    Dear IP-WG:


    Our meeting in Orlando is scheduled from 1:00 to 2:00 PM on Sunday January 24th.  Hopefully we can get some time from the IT and Smart Grid working groups which are immediately before and after us, as IPv6 is likely a tool needed for both IT and SG.


    Also, this will be the last SSPC meetings that I will be attending regularly. Michael Osborne will be representing Reliable Controls at future meetings.  This also mean a new IP-WG convenor is needed. Talk to Dave Robin if you are interested.


    Attached is the agenda for Orlando. Please remember to review RL-003-10 and the IPv6 RFCs found in the files section of this yahoo group.




    Meeting Location: The Rosen Shingle Creek at 9939 Universal Blvd, Orlando, FL.

    Hi Jim,


    I had hoped to add support for the different broadcast types (anycast, multicast, etc.) in this revision of the document and really examine how the use of broadcasting will be affected by the use IPv6. 


    However, it doesn't look like we'll have time (for this revision of the proposal) to accomplish that or address any wish list items due to the requirement of getting this out to public review quickly.  See my email on 1-Dec-2009 titled "RE: IPv6 presents an opportunity for elimination of broadcast". 


    Do we honestly think we can reach consensus on something as big as broadcasts in 2 hours?


    I certainly understand the need to get this out to public review for the Smart Grid work -- and I don't disagree with it.  However, I think we're missing the boat on some other important opportunities here.

    Hi Roland,

    Will we be discussing an IPv6 proposal in Orlando? If so, I would like
    to see it at least a few days prior to the meeting.

    This is a list of the main IPv6 RFC documents that describe the core
    components of IPv6. It was requested that the IP-WG familiarize
    themselves with IPv6 so that we are equipped to review the next
    proposal. Coleman Brumbley will be providing an update to the current
    RL-003-10. RL-003-10 is in the Files section of this Yahoo Group.


    RFC 2460: Internet Protocol, Version 6 (IPv6)
    RFC 4294 : IPv6 Node Requirements
    RFC 4291: IP Version 6 Addressing Architecture
    RFC 4193: Unique Local IPv6 Unicast Addresses
    RFC 3306: Unicast-Prefix-based IPv6 Multicast Addresses
    RFC 3307: Allocation Guidelines for IPv6 Multicast Addresses

    We will be allocated at least two hours in Orlando critically review the
    BACnet/IPv6 proposal. As the Smart Grid is looking to IPv6, it is
    important that we move this proposal out to public review ASAP. Please
    take time before Orlando to study the RFCs and RL-003-10.

    Thanks Roland
