Mark Townsley, Cisco Mark Townsley | Cisco Fellow

An industry-recognized Internet Engineering and Broadband Architecture expert, Mark Townsley joined Cisco in 1997 and is one of sixteen Cisco Fellows.

Mark has been actively involved in Internet industry forums since 1995. His leadership appointments have included: two terms as Internet Area Director of the IETF from 2005-2009, IETF L2TP Working Group Chair from 1999-2005, IESG Liaison to the Internet Architecture Board (IAB), IETF Pseudowire WG Technical Advisor, and co-Chair of the newly formed IETF Home Networking Working Group (Homenet). Mark also serves as an Ambassador of the Broadband Forum, and was invited to speak to the FCC on IPv4 Exhaustion and IPv6 in June 2011.

Mark is currently focused on the effects of IPv4 exhaustion and on removing barriers to IPv6 deployment for Cisco customers and the industry at large. He regularly updates Cisco’s most senior executives about this crucial topic and meets often with Cisco’s Enterprise and Service Provider customers about their IPv6 deployment strategy and IPv4 exhaustion mitigation. In 2010, he co-authored “IPv6 Rapid Deployment” (RFC 5969) which is responsible for the majority of production-grade broadband IPv6 connectivity today. Additionally, Mark is recognized as the primary force behind the Broadband Forum’s recent push to incorporate IPv6 in all of its Technical Reports, and co-authored “IPv6 for PPP Broadband Access”(TR-187).

Originally from Huntsville, Alabama, home of the NASA Marshall Space Flight Center, Mark had access to computer systems and communications technology at an early age. In the 1980s, his first experience with data communications was running pre-Internet dial-up “BBS” Bulletin Board Systems and University mainframes and workstations. Mark then moved to Washington, D.C., to complete his Master’s degree while working at the University of Maryland Institute for Systems Research and Center for Satellite and Hybrid Communications.

After a short stint at IBM, Mark finally joined Cisco in 1997 where he led the scaling of Cisco’s IOS software to support the rapid growth of dial-up and broadband connectivity during the “dot-com” boom. During this period, Mark also designed, developed, and standardized L2TP (RFC 2661), a cornerstone technology enabling handoff of dial-up and broadband Internet connectivity between wholesale access and retail Internet service providers.

Mark holds a Bachelor of Science (summa cum laude) degree in Electrical Engineering from Auburn University and a Master’s degree in Computer Science (magna cum laude) from the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory.

In addition to his industry appointments and work at Cisco, Mark is currently teaching and developing courses on Internet Protocols for École Polytechnique. Mark lives with his family in Paris, France.

Jan Zorz, GO6 Jan Zorz | GO6 Institute - ISOC

Jan Žorž started his professional career in RS-232/VAX VMS world in 1992 and continued through Novell and Windows environments all the way to Solaris and other UNIX derivatives, that represents native environment for majority of his projects.

Jan is one of the pioneers of SiOL, the Slovenian national ISP, and has been involved in the organization from the beginning. Among other activities, he began experimenting in 1997 with Internet streaming multimedia content. Based on these experiments, he successfully accomplished projects such as "Dhaulagiri '99 Live" (an Internet multimedia transmission of Tomaz Humar's solo climb of the south wall of Dhaulagiri (called Death Zone) in the Himalayas), "Ski Everest Live 2000" (an Internet live-video transmission and monitoring of extreme skiing from the summit of Mt. Everest by Davo Karnicar) and other similar projects. Together with two other members of the team "Dhaulagiri '99 Live", Jan received a media award/statue "Victor" for special achievement.

For the last seven years Jan has been working as a consultant in the IT field, specializing in IPv6. He co-founded the Go6 institute (not-for-profit), a Slovenian IPv6 initiative whose main objective is to raise IPv6 awareness in Slovenia and alert the community to the fact that we are approaching extensive changes on the Internet.

Due to Go6 Institute, Slovenia is currently leading the EU as country most prepared for IPv6 (according to the RIPE NCC's IPv6 RIPEness study). Jan has been invited to present around the world on his work, the model of the Go6 platform, IPv6 awareness raising and deployment at the national level. These speaking engagement have include conferences such as many RIPE Meetings and Google IPv6 Implementors Conference 2010, Internet Governance Forum meetings, World IPv6 Congresses in Paris and London as well as national forums in Germany, Greece, Norway, Macedonia and many others.

Jan is also primary co-author of very successful procurement (specification) paper, published as official RIPE Best Current Practice document RIPE-501, titled "Requirements For IPv6 in ICT Equipment". This document is translated to more than 10 languages and is used around the world by enterprises and governments, when requesting IPv6 in ICT equipment purchases. RIPE-501 was recently replaced by RIPE-554, also co-authored by Merike Kaeo, Sander Steffann and Jan Žorž.
