NYSERNet Lunch and Learn Sessions
NYSERNet engineers are hosting three Lunch and Learn sessions. Topic titles and descriptions will include:
- Monday, July 30th, 2012: IPv6 Addresses and Subnetting - This online presentation will provide a brief introduction to IPv6 addresses, IPv6 address notation, and best practice for subnetting IPv6 allocations. There are major differences in how to allocate your IPv6 space in comparison to how the IPv4 space was utilized. This session will introduce attendees to the proper way to start allocating their IPv6 address block.
- Monday, August 6th, 2012: Assigning IPv6 Addresses - This online presentation will provide an introduction to how hosts get an IPv6 address. Network Administrators have more options in providing end station addressing, and with those new methods there are benefits and potential pitfalls. Campuses will need to determine how to address their end stations before moving forward with an IPv6 deployment.
- Monday, August 13th, 2012: IPv6 Campus Transition and Planning - This online presentation will build on the first two presentations and will discuss how to begin a deployment of IPv6 to a campus user community. This session will discuss how to assign the subnets that were determined in session one, and introduce how to deploy the various end station addressing methods to different members of the campus user base.
Participants do not have to have prior experience with IPv6, however, we recommend that the three IPv6 Lunch and Learns be attended in sequence if you are new to the subject. Instructions for connecting to the Lunch and Learn will be provided via e-mail upon registration. The presentation is free, but you must register to attend.
