by | October 10, 2016

Internet operations experts from ISPs, data centers, Internet Exchange Points, content providers, governmental organizations, and research and educational institutions gathered this week for APNIC 42 in Colombo, Sri Lanka. The event was from September 28 – October 5. It started with a five day workshop, followed by a three day conference.

Approximately 300 people attended the meeting, including 6connect CEO Aaron Hughes. The conference focused on IPv6 deployment, depletion of IPv4, IPv4 transfers, and policy development.

Here are some video highlights from the conference, in case you missed it. First, Colt Technology Service’s Monika Singhvi discusses how networks can be more efficient, ultimately saving on CAPEX and OPEX.

Check out the entire opening ceremony and the keynotes, Zaid Ali Kahn of LinkedIn who discusses IPv6 at LinkedIn, and Rohan Samarajiva of LIRNEasia, who discusses Connectivity in the Bay of Bengal.

Here are additional highlights of the conference:

“We decided to move our rather complex IP address and DHCP management process to ProVision and it has worked out great for us!! The team at 6connect were very flexible and went above and beyond to accommodate our requirements and helped to make the migration as smooth and hitch free as possible. Kudos to the team @ 6connect!”

“We are excited to be partnering with 6connect to leverage their technology and talent. We particularly admire their long-standing IPv6 contributions and their ability to service and support customers in this area, some who are the largest service provider in the world. The 6connect executive leadership team and technical team are great to work with and we look forward to many partnered projects to help customers address their Cloud, IoT and Security needs with IPv6. Automation, workflow and orchestration are critical to the success of most of these projects and 6connect is well positioned to help our mutual customers in those areas.”

“Enterprises can struggle managing purposefully segmented DDI architectures with any agility. Our partnership with 6connect empowers customers with complex infrastructures to move faster to service the business while consolidating visibility and control over their estate.”

Andrew Wertkin
Chief Strategy Officer,

“6connect’s approach to automation addresses quite a few challenges with physical and virtual networks – how to improve the agility of your current network infrastructure without sacrificing reliability and adoption of future network technologies.”

Pär Lange
Investment Director

“A customer is looking for an integrated solution from a single vendor for both IPAM and DNS. Through the 6connect reseller program, Secure64 is able to offer the most secure DNS solutions married to a unique combination of IPAM and resource provisioning that customers want. It’s a marriage made in heaven.”

Mark Beckett
VP of Marketing

“A huge benefit of working with the 6connect team is that they devoted a lot of resources to get our products integrated so we had the turnkey solution that we could take to market. It was very easy to work with their team to get product integrated and successfully launched.”
