Get your passports ready! Coming off the successful event last February and in preparation for the next World IPv6 Day, Cisco again is sponsoring the V6 World Congress 2012 in Paris February 7-10 2012. This is an opportunity to hear from a number of IPv6-related companies such as Google, Yahoo, Softbank, Comcast, and of course Cisco. In addition to the keynotes and panels the event also provides a unique opportunity to actually meet one-on-one with Cisco’s technology leaders.
While previously this was a service provider focused event, this year includes a number of sessions targeted towards enterprise customers, so even if you aren’t a network provider it’s still a great venue to learn about the transition to the IPv6 Internet.
The current list of Cisco speakers includes (link to full agenda here):
- Mark Townsley, Fellow: Day 1 Keynote Address
- Eric Vyncke, Distinguished Systems Engineer: “Later-2 Insecurities of IPv6 and the Mitigation Techniques” and also “Challenges Enterprise Face when Introducing IPv6”
- Dan Wing, Distinguished Engineer: IPV6 fast failover (“Happy Eyeballs”)
- Ralph Droms, Distinguished Engineer: Home Networks with IPv6
- Ole Troan, Technical Leader: “Can we Get an IPv6 CPE Please”
- Andrew Yourtchenko, Technical Leader: “NAT or Not”
- Gunter Van de Velde, Technical Leader: Tutorial Sessions
In case you missed last year’s event here is Mark Townsley talking about the Business Case for IPv6.
Registration for the event is here, but we have a limited number of customer passes available. Please contact your Cisco account manager for more information and to schedule meetings with our technical experts. We can’t wait to see you in Paris!
