Tore Anderson, Redpill Linpro AS Tore Anderson | Redpill Linpro AS

Tore Anderson is a network and infrastructure architect at the Oslo offices of Redpill Linpro, a data centre and application service provider operating in the Nordics. He has been a vocal IPv6 proponent for years, first by helping quantify and fix the "IPv6 Brokenness" issue, followed by deploying IPv6 on several of the largest web sites in Norway. Due to IPv4 depletion being imminent in Redpill Linpro, his current main focus is on developing a unified solution that will ensure both IPv6 deployment and IPv4 service continuity, while at the same time avoiding introducing complexity or decreasing the overall performance of the service delivery platform. He is also an active member of the RIPE and IETF communities, the Norwegian IPv6 Forum, and various operator communities.

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.
