Irish IPv6 Summit 2009 (Dublin Castle)
Ireland's IPv6 Task Forceorganised and hosted an all-day event in Dublin Castle on Wednesday 28th January 2009. Over 150 delegates attended the event including those responsible for communications policy in the public and private sectors, managers and technical staff, academics and telecommunications operators and Internet Service Providers (ISPs).
The aim of the event was to raise awareness in the Irish private and public sectors about the need for immediate IPv6 deployment, and issues around such deployment. The aim now is that portal representing the slides and the video streams of the talks can act as an ongoing resource for those promoting IPv6 in Ireland and further afield.
The programme included an experienced panel of speakers with extensive expertise in these issues who represented a range of relevant perspectives. The talks did discuss opening problems with IPv6 and with IPv6 deployment, rather than skirt around them, but the overall message was still clear: no alternative to IPv6 is able to emerge in the short time frame we have before the current IPv4-based Internet starts to feel some real growing pains due to the depletion of the address space.
A complete programme is available on-line (with links to slides and video streams for each talk) or for download:
Live video streaming of the Internet (both IPv4 and IPv6) was be available when the event was running. There are now links from the on-line programme to a video of each talk.
