Planning is underway for the 2017 North American IPv6 Summit event, scheduled for April 25-26, 2017 in Sunnyvale, California. This year’s event will be held at LinkedIn’s Headquarters, located at 605 W Maude Ave, Sunnyvale, CA 94085. All the North American IPv6 Task Forces are working together on this event.
This 2-day event will focus on the accomplishments that have been made in recent years that have driven the accelerating growth in IPv6 Internet traffic. We will also acknowledge and celebrate the hard work performed by broadband service providers, mobile carriers, online content providers, content distribution networks, equipment manufacturers, operating system manufacturers, and numerous others.
Registration for the event will open in late February. Fee’s are $200 per person. More information will be provided as soon as it is available.
We look forward to seeing you at this year’s event!
On behalf of the board of TXv6TF, I want to wish everyone a happy, safe and productive 2017. So much has happened in the IPv6 world since our first meeting in 2009. In the US, IPv6 deployments continue to accelerate as organizations refresh their networks and Service Providers improve their service offerings.
This is happening around the world as well at different rates (some faster than the US, some slower). Today, I can use resources that run totally over IPv6, some are mixed and a shrinking few are still IPv4 only. I hope to see that last group fade quickly as the days pass.
As for the plans for 2017, watch this space!

I want to wish all readers a Happy New Year!
I wanted to let you all know that we had an important change in 2015. Stephan Lagerholm, who founded TXv6TF with me, has moved on to new opportunities. Replacing him is Jeff Carrell who was elected to the board and serves in 2016 as Vice Chairman.
We hope to have more to share with what we are planning for 2016.
