Our June Technology Wizards meeting will be Wednesday, June 11th, 12:00pm – 3:00pm at the Microsoft PacWest office located at 1414 Northrup (in the Pearl district).
IPv6 Technology Wizards’ Style – featuring Matt Wilson, Brightstar Consulting
Back in November 2011, Technology Wizards gave a presentation on IPv6 that was a deep dive into the technology, how it developed and where it stands now. It was much more of a theoretical presentation to give a solid basis for moving forward with IPv6. This presentation will be focused on how SMB providers can implement and test IPv6 for themselves as well as clients in peer to peer or Windows domain environment. Topics to be covered:
- Quick review of technical aspects of IPv6
- Ways in which we are probably already using IPv6 for ourselves and our clients without realizing it
- Risks to be aware of with IPv6
- Setting up and using IPv6 in your own lab or production environment
- How to get a free IPv6 certification as part of this learning environment
- Ways that IPv6 can be deployed for your clients
- Internal vs. external use of IPv6
- Peer to peer clients
- Windows domain clients
Matt Wilson of Brightstar Consulting has been involved with computers since grade school, in the days before the IBM PC existed. Following years of consulting in the enterprise IT environment working for others, he founded Brightstar Consulting to bring the benefits of enterprise IT to the SMB space. Soon after that he became a charter member of Technology Wizards.
