At this technology deployment summit, government and industry leaders will report on applications, German and international initiatives for initial large-scale deployment of Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6). IPv6, the New 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 features.
The German IPv6 Summit is designed to highlight Germany's role in participating in the worldwide deployment of IPv6. In particular, the keynotes from
- The Honorable Dr. Dr. van der Giet, Director of IT at the German
Ministry of Defense and the
- Industry keynote will be addressed by Mr. Wolfgang Schmitz-CEO
Executive Vice-President Technology, T-Com
are both expected to set the roll out roadmap for IPv6 in Germany.
"The German Federal Ministry of Defense is very keen in taking leadership in promoting new generation Internet technologies (IPv6) and the German IPv6 Summit is an excellent milestone to demonstrate our support to IPv6 and ignite thereby large-scale deployment of IPv6 services in Germany," states Colonel Karrer at the Federal Ministry of Defense in Bonn.
Authoritative speakers at the summit from around the world will address the major deployment enablers and the vision to make IPv6 happen in Germany. Progress on IPv6 deployment in Europe, North America and Asia will also be covered with strong focus on applications case studies and scenarios.
"IPv6 is like gravity. It's an irresistible force. 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 and Chairperson of the European IPv6 Task Force. "Prosperous nations explore and exploring nations prosper."
