"IPv6- The Foundation for the 21st Century Internet" 


The Internet currently makes use of Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4), which is reaching the limits of its capacity to address additional devices. IPv6, the next generation of Internet Protocol, is designed to support the exponential growth of the Internet. IPv6 provides limitless addressing system, reinforces the end-to-end architecture and is critical to the Internet's continued growth as a platform for innovation and economic development. Governments across the world are taking the lead and companies from several industries including Google and Facebook are making significant commitments to enable IPv6 permanently to their services on World IPv6 Launch Day. IPv6 is essential for business continuity and growth and while thousands of corporate networks transition to IPv6 over the next few years, there is a need for IPv6 training for IT professionals and students. Plentiful opportunities arise for those with IPv6 expertise and the training provides clear and practical information about IPv6 transition requirements, processes and technologies to both the managers who must design a business case and to the engineers who must implement these changes. This talk will address the need to move to IPv6, explores the business potential of IPv6 and guides the professionals to gear up for the biggest transition of the Internet.
