8. Slovenian IPv6 summit

At the summit you can find out how custodians of Slovenian and foreign networks, such as operators, content providers, large businesses and the like are dealing with the lack of internet addresses under the old protocol, which are required for uninterrupted operation of the internet.

We will also be joined by Ian Farrer from Deutsche Telekom. Ian is the co-author of Terrastream, an advanced next-generation network which uses only IPv6 for data transfer, which DT is piloting in the network of Hrvatski Telekom.
There will be two parallel workshops on Wednesday. In the first, beginners will learn the basics and essentials for implementing the new protocol. The second workshop will be given over to technically demanding users, and with the help of experts participants will set up transmission via IPv6 multicast. The Wednesday workshops will be followed by the founding meeting of Slovenian network experts (NOG), which will offer exchange of experience and promote the development of network technologies in Slovenia.
In addition to Ole and Ian, a number of other leading international expertswill present their views, solutions and proposals at the meeting:

  • Jože Mlakar (Ixtlan Team)
  • Andrew Yourtchenko (Cisco)
  • Massimiliano Stucchi (RIPE-NCC)
  • Sander Steffann (RIPE Address Policy WG chair)
