ARIN 36 Recap

by | October 12, 2015

Montreal was buzzing with plenty of conference action last week – and we were happy to be a part of it. At the beginning of last week, we attended NANOG 65, where our CEO Aaron Hughes spoke. On Thursday and Friday, ARIN 36 Public Policy and Members Meeting was held in the same location as NANOG 65, at the historic Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth Hotel. Many folks attended both conferences and they each provided valuable insight from industry thought leaders.

Day one of ARIN 36 was focused on policy discussions and the depletion of IPv4. We also heard from the most recent Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) about IPv6 activities and were given an update on the IANA stewardship transition process.

Day one of ARIN 36 also happened to coincide with National Poetry Day. We got in on the fun, as did a couple of other folks attending the conference.

The second day of ARIN 36 began with many discussions of public policy, then we moved right into the Members Meeting in the afternoon. We heard from the Number Resource Organization (NRO) and ARIN Registration Services and Engineering departments. We heard an Advisory Council report, a financial report, and a Board of Trustees report. Both days were packed with valuable information and plenty of open dialogue.

With the wrap up of ARIN 36, we are already looking forward to their next conferences including:

Thank you to ARIN for hosting another excellent event!

“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!”

Premkumar Subramaniam
Head of R&D

“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

“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.”
