INET Asia Regional Conference

Berjaya Times Square Hotel & Convention Centre

IPv6: The Next Step

The Internet Society, in collaboration with the Asia Pacific IPv6 Task Force and the National Advanced IPv6 Centre of Excellence, will organise a regional conference in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on July 20th, 2009. The conference, part of the Internet Society's INET series of regional conferences, will be focused on IPv6 with the theme "IPv6: The Next Step".

The technical community has been pushing for the move to IPv6 for some years now. In the last year or so, the need to deploy IPv6 has become an issue that has received widespread media and public attention, and the level of awareness on IPv4 to IPv6 transition issues has become mainstream.

INET Kuala Lumpur will bring together regional and international policy and technical experts, government, network operators, the private sector and the user community to discuss and deliberate what the region needs to do to move to the next stage of IPv6 adoption and deployment. The event will feature regional and international speakers sharing their knowledge and expertise on the business and economic perspectives of IPv6, what future applications and services could evolve from IPv6 and will highlight some IPv6 success stories from the region. The conference will culminate in a panel discussion deliberating the next steps required to further IPv6 in the region.
