IPv6 Today - Technology and Deployment

Gunter Van de Velde writes "The integration and adoption of IPv6, also known as the Next Generation of the Internet Protocol is happening throughout the World at this very moment. To maintain global competitiveness, governments are mandating, encouraging or actively supporting the adoption of IPv6 to prepare their respective economies for the future communication infrastructures. Business organizations are increasingly mindful of the IPv4 address space depletion and see within IPv6 a way to solve pressing technical problems while IPv6 technology continues to evolve beyond IPv4 capabilities. Communications equipment manufacturers and applications developers are actively integrating IPv6 in their products based on market demands.

IPv6 continues to represent a fertile area of technology innovation and investigation. IPv6 is opening the way to new successful research projects. Leading edge Internet Service Providers are guiding the way to a new kind of Internet where any-to-any reachability is not a vivid dream but a notion of reality in production IPv6 networks that have been commercially deployed. National Research and Educational Networks together with internationally known hardware vendors, Service Providers and commercial enterprises have generated a great amount of expertise in designing, deploying and operating IPv6 networks and services. This knowledge can be leveraged to accelerate the deployment of the protocol worldwide.

This workshop brings together globally known IPv6 research and deployment experts that will share their work and experience. The audience will hear the latest technological developments in the field and will be provided with examples of successful IPv6 deployments; it will be offered an opportunity to learn what to expect from IPv6 and to prepare for it. The goal of the workshop is to disseminate the IPv6 knowledge and facilitate IPv6 deployment and research.

We solicit both academic, research, and industrial contributions. The IPv6TD 2007 Proceedings will be published by IEEE Computer Society and posted on Xplore IEEE system. A best paper award will be granted by the IARIA’s award selection committee.
