It's 2019 - do you know where your IPv6 network is? Richard chats with Ed Horley about the current state of IPv6 and his new business, HexaBuild, that specifically provides services to companies implementing IPv6. Ed points out that the cell industry has pretty much moved entirely to IPv6 - if you're using a current generation smartphone, it's running across an IPv6 network. All the cloud providers offer IPv6 addressing, so the laggards at this point are the big, older corporations. The real question is, when do we move off of IPv4?
Ed Horley is the Co-founder of HexaBuild, focused on advancing cloud, IoT and security with IPv6. He is the author of Practical IPv6 for Windows Administrators from Apress and is a Pluralsight author. Ed is the current Co-Chair of the California IPv6 Task Force, on the Technical Advisory Board for Infoblox in their IPv6 Center of Excellence and speaks internationally on IPv6 at various conferences. He maintains a blog at https://www.howfunky.com/ where he covers technical topics of interest to him and is on twitter @ehorley.
