Lee Howard, Time Warner Cable

Lee Howard is the Director of Network Technology for Time Warner Cable, where he identifies and develops new network technologies. In that capacity, he is responsible for the company’s IPv6 deployment, and representation at standards bodies including IETF and CableLabs. He has held leadership positions in enterprise information technology, applications hosting, and small and large ISPs, including UUNET from 1997 to 2003. He currently serves as Working Group Chair for the IETF 6renum working group. He served for seven years on the Board of Trustees of ARIN, as Vice Chair, Secretary, and Treasurer. He also spent a year on ICANN’s Address Supporting Organization Address Council. In addition to his formal roles, Mr. Howard has participated in networking venues, including LACNIC, AfriNIC, NANOG, TPRC, NCTA, SCTE, the v6 World Congress, and Internet Society events including ION and INET. He often brings business, political, and engineering perspectives to discussions lacking them. His analysis of IPv4 address markets and carrier-grade NAT are widely cited in discussions of IPv4-IPv6 transition.
Abstract: Conventional wisdom says network operators must buy IPv4 addresses or deploy CGN as long as content and electronics are IPv4-only. But as long as ISPs buy IPv4 addresses or use CGN, there's little reason for content or electronics to support IPv6.
Using game theory, Lee Howard presents a decision tree allowing companies in each segment of the industry to figure out when they need IPv6.
