ITU-T is hosting a workshop on IPv6 organized in cooperation with the European Union’s IPv6 Task Force Steering Committee (IPv6 EU TF-SC) and the IPv6 Forum.
Taking place in Geneva, 22 - 23 June 2005, the event will examine the current status of IPv6, with regards to rollout, policy, technology and applications. An additional aim will be to promote awareness of IPv6 to countries where Internet use is relatively low. The workshop will also follow-up on recent comments sent to the Director of ITU-T’s secretariat, the Telecommunication Standardization Bureau (TSB) on the management and distribution of IP addresses.
Presentations will come from key standards making organizations, policy advisers and the private sector.
· Review the current development of IPv6 network, technology and applications
· Bring more awareness to developing countries on the development of IPv6
· Further discuss comments sent to the Director of TSB concerning resource management policy
