Meeting: Monday 14th March – IPv6

Friday, March 11th, 2011

The next meeting will be on Monday 14th March at Old Broadcasting House in Leeds.

This month we have a talk from Paul Brook on IPv6.

IPv6 was developed by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) to deal with the long-anticipated IPv4 address exhaustion. Like IPv4, IPv6 is an Internet Layer protocol for packet-switched internetworking and provides end-to-end datagram transmission across multiple IP networks. While IPv4 allows 32 bits for an Internet Protocol address, and can therefore support 232 (4,294,967,296) addresses, IPv6 uses 128-bit addresses, so the new address space supports 2128 (approximately 340 undecillion or 3.4×1038) addresses.

This expansion allows for many more devices and users on the internet as well as extra flexibility in allocating addresses and efficiency for routing traffic. It also eliminates the primary need for network address translation (NAT), which gained widespread deployment as an effort to alleviate IPv4 address exhaustion.

Paul will be assisted by Andy Davidson of Hurricane Electric, who will be aiming to provide a live interactive demonstration. Please feel free to bring your own IPv6-capable wireless devices.

The talk commences at 7:00pm with the venue opening for chat and coffee from 6:30pm.

After the talk, we all go down to Mr Foleys for beer and more geeky chat.

The meeting is open to all, and new visitors are most welcome.
