Over the years, your humble and loyal servants here at the Infoblox IPv6 CoE have done our level best to attempt to answer at least a few of your burning IPv6 questions.
But the Internet is a fickle beast. New technologies (and reconfigurations of the old ones) arrive over the transom (or under the door) on a daily basis. Where IPv6 fits in (or doesn’t) isn’t always immediately obvious. New questions arise and soon the future isn’t so clear.
But don’t despair! We’re here to lift the veil of confusion and fear as we illuminate life’s most profound mysteries—er, um, as long as they’re related to IPv6…
For instance, what does our IPv6-enabled cloud future look like exactly? How will we secure our Brave New IPv6/IoT World? How the heck do you convince the suits to cough up some dough for your IPv6 adoption initiative? Or maybe you just want to know what the heck happened to IPv5?
On January 10th, at 9:30am PST, myself, and my intrepid colleagues and IPv6 experts Scott Hogg and Ed Horley will be on hand to attempt to answer these questions and any others you may have at our first ever IPv6 CoE AMA!
We’re looking forward to answering all of your IPv6 questions — or furiously furrowing our brows in the attempt!
