Share IPv6 Implementation –Lessons Learned and Motivation in the US

Event Details

Network World magazine recently provided a glimpse into seven of the largest IT companies regarding their front running efforts transitioning to the next generation Internet Protocol called IPv6, including Google, Microsoft, AT&T, Comcast, among others. Our panel will provide a glimpse into Federal civilian and DoD IPv6 adoption initiatives, commercial initiatives from an ISP and Telecom perspective (including why they are in the IPv6 business), and the issue of Cyber-Security across both Federal and commercial space with respect to IPv6. The members of the panel have been intimately involved with the IPv6 industry for years and are engaged in the implementation of IPv6 at the ground level today. Their insights will provide views into the risks surmounted during their adoption efforts, providing invaluable experience to the attendees of the presentation.
