SPOTLIGHT: IETF to meet next week in Philadelphia


The Internet Engineering Task Force will be meeting in Philadelphia starting Sunday, an event hosted by Internet traffic-shaper Comcast. About 1,200 engineers are expected to attend to discuss issues such as the transition to IPv6, according to GigaOM. In related news, the IETF and the International Telecommunications Union recently formed a joint working group to sort out differences the groups have over the transport-multiprotocol label switching (T-MPLS) specification. Maybe that will surface as a topic of discussion as well.
