Why Is Microsoft Internal IT Moving to IPv6-Only?

Take a look at Veronika McKillop’s slide to help us understand why her teams at Microsoft are moving to IPv6 Only networks for Internal IT use.

IMG_3497

Microsoft currently has two test IPv6-Only networks in Redmond, WA and also recognized that IPv6 adoption will be supported because of the well known “Microsoft effect” which posits that 85% of global laptop/desktops are windows based IPv6 capable coupled with the fact that millions of devices (ie: servers, Xbox, tables, HoloLens) are designed for IPv6 networks.

The NAv6TF Meeting is happening today and tomorrow in Sunnyvale, CA

Today and tomorrow, people from around the continent are gathering in Sunnyvale, CA to hear more about the status of the migration of the Internet to IPv6. Over 100 people are registered for the event.

After the event, there will be recordings of the talks available for anyone to listen to posted. More details on that will be made available at a later day.

There are several folks attending here from Texas and I am glad to see them.

John Curran NAv6tf Presentation

John Curran’s presentations are always lively, educational and wholly interactive (especially during Q&A).  Today’s presentation at LinkedIn’s Sunnyvale Headquarters was no exception to the rule as John focused on how to build a better IPv6 internet that users will actually be interested in using.  He also reviewed challenges associated with enterprise IPv6 adoption delays.

IPv6_NA_CONF_2017_web_090

His first point discussed ideas on changing the fundamentals of network governance in IPv6 and how it could virtually eliminate botnets, spam, and general NAT headaches.  Notably, those changes and choices would also eliminate a lion-share of demand and spending for boundary security solutions used by many enterprises today.

Moreover, he posited that when considering the end-user perspective on today’s Internet that, “It does not matter what you do [as engineers], the average internet user still sees the same thing when they login [and it’s not the network engineer’s work that moves them].”

He continued by pointing to the attendees in the room reminding us of our accountability and that we, “…are the ones building a new internet on IPv6 yet running it the same way that we ran the IPv4 Internet.”  True, many network engineers, especially in enterprises, are seasoned with v4 habits such as straining to conserve IP addresses.  As such, we run the risk of doing too much subnet-ing with IPv6 resulting in a loss of operational visibility by breaking the rules of nibble boundaries.  Considering most assignment blocks will be assigned as a /32 or /44 with plenty of address space to spare, we really have no excuse to do things incorrectly.

From our perspective, this just proves that we still have a heck a lot of work to do educating network engineers if IPv6 adoption is going to happen at the enterprise level.

A Few More Details on the Upcoming 2017 NAv6TF Conference

Some more on the upcoming event.

At this year’s IPv6 Summit event we will celebrate all that has been accomplished regarding IPv6 deployment.  We will also discuss the remaining challenges for IPv6 adoption.  The IPv6 Summit event this year will focus on the accomplishments that have been made in recent years that have driven the accelerating growth in IPv6 Internet traffic.  The event would like to celebrate the hard work performed by broadband service providers, mobile carriers, online content providers, content distribution networks, equipment manufacturers, operating system manufacturers, and numerous others.

Following are a list of topics that we would like the presentations to cover:

  • Examples of exemplary IPv6 adoption
  • Best practices for IPv6 deployment and promotion of IPv6 adoption
  • Methods that have driven increased usage of IPv6
  • Current IPv6 adoption trends and future projections of IPv6 growth
  • Tasks remaining for the IPv6 community, challenges for IPv6, next steps
  • Furthering IPv6 deployment in enterprise networks
  • Examples of how IPv6-only environments are being used

There will be a single-track of presentations through the 2-days.

Happy New Year 2017

On behalf of the board of TXv6TF, I want to wish everyone a happy, safe and productive 2017. So much has happened in the IPv6 world since our first meeting in 2009. In the US, IPv6 deployments continue to accelerate as organizations refresh their networks and Service Providers improve their service offerings.

This is happening around the world as well at different rates (some faster than the US, some slower). Today, I can use resources that run totally over IPv6, some are mixed and a shrinking few are still IPv4 only. I hope to see that last group fade quickly as the days pass.

As for the plans for 2017, watch this space!

Happy New Year 2016!

I want to wish all readers a Happy New Year!

I wanted to let you all know that we had an important change in 2015. Stephan Lagerholm, who founded TXv6TF with me, has moved on to new opportunities. Replacing him is Jeff Carrell who was elected to the board and serves in 2016 as Vice Chairman.

We hope to have more to share with what we are planning for 2016.
