Five Steps to Meeting the IPv6 Deadline

The September 30 IPv6 deadline is quickly approaching and a number of government organizations are struggling to make the transition. According to a survey conducted by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), 99 percent of all federal websites aren’t supporting the next-gen Interned Protocol on their DNS, email and Web services.

We at Cisco understand the urgency and difficulty of this change, therefore have partnered with the Digital Government Institute to   host a free one-hour webinar on August 30 (2 p.m. ET) that will give attendees the tools, as well as outline five steps, to help your agency move quickly toward compliance as the clock ticks down.

Attendees of the “5 Steps to Meet the September 30 IPv6 Deadline” webcast will learn:

  • How to get your agency on the road to compliance
  • Where to find agency help in the federal government
  • How to get the best services from the GSA schedules
  • About the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) IPv6 standards and how IPv6 has been integrated into a long list of USGv6 certified products
  • How five federal agencies, including the Department of Veterans Affairs, have already made the transition

Presenters include:

  • Dale Geesey, Chief Operating Officer, Auspex Technologies (CISSP)
  • Steve Pirzchalski, Director Enterprise Network Services, Department Veterans Affairs
  • David Prall, Consulting Systems Engineer, Cisco

New ways of governing: the Lincoln Institute’s approach promises something better

How can advanced network technology help governments to ‘listen better’ and ‘listen smarter?’ This is not a rhetorical question: planning has traditionally been a top-down affair, and this approach has, frankly, gotten us all (and particularly our cities, counties, and states) into a world of trouble.

There is a plethora of amazing technology at our disposal; how can we use them in new ways to empower decision-making that’s both bottom-up and top-down?

There is some good news to report: the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy, a think tank well known for traditional academic research, is embracing cutting-edge technology in planning and tools for civic engagement. Read More »
