Hi, I'm Iljitsch van Beijnum. These are all posts about IPv6.

My first big Ars Technica story in 2007: "Everything you need to know about IPv6"

When the BGP table hits 1 million prefixes, will history repeat itself?

IPv6 guest lecture for Hochschule Augsburg

Last week I recorded a remote guest lecture about IPv6 for the Computer Networks course at the Hochschule Augsburg with Rolf Winter. It's a 63 minute Youtube video, with mostly me talking about IPv6 and Rolf interjecting with questions now and then. Have a look over at Youtube.

And these are my slides.

RIPE NCC::Educa IPv6-only

Next Monday June 8, 2020, 8 years and 2 days after World IPv6 Launch, the RIPE NCC is organizing a RIPE NCC::Educa online education event about running IPv6-only.

Halfway through the morning (European time) I'll be talking about IPv6 address planning, based on my experiences with IPv6 numbering plans (see my publications).

At the end of the event, I'll be participating in a panel discussion with Nico Schottelius and Veronica McKillop titled "When can we turn off IPv4?"

Go to the RIPE website for more information and to sign up.
