    • Impressions from the Internet Architecture Board E-Impact Workshop

      The IAB ran an online workshop in December 2022 to begin to explore and understand the environmental impacts of the Internet. The discussion was active, and it will take time to summarise and produce the workshop report – but the topic is important, so we wanted to share some early impressions of the outcomes.

    Network is Up!

    • Jari ArkkoIETF Chair

    2 Nov 2013

    The IETF network for the meeting is up. Even the network in the hotel rooms switched to IETF network by mid-Friday. Everything is ready for the IETFers to come!

    And the IETF crowd needs a very capable network, all of us being very heavy users. No hotel or conference facility network can take us unmodified. We bring our own gear and own setup. We put up direct IP connectivity, IPv6 and many other things that are not commonly found in hotel networks. And remember Paris where the team reworked the hotel’s network, making a significant improvement?

    But I wanted to highlight that all this does not happen by itself. We have a dedicated team of professionals and volunteers to do this as a service to all of us who get to use the network for the week. The people who set all this up arrive early, by Monday or Tuesday on the week preceding the IETF. And there is a lot of work. This time we transitioned to new address blocks, leading to additional configuration work.

    So I wanted to thank everyone who has been involved in the setup: Bill Jensen (University of Wisconsin – Madison), Bill Fenner (Arista), Bjoern A. Zeeb (Cambridge University), Chris Elliott, Jim Martin (Internet Systems Consortium), Joel Jaeggli (Zynga), Karen O’Donoghue (ISOC), Lucy Lynch (ISOC), Warren Kumari (Google), Joe Clarke (Cisco), Hans Kuhn  (NSRC), the Verilan staff (Rick Alfvin, James Dishongh, Colin Doyle, Nick Kukich, Brandon Height, Sean Croghan, Edward McNair, Dallas Breed). Thank you all for your time and expertise!

    I would also like to thank again Cisco, Juniper, and Telus for donating equipment and connectivity – this is very much appreciated as well.
