EXTON, Pa. -- With the notice this week of the exhaustion of IANA IPv4 addresses, the Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers (SCTE) today announced enhanced availability of resources that are designed to prepare engineering and operations professionals for the transition to Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6).

SCTE announced that registrations are now being accepted for “Migration to an IPv6 Infrastructure,” an SCTE LiveLearning™ webinar course scheduled for 2 p.m. ET Wednesday, March 16, as well as for “IPv6: Impact on Cable Networks,” a seven-week online course that begins Monday, April 4.

SCTE also offers customized, onsite IPv6 training for companies or local chapters, as well as a variety of member-exclusive IPv6 resources: Access to white papers on the transition via the SCTE InfoScope® information source, and three archived SCTE LiveLearning™ webinars entitled “The Path to IPv6 in Cable Networks”; “IPv6 in the Data Center”; and “IPv6: Deployment Issues and Challenges.” Presentations from “Bye Bye v4,” an IPv6-focused panel that is on the agenda for SCTE Canadian Summit 2011 next month, also will be available in the near future.

“While the cable industry has taken significant steps to prepare for the adoption of IPv6, it is important that we take all possible steps to make the transition as smooth as possible, including working closely with CableLabs® and NCTA on joint initiatives,” said Daniel Howard, CTO of SCTE. “Our IPv6 courses have been created to provide the knowledge and skills that the engineering and operations communities will need to minimize the impact of the migration on cable operators’ businesses, and to make the change as seamless as possible for customers.”
