      Welcome to IETF 88!

      • Jari ArkkoIETF Chair

      30 Oct 2013

      The IETF-88 meeting is starting next week in Vancouver. Vancouver is a long-time IETF favourite city, as this will be our fifth time there. And we were there just last year. Vancouver works well for the IETF, and I’m very happy to return again!

      Vancouver

      Our host in Vancouver is Huawei

      http://www.huawei.com/en/

       (see also the announcement). I am very happy that Huawei is supporting this meeting of the growing and diverse IETF community! We also have Hyatt Regency Vancouver as the welcome reception sponsor, Telus as the connectivity sponsor, and National Cable & Telecommunications Association as a sponsor. Many thanks to our host and the sponsors; we could not have a quality meeting without your strong support.

      And what a meeting we will have! There will be many interesting discussions:

      • The most visible discussion will be on our efforts in improving the security of the Internet, in light of reports about pervasive monitoring. Is there something we engineers can do? I wrote about the meetings on that topic in another article.
      • The transport area meeting will discuss the evolution of transport protocols in the Internet.
      • A Birds-of-a-Feather (BoF) session will look at potential new work on geo-networking (GEONET). The initial use case grew out of transport systems, but geo-networking as a concept is more widely applicable.
      • Our work on putting real-time communications in browser continues in the RTCWeb and MMUSIC working groups.
      • There is a lot of work around the Internet of Things, including a number of newly established working groups such as 6LO or 6TISCH.
      • There is renewed interest on source routing and a desire to determine if the previously difficult security problems with source routing could be solved. This is on the agenda for the newly formed SPRING working group.
      • The Service Function Chaining (SFC) BoF will examine routing packets via service nodes that may be in data centers and not on the normal path of packets. This could support network function virtualization and enable rich per-packet processing.
      • The HTTPBIS working group continues its work to define HTTP 2.0.
      • And many other working groups, with over 100 meetings during the week.

      The Bits-N-Bites event will take place on Thursday evening with exhibitor tables, free food, and free drink. Attendance optional, but the events are always fun! The Bits-N-Bites sponsors are A10 NetworksDynComcast, and Huawei and others are also signing up. Thanks for making this event possible!

      I look forward to the meeting in Vancouver. I would like to welcome you all to the meeting! And if you have not signed up yet, you can still register.
