Session teaser

What will happen to the Internet if we continue to use legacy technologies like IPv4?

Session description

Despite being around for over 20 year, IPv6 is still not the dominant IP version. IPv4, despite the obvious addressing limitations, is still the norm for Internet communication. In some parts of the world, where IPv4 addresses are exhausted (and therefore a user has no direct IPv4 address), you need alternative techniques such as NAT64. In other parts of the world, you see Carrier Grade NAT (or sometimes NAT over NAT over NAT) to multiplex the existing few IPv4 addresses. What can we do to boost IPv6 adoption? Who needs to be ultimately responsible for driving this necessary change?

This session is accessible for non-technical people, and a small technical introduction will cover the above concepts (and others).


Slide presentation followed by open discussion.
