The 2009 TXv6TF Summit


November 3-4, 2009 The Planet
9AM to 4PM 315 Capitol Street, Suite 205
Houston, Texas 77002

Why Attend:

  • Do you have a government mandate or business requirement that is driving your IPv6 transition?
  • Does your organization have plans to use Linux, Vista/2008 or Windows 7?
  • Are you not going to retire from the IT industry for another 10 years?
  • Have you always wondered what IPv6 is but were afraid to ask?

The transition to IPv6 has already begun and its completion is inevitable. We want you to be ahead of these technology trends rather than reacting after the ball is already rolling. You need to know more about IPv6 to be able to understand how the powerful wave will transform communications over the next 20 years.

  • FREE two-day educational event
  • Find out what IPv6 is all about
  • Learn about the benefits of using IPv6
