Presentation abstract

Everyone’s counting down the days till there’s no more IPv4 addresses available; but technically we have been on that path for many-many year. Now we are at double-digit days remaining.  In reality, the global Internet community has been tirelessly working on IPv6 deployment and this talk will discuss both the depletion and the current successes of the global Internet’s move to IPv6.


Martin Levy has been involved in the TCP/IP world since the publication of the first TCP/IP RFCs in the early 80’s. Born and educated in England, Martin moved to the United States to work as a software developer at the prestigious Bell Labs. It was at Bell Labs where he ran their first TCP/IP network-enabled UNIX computers. After seven years in New Jersey, Martin moved to California and joined the Silicon Valley entrepreneurial-life to continue his focus on networking software and systems. Since then Martin has been building networks in California, the US, Europe, Latin America and now globally. Since joining Hurricane Electric in early 2008, Martin has taken on the role of significantly expanding Hurricane Electric’s IPv6 global connectivity services.  Martin Levy’s major contribution to the IPv6 world while at Hurricane Electric has been his tireless pursuit in making IPv6′s global routing on-par or better than the existing Internet routing.
