Charmed Technology, Inc
to Host North American Global IPv6 Summit,
San Diego, CA, June 23 – 27, 2003
Summit to focus on business
& technology models
to ignite initial deployment of IPv6
CA, February 10, 2003 - The IPv6 Forum has announced that the
next North American Global IPv6 Summit will be held June 23 - 27, 2003
in San Diego, CA, at the San Diego Hilton. This technology deployment
summit will focus on progress and initiatives for initial deployment of
Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6), illustrated by business and technology
models. IPv6, the Next Generation Internet, preserves everything
that's good about today's Internet - and adds much more: practically unlimited
IP address space, stateless auto-configuration, mobile user support, mandatory
security and many other enhancing features.
This year, the North American Global IPv6 Summit will surpass previous
IPv6 Forum events in highlighting North America's crucial role in participating
in worldwide deployment of IPv6. In particular, the conference keynote
from The Honorable Howard A. Schmidt, Chair of the President's Critical
Infrastructure Protection Board, The White House, and the industry keynote
from Next Generation Internet advocate, Mr. Jawad Khaki, Corporate Vice
President at Microsoft, are expected to set IPv6 on the launch pad.
Speakers at the
summit in San Diego will address the major achievements of the North American
IPv6 Task Force, formed in July of 2001, and the IPv6 Forum in winning
support from industry and government in the US. Progress on IPv6 deployment
in Europe and Asia will also be covered, including updates from the European
Commission IPv6 Task Force, the Japan IPv6 Promotion Council and the collective
Asia Pacific IPv6 initiatives.
"IPv6 is the core technology that will transition the planet earth
to 21st century communications using the Internet and specifically with
wireless mobile IPv6 devices," said Jim Bound, Chair of IPv6 Forum
Technical Directorate and Chair of the North American IPv6 Task Force.
"We believe the IPv6 Summit in San Diego provides the best single
opportunity for the North American community to learn about the latest
global developments in IPv6 technology."
"Internet ubiquity and end-to-end transparency are dual large-scale
benefits worth the investment to enable Internet for everyone and everything,"
said Latif Ladid, IPv6 Forum President. "The IPv6 design is a major
fix and everyone is clearly called upon to make it happen."
