Network Basics

The IETF 78 network is connected to the Internet via two 1G links provided by SURFnet. The entire event is addressed out of the 130.129.0.0/16 block for IPv4 and 2001:df8::/32 for IPv6.

Wireless

An 802.11 a/b/g/n wireless network is being provided. Areas specifically covered are the meeting rooms and common areas throughout the MECC Conference Centre.

Accessing the production wireless network can be done in two ways:

  • via WPA/WPA2 Enterprise using the ietf.1x (2.4Ghz/5Ghz) and ietf-a.1x (5Ghz) SSIDs
  • via a web portal on the ietf-portal (2.4Ghz/5Ghz) and ietf-a-portal (2.4Ghz/5Ghz) SSIDS.

The usernames for these networks are your registration ID, which can be found on the back of your badge, your registration confirmation email, or conference receipt. The password for all methods is "ietf".

Alternatively, completely anonymous access tokens are available at the Help Desk and at the IETF Registration Desk.

Each User credential is valid for the entire meeting, and will allow up to 5 simultaneous logins.

Experimental Networks

The IETF supports several experimental networks to deploy our own work. Enjoy that dogfood!

SSID Access Credentials Purpose
ietf-v6ONLY WPA/WPA2 Enterprise w/ normal IETF credentials A IPv6-only network for investigating IPv6 in the absence of IPv4
