Welcome letter

IPv6LaunchLogo The world IPv6 launch day was on June 6th 2012. Now the main content providers are supplying their services over IPv6 natively. IPv6 has become mainstream. Is it time for the last workshop? Has everything been done on campus? This is the key question to the participants. The topic is approached from the ISP, content provider, access, campus and administration point of views. A possibility to give a short talk or a demo is provided. The participants are challenged to query the speakers and discuss with each other to find out the critial areas of IPv6 roll-out. If such areas exist.

The workshop is open to anyone and will be held on the 4th and 5th October 2012 in Helsinki Finland.

The intended target group is the network engineers working with deployment of IPv6 on campuses and NREN staff involved in IPv6 and campus deployment.

The program of the workshop consists of the following themes:

  • Where are we now
  • Device and software challenges
  • Recommendations and decrees
  • Further development

If you have an opinion, this workshop is for you.

Welcome to the workshop!

On behalf of the program committee,

Janne Oksanen

Practical information

How to find Venue

The workshop will be held on an island called Uunisaari. You will get there by boat. Boat is leaving from Kompassitori (Merisatamanranta 2, Helsinki) every 30 minutes (xx:15/xx:45) and it takes about 5 minutes to reach Uunisaari from harbour. In the mornings and end of days boat goes non-stop as needed.

Getting there

You need to fly into Helsinki-Vantaa Airport in Finland, and then catch a bus 615 to Helsinki center/ Central Railway station (Rautatientori, terminal point) which takes around 45 minutes. Or you can take a taxi to center. Taxi costs around 45e-60e and bus (single ticket) 4,50e.

From Central railway station catch tram 3T (correct time/date and look “large transfer maps” page) and step out in Neitsytpolku. Then walk via Neitsytpolku to Merisatamanranta/Kompassitori. Note tram 3T can change name to 3B depends on route.

Or from Central railway station catch bus 24 and leave in Merikatu. Then walk to Kompassitori.

From Kamppi terminal take a bus number 14, 18 or 24 (departs from Fredrikinkatu street, not inside terminal. Street is next to Kamppi metrostation). E.g. terminal point of bus 18 is Eira where you leave and then walk 500 meters to Kompassitori. There is Uunisaari sign where boat is leaving.

Please see Helsinki Region Transport web pages to find timetables, ticket prices and route maps. E.g. Journey Planner page (just correct time and date).

PS. There are “stop screens” in all trams and some buses which tell the name of the next stop.
