The 7th Annual North American IPv6 Summit Welcomes Infoblox as Their Premier Sponsor
Denver, CO – July 8, 2014 – The 7th Annual North American IPv6 Technology Summit welcomes Infoblox as the premier sponsor. The theme of this year’s summit is Putting IPv6 to Work.
Infoblox delivers appliance-based solutions for secure, business-critical DNS, DHCP, and IP Address Management (DDI) and Network Automation. Over 7,300 global enterprises and service providers use Infoblox to control their networks.
“Organizations are finally ready to move IPv6 into large-scale deployments after years of testing and pilot projects,” said Cricket Liu, Chief Infrastructure Officer at Infoblox. “The North American IPv6 Technology Summit is one of the best places for IT networking professionals to learn how to make the jump from IPv6 as a theory to putting IPv6 to work.”
As the premier sponsor, Infoblox will be hosting the Keynote Speaker, Tom Coffeen, an industry expert at Infoblox, IPv6 evangelist and 17-year veteran of production internetwork design, deployment, administration, and management, as well as the author of “IPv6 Address Planning,” just published by O’Reilly.
“Infoblox has been a strong supporter of our event for the past few years,” states Ognian Mitev, Chairman of the Rocky Mountain IPv6 Task Force and host of the Summit. “They bring a wealth of experience and products to the networking community that serves as the foundation for successful deployments.”
In the past, the goal of the Summit has been to educate and provide outreach to help companies deploy IPv6. This year, the emphasis will focus on successful large-scale projects deployed over IPv6 which address the power of the network and simplifying networking deployments, focusing on strong IPAM solutions and ironclad DNS and DHCP services, like those enabled by Infoblox.
In addition to the keynote speaker, industry professionals will present case studies and best practices on implementing IPv6 in business networks with a focus on transitioning to single-stack IPv6. Security and addressing will also be covered, providing attendees with additional tools for IPv6 deployment. A new track this year will touch on Software Defined Networks (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NfV). These new paradigms have generated significant interest in the networking world.
The North American Summit will be held on September 24-25 at the Grand Hyatt in Denver, Colorado. A 2-day conference pass is $300 through August 15, with Student Pricing at $75.
In addition to the Summit, optional Training Sessions will be offered, for an additional fee, on September 23, featuring three sessions: Introduction to IPv6, Advanced IPv6, and a hands-on tutorial to Build Your Own IPv6 Lab.
A new feature to the 2014 event is a Virtual Trade Show. Registrants have the option to attend the event in person, or sign up for the Virtual Event with live streaming of speakers, plus access to sponsors.
