IPv4 address exhaustion is picking up rapidly. Simultaneously, IPv6 deployment is also accelerating but we need to increase this momentum, as the IPv4 address free pool will most likely exhaust at Regional Internet Registries (RIRs) by the end of 2011. APNIC has been allocated eight (8) /8 from Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) in 2010 which is the largest number of allocations among RIRs. At the brink of IPv4 address exhaustion, the APNIC region is showing the strongest Internet growth.

No challenge comes without opportunities. The APNIC region can orchestrate efforts to make a smooth transition to IPv6 and showcase rapid IPv6 deployment. APRICOT-APAN 2011 will be the last major opportunity to have an large scale IPv6 conference prior to the IPv4 address exhaustion. APAN, APIPv6TF and IPv6World.Asia have worked together to develop a full day conference focused on IPv6 on 22/02/2011 as part of the APRICOT-APAN 2011 conference track program.

This conference will provide our audience with an opportunity to prioritize while we transition to IPv6. We are still waiting for final confirmation from several speakers but all organizational names of all confirmed speakers are listed. So please stay tuned for more information to be updated in this page!

Panel discussion 1

Theme: Sharing IPv6 deployment experiences

We will have a chance to hear information from the "front line" of IPv6 deployment. ISPs and Content Distribution Network (CDN) will share their IPv6 implementation plan including IPv6 business plan, progress of the implementation and lessons learnt. Desirable network architecture will determine IPv4 to IPv6 transition techniques and vice versa.

Panel discussion 2

Theme: Supporting IPv6 deployment through a multi-stakeholder approach

Speakers from a government, academy and civil society will be invited to present efforts in supporting IPv6 transition, partnership between the public and private sectors, and R&D on IPv6 transition techniques.

Panel discussion 3

Theme: Revisit strategic thinking of IPv6 production networks from economic perspective and operation perspective

Are decision makers ready to support IPv6 transition in their operational fields? What issues need to be considered? What will be the driving force to enable IPv6 on your production networks? Has an IPv6 implementation business plan been considered? Are you aware of the relationships among IPv6 business plan, network architecture and required transition techniques? This panel discussion session focuses on both economic implication of IPv6 and experiences of IPv6 implementation.

Who should attend?

This full day IPv6 Conference is designed to cater to Internet multi-stakeholders including:

  • Government policy makers and regulators
  • Decision makers of businesses related to the Internet
  • Technical people of ISPs, Content Providers and CDN
  • System integrators
  • Civil Society
  • Etc.
