#Ripe76 Recap

by | June 1, 2018


For this year’s #Ripe76 several hundred people met in beautiful Marseille, the second largest city in France. The meeting took place at the Palais du Pharo Convention Centre of Marseille from 14-18 May 2018. Despite the air traffic control strikes over the weekend, everyone made it in (albeit delayed). One of the first highlights we noticed was the amazing cheese selection. Yes, cheese. Everywhere we looked there were delectable cheeses. The fantastic cheese element was hard to ignore, but then again- why would we?








Not only was the fromage outstanding, so was the breathtaking venue, but more importantly, we enjoyed the talks and break out groups. But above all we were impressed with the on-site childcare that was available all week. The Women in Technology (WIT) luncheon was also another highlight. The WIT lunch discussion talked about the power of mentoring and helped everyone to better understand one another’s different viewpoints and perspectives.

One of our discussions was about the new internet from a different perspective by Jordi Palet Martinez: A New Internet Intro to HTTP/2, QUIC, DOH and DNS over QUIC.

“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!”

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.”

“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.”

“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.”

“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.”
