2011AustralianIPv6SummitToday in Melbourne, Australia, the director of our program, Richard Jimmerson, is speaking at the Australian IPv6 Summit 2011 on the topic of “How We Get There From Here: ISOC and the Future of the Internet“. The abstract of his session is:

We all know IPv4 is out and IPv6 is in. We also know we’ve got a long way to go before we get to full IPv6 deployment. Given the time discrepancy, questions also remain about the future of the Internet.

  • Is it losing the critical flexibility and responsiveness to new requirements that have been the basis for its growth and innovation in the past?
  • How do we make sure it continues to evolve as it grows?
  • Will its future be limited by an inability to move beyond the status quo?

The Internet Society (ISOC) has been hard at work encouraging IPv6 deployment, with activities like organizing industry events and policy discussions, World IPv6 Day, and several new staff initiatives to continue the momentum IPv6 is finally starting to gain. Richard Jimmerson will explore some of the deployment challenges the industry has faced and describe the numerous and varied efforts ISOC has undertaken to facilitate worldwide IPv6 adoption as well as the deployment of other new Internet standards and technology.
