Keynote Speech - The New Internet Based on IPv6

 

By Latif Ladid, Chair at 5G World Alliance & President, IPv6 Forum, Luxembourg

The new internet based on IPv6 The IPv6 Deployment worldwide is becoming a reality now with some countries achieving more than 50% user penetration with Belgium (57%) and India  (50%) at the top ranking (http://labs.apnic.net/dists/v6dcc.html) and reaching double digits v6 coverage on Google IPv6 stats. May Autonomous Networks (ASN) reach more than 50% with v6 preferred or v6 capable: (http://labs.apnic.net/ipv6-measurement/Economies/US/). Over 500 Million users are accessing Internet over IPv6 and probably not even knowing  If this trend continues, we should achieve 50% by 2020 which would be the inflection point when the full roll-out of IPv6 becomes a strategic plumbing decision of the networks, a topic that is avoided so far due to many strategic and resources issues (lack of top management decision-making, lack of v6 skilled engineers and v6 deployment best practices, very limited ISP v6 access deployment, …). The deployment of Carrier-grade NAT is in full swing making networking and user experience more brittle. The security and cybersecurity issues are like always brushed over at this stage due mainly to lack of IPv6 security skills. New topics are more on the lime light such as Cloud Computing, Internet of Things, SDN, NFV, 5G, … However, these fields are taking IP networking for granted designing them on IPv4/NAT building non-scalable and non-end to end solutions. The IPv6 Forum is driving new initiatives to garner support and create awareness in these are with initiatives such as the IEEE Comsoc IoT, SDN-NFV and 5G: www.ipv6forum.org

Keynote Speech - Next-generation cities will need to be connected cities if we are to empower communities to address their most pressing needs. Are you ready to be a Connected City?

 

By Trudy Norris-Grey, Worldwide leader of CityNext

 Next-generation cities will need to be connected cities if we are to empower communities to address their most pressing needs. Are you ready to be a Connected City? 

Next-generation cities will be connected cities.  They will embrace a holistic approach to become more sustainable across economic, environmental, and social spheres. Connected cities will harness new digital capabilities to deliver citizen-centric services that reduce energy and water consumption, increase personal safety, deliver social care to our children, the elderly and the disabled and deliver high-quality health care to people in their homes. We will see faster commute times, improved student graduation rates, and better support for entrepreneurs so their ideas come to fruition more quickly. Operationally, city employees will have a real-time, one-city view so they can do their jobs better.
