ACN students will never look at the 128 bits of an IPv6 address the same way !!! They have discovered that behind IPv6, lies a very active innovation and research track with applications in many fields (data centers, virtualization, video production and distributions, … ). The presentation was given by Mark Townsley (Cisco & Ecole Polytechnique) who is leading several projects on these fields at Cisco PIRL. The presentation was given on January 13th at Telecom ParisTech, in the context of the “Future Internet” Course of the ACN Master.
