Keynote Address: IPv6 Deployment Determines the Future of the Internet

A session at Rocky Mountain 2011 IPv6 Summit

Tuesday 26th April, 2011

9:00am to 10:00am (MST)

Deployment of IPv6 is gaining momentum, as it is increasingly recognized as the basis for the continued growth of the Internet. With the IANA free pool of IPv4 addresses fully depleted, it is just a matter of time before each of the five RIRs is completely depleted of the resource, as well. Richard Jimmerson of the Internet Society (ISOC) will describe the great challenge the Internet faces going forward. As the Internet ages, concerns mount that it is losing the critical flexibility and responsiveness to new requirements that have been the basis for its growth and innovation in the past. The deployment of IPv6 is a bellwether for the Internet’s future: Are we able to ensure it continues to evolve as it grows? Or, will the Internet’s future be limited by an inability to move beyond the status quo?
