We bring you another entrant to the Future of Networking series. Our guest is Mark Townsley, a Fellow at Cisco Systems and part-time professor at Ecole Polytechnique in Paris. Mark’s been involved with IPv6 quite a bit over the past decade. June 8th was the 6th anniversary of the World IPv6 Day 6 years ago, and June 6th marked the anniversary of the World IPv6 Launch 5 years ago.
We are going to talk with Mark about what it was like to be a part of these events, what has happened with IPv6 on the Internet since, and then peer into the future through the lens of the research taking place at Cisco’s Paris Innovation and Research Lab (PIRL) that he co-founded in 2015.
Note that this is not a sponsored show. Mark wears a lot of hats, and he’s talking to us today as a person of interest in the IPv6 community, and not as a spokesperson for his employer.
