IPv6 - It's now or it's McDonald's
Mel Beckman - System i Network

October 16, 2012 FASUG Meeting

If you haven't come up to speed on IPv6 -- the follow-on to the out-of-steam IPv4 Internet address protocol -- you don't have much time. IPv4 address space, now exhausted at the regional level, can't sustain the current level of Internet growth. IT professionals that leave their companies in a v4 lurch will likely find themselves making a downward career move. In this session, Mel Beckman tells you what you need to know to get IPv6-fluent, and how to set up a test lab to make you v6-fluent. The job you save will be your own!
