Martin Levy, Hurricane Electric

Martin Levy has been involved in the TCP/IP world since its inception. Originally from London, England, Martin came to the US to work as a software developer at Bell Labs where he ran the first TCP/IP network-enabled UNIX computers. After seven years in New Jersey, Martin joined the Silicon Valley entrepreneurial-life and continued his focus on networking software. When the ISP industry started to take root in the early 90's, it was a natural industry to move into. Since then Martin has been building networks in California, the US, Europe and Latin America. Since joining Hurricane<BR> Electric in 2008, Martin has taken on the role of significantly expanding the IPv6 commercial offerings from Hurricane Electric.
Abstract: IPv6 traffic levels have been the subject of discussions and reports at various networking conferences. Alas none of these previous talks have addressed real traffic levels within an operational global IPv6 backbone. This talk reviews IPv6 traffic levels within the Hurricane Electric backbone; shows where IPv6 peering works (and doesn’t work). The data is being collected throughout the backbone and will be presented in this talk.



But does traffic measurements matter? Is that the most important measurement we have on backbones? Maybe it’s less quantitative and more qualitative. IPv6 readiness is maybe more important than the traffic levels. This talk will compare the importance of IPv6 traffic levels and IPv6 readiness.



The inclusion of IPv6 packets within the traffic mix may well be coming from the same applications and could just be a substitute for existing IPv4 packets; vs. created via new applications. At the backbone level; the talk describes why it’s more important to be ready for any traffic, immaterial of IPv6 or IPv4 protocol choice.
