Everyone knows we've run out of network addresses. That's old news. So why don't we hear about the solutions any more? Is it a thoroughly solved problem or have we all just decided to ignore it until the problem goes away (or the Internet falls over and dies)?

That's why this week's episode of Interop Radio, at 3 p.m. EST (noon PST) on Tuesday, Feb. 24, is so important. In this episode of Interop Radio we'll give you the answers and help you understand what those answers mean for your network. To do that we have an expert on board to talk about the technologies and practices that will make a difference for you and your organization.

Brandon Ross, Chief Network Architect and CEO at Network Utility Force, is a network architect and entrepreneur with years of experience building, operating and managing large-scale service provider networks. He's interested in helping telecommunications companies with the best network engineering team and network in the industry via scalable and stable architectures.

Re: IPv6
@Tom, the thing that keeps amazing me is that each year is not just "The Year of IPv6" but "The Year IPv6 Must Happen or Disaster Will Befall the Internet." And yet the Internet keeps rocking along.

I know all about double-stack technologies, but it seems like we should be hitting their limits, as well. I wonder whether we'll ever hit a point of true urgency about the conversion.
