Chris Grundemann, CableLabs

Chris Grundemann (JNCIE #449) is the IP Network Architect at CableLabs, where he focuses on technical leadership, innovation, and contributions to standards & specifications within many current networking areas, specifically: Carrier Ethernet, VPNs, MPLS, IPv6, home networking, and SDN. Chris is the author of Day One: Exploring IPv6 and Day One: Advanced IPv6 Configuration, as well as several IETF Internet Drafts and various industry papers. He is the founding Chair of CO ISOC, the Colorado chapter of the Internet Society, a board member of the Rocky Mountain IPv6 Task Force (RMv6TF), an elected member of the ARIN Advisory Council (AC), a member of the NANOG Program Committee (PC), Co-Chair of the UPnP IPv6 Task Force, and a member of the CEA Pv6 Transition Working Group. Chris also maintains a personal weblog aimed primarily towards Internet related posts typically focusing on network operation and design, tech-policy and the future of the Internet at http://chrisgrundemann.com.
Abstract: There are many new pressures and requirements emerging in today’s home networks: The need for separation of visiting guest users from home users, community Wi-Fi services, smart grid, home automation & security, and an ever increasing number and type of IP enabled devices in the subscriber home are all strong motivations for additional routers and multiple LANs in the home. The emergence of heterogeneous link layer technologies, machine to machine communication, IP & multicast video streaming, video content sharing inside the home, telecommuting and corporate IT requirements, and the possibility of home network multi-homing are all also driving additional complexity and new requirements into home networks.

This talk will present a four-phase, incremental approach to solving these emerging home networking issues. This incremental approach includes a novel near-term solution to Home IP networking (HIPnet), which applies many of the tools and protocols within the IPv6 framework in new ways in order to enable a completely self-configuring dual-stack (IPv4 & IPv6) multi-router home network capable of supporting the full range of in-home IP services. This near-term approach leverages the existing Neighbor Discovery and DHCPv6 protocols, making it simple and cheap to implement in the near term while also providing a migration path to more complex long-term solutions utilizing routing protocols to increase the efficiency of home networks where needed.
