Just how big is the IPv6 address space?

340,282,366,920,938,463,463,374,607,431,768,211,456 addresses to be exact.  Hear more about IPv6 during the Webinar by SBE on IP Networking, part 4 – IPv6, taking place February 21, 2013.

Just as IPv4 addressing can be challenging when managing limited IP address space, IPv6 brings new challenges when working with enormous IP address space. A new mindset is required to effectively understand and implement IPv6 in your network. New IPv6 features and capabilities also bring challenges to the broadcast network engineer.

Follow us on Twitter @SBEorg, #webinarsbysbe and post your questions for the webinar presenter, Wayne Pecena, CPBE, 8-vSB, AMD, DRB, CBNE. You can also post your questions on our Facebook page.

This webinar is the fourth in a series that aids in the self-study for the SBE Certified Broadcast Networking Engineer™ (CBNE™) certification exam.

IP Networking Webinar Series continues with the Fundamentals of IPv6

Just as IPv4 addressing can be challenging when managing limited IP address space, IPv6 brings new challenges when working with enormous IP address space. This webinar, which takes place on February 21, 2013, builds upon the brief introduction to IPv6 terminology presented in the third webinar of the series held in January 2013. A new mindset is required to effectively understand and implement IPv6 in your network. New IPv6 features and capabilities also bring challenges to the broadcast network engineer.

This webinar is the fourth in a series that aids in the self-study for the SBE Certified Broadcast Networking Engineer™ (CBNE™) certification exam.   More Info

IP Networking Webinar Series – live and on-demand webinars on IP address management, IPv6, routing and much more

IP-Webinars_Box_WebsiteLooking for a convenient and affordable way to learn more about IP networking? The SBE has a series of webinars, tackling subjects such as the OSI model and layers, routing and switching, IP address management, and IPv6.  Two of the webinars are available on-demand, and two of the webinars take place later this month and in February.  Click here to find out more about any of these webinars.

Interested in learning how to reverse engineer an unknown IP address?

The SBE, in conjunction with Wayne Pecena, CPBE, 8-VSB, AMD, DRB, CBNE, is offering a webinar on January 31, 2013 on IP Address Management.  This webinar will help attendees understand IP address principals and practices to properly design, manage, and support IP networks. This webinar will provide a realistic tutorial in IPv4 addressing principals, addressing schemes, and subnet design using private and public addressing. Also included are practical exercises to reverse engineer an unknown IP address and steps to designing an IP addressing scheme focused on a small broadcast facility. In addition, IPv6 addressing concepts will be introduced. The cost for members of the SBE is $49.  Non-members can register for $75.  Click here for more information.

What education are you looking for in the coming year?

As I plan the webinars and courses SBE would like to offer in the coming year,  I thought what better way to find out what our members would like to know more about than to ask them!

Next year we are planning to release a systems integration course, an advanced course on computer networking,  several webinars on IP networking, and a webinar on FCC enforcement actions.  Comment on this post to let us know what else you would like offered in the way of a webinar, online course, or live seminar.

Webinar by SBE helps broadcasters understand and implement IPv6

Wayne Pecena, CPBE, 8-VSB, AMD, DRB, CBNT, is presenting a webinar on July 11 to help broadcast engineers learn more about IPv6 and make informed decisions about implementing IPv6 in their organizations. The Internet is rapidly expanding due to an increase of broadcast content being published. Much of this expansion is occurring in an IPv6-only environment due to the shortage of conventional IPv4 address space. Continue reading
