In less than three weeks, Auckland will welcome members of the Internet community to APRICOT 2016. Held for the first time in New Zealand, APRICOT 2016 provides network operators , engineers, and the wider Internet community with information on the latest technical developments.
In addition to the regular APOPS sessions, there are eight technical and 12 tutorial sessions on topics such as:
- Segment routing
- IPv6 in mobile networks
- Bit Indexed Explicit Replication (BIER)
- Misused ASNs
- IPv6 Performance
There will also be an IANA Stewardship Transition session to provide an update on the proposed transition of the IANA functions to the Internet community, and a session on IPv4 exhaustion and IPv4 transfers.
We’re pleased to welcome many distinguished speakers who will share their insights on the issues and trends that operators currently face, including Keynote presenter, Kordia’s Scott Bartlett, plus Hurricane Electric’s Anurag Bhatia, Cisco’s Greg Shepherd, IIJ’s Yoshinobu Matsuzaki, and APNIC’s Chief Scientist, Geoff Huston.
