseverance, and inspiration, Jim headed our movement and weaved the social fabric which brought us together. We continue to pursue Jim Bound’s visionary goal of IPv6 Deployment through our voluntary membership of leaders eager to innovate around the inevitable adoption of IPng.  The journey is the reward Jim and each of us thank you for inviting us on your flight.

Press Release: The 7th Annual North American IPv6 Summit Welcomes Infoblox as Their Premier Sponsor

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 The 7th Annual North American IPv6 Summit Welcomes Infoblox as Their Premier Sponsor

Denver, CO – July 8, 2014 – The 7th Annual North American IPv6 Technology Summit welcomes Infoblox as the premier sponsor. The theme of this year’s summit is Putting IPv6 to Work.

Infoblox delivers appliance-based solutions for secure, business-critical DNS, DHCP, and IP Address Management (DDI) and Network Automation. Over 7,300 global enterprises and service providers use Infoblox to control their networks.

“Organizations are finally ready to move IPv6 into large-scale deployments after years of testing and pilot projects,” said Cricket Liu, Chief Infrastructure Officer at Infoblox. “The North American IPv6 Technology Summit is one of the best places for IT networking professionals to learn how to make the jump from IPv6 as a theory to putting IPv6 to work.”

As the premier sponsor, Infoblox will be hosting the Keynote Speaker, Tom Coffeen, an industry expert at Infoblox, IPv6 evangelist and 17-year veteran of production internetwork design, deployment, administration, and management, as well as the author of “IPv6 Address Planning,” just published by O’Reilly.

“Infoblox has been a strong supporter of our event for the past few years,” states Ognian Mitev, Chairman of the Rocky Mountain IPv6 Task Force and host of the Summit. “They bring a wealth of experience and products to the networking community that serves as the foundation for successful deployments.”

In the past, the goal of the Summit has been to educate and provide outreach to help companies deploy IPv6. This year, the emphasis will focus on successful large-scale projects deployed over IPv6 which address the power of the network and simplifying networking deployments, focusing on strong IPAM solutions and ironclad DNS and DHCP services, like those enabled by Infoblox.

In addition to the keynote speaker, industry professionals will present case studies and best practices on implementing IPv6 in business networks with a focus on transitioning to single-stack IPv6. Security and addressing will also be covered, providing attendees with additional tools for IPv6 deployment. A new track this year will touch on Software Defined Networks (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NfV). These new paradigms have generated significant interest in the networking world.

The North American Summit will be held on September 24-25 at the Grand Hyatt in Denver, Colorado. A 2-day conference pass is $300 through August 15, with Student Pricing at $75.

In addition to the Summit, optional Training Sessions will be offered, for an additional fee, on September 23, featuring three sessions: Introduction to IPv6, Advanced IPv6, and a hands-on tutorial to Build Your Own IPv6 Lab.

A new feature to the 2014 event is a Virtual Trade Show. Registrants have the option to attend the event in person, or sign up for the Virtual Event with live streaming of speakers, plus access to sponsors.

To register for the event, and for all the details, please visit the Rocky Mountain IPv6 Task Force website at http://www.rmv6tf.org
