New Generation of the Internet – The Evolution of IPv6
新一代互聯網 – IPv6時代
Hong Kong Science & Technology Parks Corporation is delighted to co-host the upcoming Exchange @ Science Park with Internet Society Hong Kong (ISOC HK) aiming to bring audience an overview of the new generation of the Internet – the evolution of IPv6.
2011 is a pivotal year for the Internet as the address space used by the current version of the Internet protocol, IPv4, has already been fully depleted earlier this year. Without action, we risk increased costs and limited functionality online for Internet users everywhere. The only long-term solution to this problem is adoption of IPv6, which provides over 4 billion times more space.
Despite the exhaustion of the available IPv4 address pool announced on 3 February 2011, deployment of IPv6 remains limited around the globe. Faced with the complete depletion of IPv4 addresses, all stakeholders must implement IPv6 as soon as possible in order to ensure the long-term growth of their businesses. It should also be noted that any further delay in IPv6 adoption will make the Internet fragmented and communications among Internet users will be affected seriously.
In the first part, ISOC-HK will give a brief overview of the roles and contributions of ISOC in network standard and technology development in the world. The second part will touch on IPv6 including the background of IPv6, the status of deployment in the Asia Pacific Region and Hong Kong, the operational issues, deployment problems, security issues and transition mechanism.
We are very glad to have different honorable guests to share the latest development of the IPv6:
