San Diego, CA (ots) - The IPv6 Forum has announced that the next
North American Global IPv6 Summit will be held June 23-27, 2003, in
San Diego, CA, at the San Diego Hilton. This technology deployment
summit will focus on progress and initiatives for initial deployment
of Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6), illustrated by business and
technology models. IPv6, the Next Generation Internet, preserves
everything that's good about today's Internet -- and adds much more:
practically unlimited IP address space, stateless auto-configuration,
mobile user support, mandatory security and many other enhancing
This year, the North American Global IPv6 Summit will surpass
previous IPv6 Forum events in highlighting North America's crucial
role in participating in worldwide deployment of IPv6. In particular,
the conference keynote from The Honorable Howard A. Schmidt, Chair of
the President's Critical Infrastructure Protection Board, The White
House, and the industry keynote from Next Generation Internet
advocate, Mr. Jawad Khaki, Corporate Vice President at Microsoft, are
expected to set IPv6 on the launch pad.
Speakers at the summit in San Diego will address the major
achievements of the North American IPv6 Task Force, formed in July of
2001, and the IPv6 Forum in winning support from industry and
government in the U.S. Progress on IPv6 deployment in Europe and Asia
will also be covered, including updates from the European Commission
IPv6 Task Force, the Japan IPv6 Promotion Council and the collective
Asia Pacific IPv6 initiatives.
"IPv6 is the core technology that will transition the planet Earth
to 21st century communications using the Internet and specifically
with wireless mobile IPv6 devices," said Jim Bound, Chair of IPv6
Forum Technical Directorate and Chair of the North American IPv6 Task
Force. "We believe the IPv6 Summit in San Diego provides the best
single opportunity for the North American community to learn about
the latest global developments in IPv6 technology."
"Internet ubiquity and end-to-end transparency are dual
large-scale benefits worth the investment to enable Internet for
everyone and everything," said Latif Ladid, IPv6 Forum President.
"The IPv6 design is a major fix, and everyone is clearly called upon
to make it happen."
