[PDF]TREX Workshop 2010

TREX is pleased to host a workshop on Virtualization in an ISP environment and IPv6 Transition Techniques Update together with sponsors Cisco Systems, Consolidate IT and Juniper Networks. The workshop will be held on Friday the 19th of February 2010 at the Tietotalo Auditorium TB111 in Tampere University of Technology from 12:00 to 17:00 and will continue as a networking event in the Hermia1 Sauna until late at night. The workshop will be of value to anyone interested in cloud computing and adopting IPv6, and of course to everyone interested in peering at TREX.

Server and network virtualization has become a possible and a very economical way to do business on the Internet. Virtualization is also a very ecological alternative, which is important due to rising customer awareness regarding the global warming issues. There are a handful of nice presentations focusing on different aspects of virtualization in this seminar.

Unused IPv4 address space is expected to run out within three years. After it has run out, only used IPv4 address space will be left and it will become an increasingly expensive commodity. There are a couple of presentations on brand new efforts to make the transition from IPv4 to IPv6 as smooth as possible, so that the pain caused by running out of IPv4 addresses could be avoided altogether.


The workshop is free to all invited and preregistered parties. Snacks and beverages will be provided. Registration is now closed.

Parking and Flights

You will get parking permits from the lobby. The parking permits should be placed on the windshield of your car.

At least Air Baltic and Ryanair have direct flights to the Tampere-Pirkkala International Airport (TMP). Flying via Helsinki-Vantaa (HEL) to TMP is also possible with e.g. One World or Star Alliance, but it might be easier to just take the train for that leg of the journey. The trains run at least once per hour between 05:00 and 22:00.


Hotel Hermica is located within just 5 minutes walking distance from the sauna location. Overnight workshop participants are urged to try to reserve a room there. Most of the other hotels in Tampere are located at the city center.
