    Why the Internet Needs IPv6 - With Special Guest Vint Cerf

    Why the Internet Needs IPv6 - With Special Guest Vint Cerf

    In this week’s episode Ed, Scott, Tom, and guest host Greg Ferro talk to Vint Cerf about why the Internet needs IPv6. Vint is Google’s chief Internet evangelist and the co-creator, with Bob Khan, of the Internet Protocol.

    In the 46 years since, he has continually worked to expand the technologies that facilitate Internet growth while tirelessly advocating for an open and accessible Internet for the benefit of all humanity.

    Topics discussed include:







    * Why it’s critical for everyone to adopt IPv6

    * The characteristics of IPv6 that make it ideal for the future

    * The likely life span of the Internet Protocol—both IPv4 and IPv6

    * Signs that the open and interconnected nature of the Internet is changing.

    * Risks that the Internet will fragment along political lines and the potential impacts of that fragmentation

    Tackling IPv6 Access Challenges

    Tackling IPv6 Access Challenges

    In this week’s episode Ed, Scott, and Tom talk to Nico Schottelius, CEO of Ungleiich Glarus, a Swiss IT services company, and founder of their Data Center Light, an IPv6-centric data center (powered 100% on renewable energy). Ungleich and Nico have developed a VPN IPv6 IoT Router Box (VIIRB), allowing cheap and secure access to the IPv6 Internet from anywhere.

    Topics discussed include:



    * The IPv6 access challenges that led to the development of the VPN IPv6 IoT Router Box (and how IPv6 was critical in solving them)

    * How the VIIRB works and why WireGuard was selected for its VPN component

    * The challenges of providing an IPv6-only hosting platform

    * Developing a data center powered with 100% renewable energy (and what’s unique about the physical data center architecture)

    The Good, Bad, And Ugly Of IPv6 With Geoff Huston

    The Good, Bad, And Ugly Of IPv6 With Geoff Huston

    Ed, Scott, and Tom discuss the good, the bad, and the ugly of IPv6 with Geoff Huston, APNIC’s chief scientist and network analyst nonpareil.

    Geoff’s experience in designing and analyzing networks dates back to the early years of the Internet. His research and insights are paid close attention by veteran Internet engineers and architects.

    Topics include:



    * How IPv6 extension headers went from being a proposed design improvement to a deployment headache

    * The state of IPv6 25 years after its inception and more than a decade of deployment

    * How dual-stack and Happy Eyeballs papered over some key deficiencies in IPv6

    * Why the IPv6 space might not be as vast as advertised (and why NAT is likely to be with us for a while)

    * Why Geoff believes IPv6 is still the future of the Internet in spite of its many challenges
