Are you looking for “best practices” within the operations community? If so, our friends over at the IP Best Current Operational Practices (IPBCOP) effort have just launched a new website to help make their information more accessible and available. The IPBCOP project, led by Aaron Hughes and Richard Donaldson, emerged out of a series of operator meetings such as NANOG where it became clear that a need existed to collect operational best practices within the operator community and capture those in a series of documents and templates that others can use.
The project has been working via a mailing list for the past while and currently has three drafts under active consideration:
More drafts are in development and a BCOP template is available for those interested in submitting their own best practices document for consideration. The IPBCOP project is very much a community effort and all communication really happens through their mailing list, which is open for anyone interested to join. You can also connect with IPBCOP on Twitter, Facebook and Google+.
We think this is a great effort that will only help the operations community move forward with technologies like IPv6 and we encourage you all to check it out and if possible get involved!
