The Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) recently held their 96th meeting, IETF 96, in Berlin, Germany from 17 to 22 July 2016.
APNIC staff were among the 1,500 people who attended and participated during the week long conference.
The IETF is an international community of network designers, operators, engineers, vendors, and researchers concerned with the evolution of the Internet architecture and the smooth operation of the Internet. The IETF holds three meetings per year.
- Geoff Huston presented the results from recent measurements made by APNIC Labs discussing the reliability and speed of IPv6 connections of ISPs.
- Tom Harrison presented to other RIR participants on Whowas – a service APNIC is developing that allows users to query for the registration history of an Internet number range – and had further discussions with RIPE NCC staff about Whowas during the conference week.
- Geoff and Tom attended a number of IETF group meetings – you can read Geoff’s impressions from IETF 96 in this post.
