IPv6 Adoption Critical for the Preservation and Growth of the Internet

The Internet Society and the Rocky Mountain IPv6 Task Force unify events in Denver to increase IPv6 adoption rate

(DENVER) – The number of available Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) addresses is declining rapidly and will soon leave businesses and individuals worldwide who have not yet adopted the new IPv6 protocol with limited options for connecting new devices to the global Internet.

To help ensure this does not happen, the Internet Society Colorado Chapter and the Rocky Mountain Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) Task Force (RMv6TF) have joined forces to advance deployment of IPv6. On April 17, 2013, the Internet Society-organized INET Denver will co-locate with the 2013 North American IPv6 Summit in Denver, Colorado, creating the largest IPv6-focused event in North America this year.

United in the goal to preserve the growth and development of the global Internet, the world’s largest platform of global communication and commerce, the Internet Society and the RMv6TF will leverage both events in Denver to spread awareness and educate the industry on the importance of the adoption of IPv6.

 

“As IPv4 is rapidly running out of IP addresses to support the explosive number of devices connecting to the Internet, it is critical that the world embrace IPv6 as the new normal,” said Scott Hogg, Chair-Emeritus, RMv6T. “IPv6, unlike its predecessor IPv4, essentially has an unlimited number of IP addresses available, so businesses across the globe can continue to use the Internet as a primary vehicle for collaboration, commerce, and innovation.”

 

INET Denver: IPv4 Exhaustion and the Path to IPv6 brings together top industry experts with professionals in the networking field to discuss the depletion of IPv4 in the market and the TCO of IPv6. A compelling variety of sessions and panels will give industry professionals a chance to understand why the time to move to IPv6 is now. Speakers at INET Denver feature a wide range of organizations successfully deploying IPv6, including Richard Jimmerson, Director of the Internet Society’s Deploy360 Programme, which provides real-world deployment information for key Internet technologies such as IPv6 and DNSSEC.

 

Remarking on the importance of deploying new technologies such as IPv6, Jimmerson said, “In the last 15 years, the Internet has completely changed the way the world conducts business. Nothing is more important to your business continuity than paying attention to changes in the core Internet protocols.”

 

Discounted registration is available to INET Denver for Internet Society members and the entire event will be streamed live for those unable to attend in person. For registration and more information, see: http://www.internetsociety.org/events/inet-denver.

 

To further the education and awareness gained from INET Denver, the North American IPv6 Summit will continue the momentum with two days of discussions, panels, and workshops, giving network professionals the opportunity to gain in-depth knowledge on what it takes to transition to IPv6. Discussions will include hot topics around BYOD, the Do’s and Don’ts of IPv6 Transitions, Enterprise Deployments and overall best practices, with powerful keynotes from Latif Ladid, President, IPv6 Forum and Google Vice President and Chief Internet Evangelist Vint Cerf.

 

Additionally, the conference will also host a full day of pre-conference tutorials at a small additional fee for attendees looking for training and development on IPv6. An Introduction course, Security Course, and Advanced training class are offered.  Registration for tutorials is open and will take place on April 17, 2013.

Press Release: 2013 IPv6 Summit Keynote: The Big Shift To IPv6 Is On By Default

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

March 20, 2013

 

2013 IPv6 Summit Keynote: The Big Shift To IPv6 Is On By Default

Industry Leading Speaker Lineup Explains Why IPv6 Adoption
Imperative for Continued E-Commerce

 (DENVER) – The Rocky Mountain Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) Task Force (RMv6TF), in conjunction with Regional North America IPv6 Task Forces, announced keynote speakers for the upcoming North American IPv6 Summit in Denver on April 17-19, will include Latif Ladid, President, IPv6 Forum and Google Vice President and Chief Internet Evangelist Vint Cerf.

This year’s keynote covered by Ladid and Cerf explains why the big shift to IPv6 Internet is on by default. “When a protocol is on by default,” explains Ladid, “vendor readiness, network readiness, and service enablement become critical. The issue now is can IPv6 be treated like IPv4. The service providers with advanced deployment experiences have discovered that IPv6 is a totally different networking paradigm.”

Cerf, who is recognized as one of “the fathers of the Internet” will address the audience via video from Silicon Valley. Cerf will discuss The Adoption of the Internet of Things, and how the Internet impacts our daily life with the plethora of new services and how security and privacy should be managed.

Additionally, the speaker lineup covers compelling trends and discoveries made regarding IPv6 deployments, and looks closely at the highly discussed topic of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), one of the foremost reasons for the essential transition to IPv6.  Featured keynote speakers will address topics including the Do’s and Don’ts of IPv6 Transitions, Enterprise Deployments and overall best practices.

“This year’s speaker lineup offer up compelling information and insights on the transition to IPv6,” said Scott Hogg, Chair-Emeritus, RMv6T. “The world is experiencing an explosion of IP connected devices through BYOD in business as well as homes. There are simply not enough IP addresses to sustain commerce as we know it on the IPv4 platform. This lineup of speakers will help ensure the world is ready.”

Hogg added, “In time, every business, large and small who wants to continue to conduct business over the Internet will have to migrate to IPv6. It’s imperative that those managing that transition know how to do it fast, and as seamlessly as possible.”

The speaker list and agenda are now available. Registration for the conference is open to anyone who would like to attend. A newly added Government panel will look at current IPv6 adoption levels in the US Government, learn how real deployments are being impacted and hear how some government agencies are making the most of the IPv6 transition process. This half-day session will also be available to those who cannot attend in-person via Webex.

Additionally, the conference will also host a full day of pre-conference tutorials at a small additional fee for attendees looking for training and development on IPv6. An Introduction course, Security Course and Advanced training class are offered.  Registration for tutorials is open and will take place on April 17, 2013.

Government Panel offered at NA IPv6 Summit

Apr ’13
19
8:45 am

The North American IPv6 Summit is pleased to add a Government Panel to the agenda this year.

Tales from the Edge: IPv6 Adoption in US Government will focus on how after six months beyond the due date for OMB 2012 IPv6 compliance, many US Government entities still struggle to complete major adoption milestones.  But does the fault lie with the agencies?  With the IT vendor community?  Service providers?  Or an un-compelling business case?  This half-day session will explore these issues, provide  insight into current adoption levels in the US Government, learn how real deployments are being impacted by IPv6 support at large, and hear how some government agencies are making the most of the IPv6 transition process.

This session is offered to conference attendees as a break-out option on Friday, April 19th, 2013 and will be held in Pikes Peak at the Grand Hyatt in Denver, CO.  Additionally, this session is available via Webex at no charge.  To register for the Webex, please fill out the form below and information will be sent directly to you.
