IPv6 Planning, Deployment and Transition Strategies
This presentation covers various IPv6 deployment mechanisms for service providers delivering consumer Internet and enterprise business services. This would help service providers to evaluate various IPv6 transition mechanisms and the challenges they would need to consider while deploying these services.

RIPE Atlas and RIPEstat
This presentation provides an introduction to RIPE Atlas and RIPEstat.

RIPE Atlas is a RIPE NCC project developed to collect Internet measurement data. With its thousands of globally distributed probes, it is one of the largest measurement networks ever built.

The huge amount of RIPE Atlas measurement data is made publicly accessible via another RIPE NCC project, RIPEstat. RIPEstat is also an access point for many other data sets including routing and registration data. RIPEstat is the RIPE NCC’s one-stop-shop for Internet-related information.

Best Current Operational Practices – Efforts from the Internet Society
There is an opportunity to better identify, capture, and promote documents about best current operational practices emerging from various regional network operators’ groups. We believe sharing these documents across the globe would benefit the wider Internet community and help more operators deploy new technologies like IPv6 and DNSSEC faster and more easily.

In addition, there is an opportunity to improve communications between the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) standards making process and operators around the globe. We believe standards could be better designed and implemented if more operators who actually use them in their real-world networks agreed on what they need and provided more feedback to the IETF.

In this presentation, Jan Žorž from the Internet Society Deploy360 Programme will discuss options on how to start answering three specific questions:

  • Would operators benefit from documenting the best current operational practices in different regions and globally?
  • Do you agree that there is a communication gap between the IETF and real-world network operators?
  • What is the best path forward to closing these communication gaps and creating such document repositories?

Many operators need down-to-earth information on how to fix their current issues and how to implement new technologies coming out of the IETF. How can the Internet Society help facilitate this work?
