Rushing into IPv6 Operational Problems? [Was: Re: NANOG 40 agenda post ed]

Hash: SHA1

I would urge potential sponsors to insist that V6 is on the agenda as
a condition of funding, both meeting sponsors and Beer 'N Gear.

it is possible that vendors might not want that story told on their
behalf... there are still a significant number of vendors without any
story for v6 :frowning: (without a reasonable story I'd say)

For what it's worth, I won't be at the next NANOG -- it falls at the
same time as MAAWG, and I already had planned to be there to give
an invited technical presentation. I will try to be at the next one
in Albuquerque, though...

Having said that, I would be interested to hear the NANOG community
input on two particular topics:

[1] The results of the "Report from the IAB Workshop on Routing
and Addressing", and it's effect on IPv6 multihoming on the Internet
routing system, and;
[2] Vince Fuller's statistics that he has presented several times
in several different venues.


I think before people start rushing off to deploy v6, there are
some serious issues that need to be addressed, regardless of v4
resource exhaustion.

p.s. If there are newer versions of the above two documents available,
mea culpa -- these should at least illustrate my point...
