SXSW Interactive 2016 Recap

by | March 21, 2016

South by Southwest (SXSW) Interactive in Austin each March showcases five days of compelling panel sessions led by the brightest minds in emerging technologies, hands-on instructional Workshops, one-on-one Mentor opportunities with industry leaders and a variety of exciting networking opportunities.

Self-proclaimed but true, SXSW Interactive is a true incubator of cutting-edge technologies and creativity – it’s the place to preview the technology of tomorrow today. We attended this year and had the opportunity to attend a number of panels relevant to our industry.

One of the stand-out panels that we attended was “Is Your Fridge Judging You? Tales from the IoT.” The Internet of Things (IoT) is a hot topic, will be a key driver of consumer electronics innovations and has enormous implications across every sector of our economy. We’re on the cusp of turning everything “smart” — from our homes to our street corners — but how do we build a market that supports innovation while still protects your right to privacy? This panel discussed challenges and opportunities of these technologies and what policymakers need to know.

Here are some additional highlights:

It was a pleasure meeting all of our new connections; we look forward to seeing you again next year at SXSW. If you’re still in Austin, our CEO Aaron Hughes will be attending an ARIN on the Road event tomorrow (3/22). Be sure to say hello if you’re there!

“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.”

Ed Horley
Co-Founder & CEO

“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.”
