How Community Input Shaped Our New ARIN.NET

The upcoming release of a totally redesigned arin.net wouldn’t be possible without the help of our community members — and one confused hotel worker ­— who took the time to provide direct feedback on the project. From the outset of the redesign, ARIN made user input a top priority of the effort. From an initial card-sorting exercise used to craft better menus through a live prototype test in fall 2018, staff asked and the community…

What is on your IPv6 training wish list?

 If you could learn anything in greater detail about IPv6, what would it be? IPv6 address planning? Picking a transition mechanism? Comparing DHCPv6 vs SLAAC? How to add a AAAA record in DNS? Digging into RIPng, EIGRP, IS-IS, OSPFv3, and BGP? Many organizations are ready to implement IPv6, but don’t know where to begin or how to navigate obstacles along the way. We want to help.

Reexamining How We Build and Operate Networks

University of Pennsylvania IPv6 Case Study IPv6 will eventually replace IPv4. However, during the transition, institutions and enterprises that deploy IPv6 won’t typically be able to start sunsetting support for IPv4 right away. So, while a valuable benefit of deploying IPv6 is the reduction (and someday elimination) of demand for IPv4 address space and network infrastructure, it will be several years before IPv6 operators will fully realize that benefit. Fortunately, implementing IPv6 does not have…
