Slides: How IPv6 Will Impact SIP and Telecommunications

By Dan YorkDirector, Internet Technology

How will IPv6 impact telecom?  And in particular the open standard of the SIP protocol?  Will telecommunications “just work” with IPv6? Or will it break?

I recently attended the 7th Annual Real-Time Communications Conference sponsored by the Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT) and gave a presentation on this topic. I covered the basics of IPv6, why we’re having the issue we are now, what the particular “gotchas” are with IPv6 and SIP, and then ended with some resources and “next step” links.

You can view my “How IPv6 Will Impact SIP and Telecom” slides online and I’m hoping to be able to put up an audio recording of the session soon.   Note that if you would like me to present a talk like this at a conference, we are available to speak at events.
