The Second Internet (based on IPv6) for Decision Makers
The Second Internet for Decision Makers is a one-day seminar designed to help C-level executives and public sector officials make informed decisions about the "Second Internet" based on IPv6. They need to understand the new features and opportunities offered by the Second Internet and how these can affect their organizations.
This course consists entirely of focused, in-depth lectures designed for executives. There are no technical labs or hands-on exercises.
The Second Internet
IPv4 – the underlying infrastructure for the First Internet – is obsolete. Its design is three decades old and can no longer meet the needs of the expanding global network. To be publicly accessible on the Internet, a computer system must be assigned a unique IP address, but the pool of public IPv4 addresses is effectively depleted. The Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) handed out the last remaining blocks of IPv4 addresses to the five Regional Internet Registries (RIRs) last February 3, 2011. These RIRs in turn will allocate them to individuals and organizations, but those with high demand (like APNIC) are expected exhaust their supply in a few months. Measures to extend IPv4 have introduced complexity and numerous performance and reliability issues.
IPv6 is the replacement for IPv4 and is the building block of the Second Internet. Its new numbering scheme provides 340 undecillion (2128) globally unique addresses – more than the entire world will conceivably need for the next hundred years. IPv6 also has new features that enable the creation amazing new products and services, and improves the performance and reliability of many existing applications as well.
All users of the Internet will be impacted by the inevitable transition to IPv6. Organizations that do not migrate their networks smoothly will suffer increasingly serious issues with access to the Internet, and will be unable to use the new products and services that will only work on the Second Internet. Early adopters will have significant economic advantages over laggards in the 21st century.
InfoWeapons developed this introductory seminar in response to various requests from government organizations to train decision makers in their nations. It is now being made available to assist all organizations to understand and mitigate the impact of IPv6 to computing and the Internet.
Participants in this course will gain a basic understanding of the relevant differences between the First and Second Internet, the costs and benefits of moving to IPv6, how to manage their transition, and useful tips on where to go for resources, training, certification, and advice.
Designed for executives rather than engineers, this all-lecture seminar will immerse participants in the InfoWeapons' deep pool of IPv6 expertise and market knowledge, as well as allow them to meet and discuss issues with enterprise managers who have made the successful transition.
