IPv6 for Decision Makers
All users of the Internet will be impacted by the inevitable transition to the Second Internet. The current network communications infrastructure of the Internet, known as IPv4, is over 30 years old and its design can no longer meet the needs of the expanding global network. In fact, existing pools of IPv4 addresses (which are required to access the Internet) at the IANA level will be depleted around February 2011, and those of RIRs (like APNIC) will be depleted 6 to 9 months later, based on the best estimates. IPv6 is the replacement for IPv4 and is the building block of the Second Internet.
Organizations that don’t migrate smoothly by then will suffer increasingly serious issues with access to the Internet, and be unable to use amazing 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.
The development of this introductory seminar was based on a specific request from the Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA) to train decision makers in that nation. It is intended for CEOs, CIOs, and other corporate decision makers who need to understand the new features and opportunities offered by the Second Internet based on IPv6 -- and how these can affect their organizations.
To be held at in scenic Cebu City, the seminar will immerse participants in the company's deep pool of IPv6 technology expertise and allow them to take advantage of its readily available production-grade IPv6 networks, product testing facilities, and IPv6 product market knowledge. The seminar's coverage includes an introduction to the basic concepts of IPv6 and how these differ from IPv4, new applications made available by this technology, and the various transition mechanisms and likely migration paths to help current networks move to IPv6.
The seminar does not assume any prior technical experience with IP networks. Some knowledge of Internet applications is helpful but not essential.
