IPv6: Are we there yet?

IETF 77, Anaheim, California

11:45am - 12:45pm PT US, 23 March 2010, Pacific A, Anaheim Hilton

To explore the reasons for the progress of and momentum behind IPv6 deployment, the Internet Society is organizing a diverse panel of experts with real-life experience and data. Recent announcements by Internet network service and content providers, as well as efforts by governments at the national and international level, suggest a significant increase in the momentum behind the deployment of the next generation Internet Protocol, IPv6. While the number of addresses available under Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4)--used by most Internet services today--is dwindling, it is also clear that decision makers are increasingly motivated by additional reasons to deploy IPv6--and making the move earlier rather than later.

Because IPv6 is central to the continued growth and stability of the Internet, the Internet Society is working with its members and other organizations to promote its deployment. In conjunction with the 74th IETF Meeting in March 2009, the Internet Society organized a panel of experts from industry and other thought leaders on the topic to discuss the pressing need to adopt Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) to ensure the continued growth of the Internet as a platform for innovation.
