Programme

Thursday, 4 September 2008
08:30 − 09:30 Meeting registration
09:30 − 10:00 Opening Session
  • Welcome address:
    • Malcolm Johnson, Director, Telecommunication Standardization Bureau, ITU
      [ BIOGRAPHY | SPEECH ]
  • Opening remarks
    • Nabil Kisrawi, Permanent representative to ITU, S.T.E. (Syria); Chairman of the Arab Standardization Group
    • Detlef Eckert, Advisor, European Commission (EC)
       [ BIOGRAPHY ]
10:00 − 10:30 Coffee/tea break: supported by Tiscali International Network
10:30 − 12:30 Session 1: Factual introduction: Current situation

Session Chair: Detlef Eckert, Advisor, European Commission (EC) [ BIOGRAPHY ]

Objectives: This session will provide the status of the current assignment of IPv4 and IPv6, including an overview of real figures, such as the status of current regulatory and policy regimes, and the situation in developing countries.
 
12:30 − 14:00 Lunch
14:00 − 15:45 Session 2: Technical issues of IPv6 migration

Session Chair: Detlef Eckert, Advisor, European Commission (EC) [ BIOGRAPHY ]

Objectives: This session will address current technical debates and key questions to enable IPv4-IPv6 migration. The proposed technical scenarios expected in migrating to IPv6 will be presented, including the technical impediments, the threats and the opportunities. It will also analyse how ITU can use its strength as a unique international SDO and global dialogue platform to facilitate the process of NGN deployment in relation with IPv4-Ipv6 migration. In addition, techniques used to stretch the usage of IPv4, e.g. Network Address Translation Protocol (NAT), will be analyzed. This session will see inputs from all relevant ITU Sectors.
  • IPv6, DNS & ICANN’s Role, Leo Vegoda, ICANN and IANA
     [ BIOGRAPHY | ABSTRACT | PRESENTATION ]
  • Impact of IPv6 to an NGN and migration strategies, Gyu Myoung Lee, Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute (ETRI)
     [ BIOGRAPHY | ABSTRACT | PRESENTATION ]
  • IPv6 applications: Business and Technical challenges from EUv6 Task Force perspective, Tayeb Ben Meriem, European IPv6 Task Force
     [ BIOGRAPHY | PRESENTATION ]
  • IPv6 Maturity and Deployment Challenges, Sheng Jiang, HUAWEI Technologies Co. Ltd
     [ BIOGRAPHY | PRESENTATION ]
15:45 − 16:15 Coffee/tea break: supported by Tiscali International Network
16:15 − 17:45 Session 3: Economic dimension of IPv6 adoption. What is at stake?

Session Chair: Detlef Eckert, Advisor, European Commission (EC) [ BIOGRAPHY ]

Objectives: This session will introduce contributions to ITU-T Study Group 2 (C109 and report from SG2 CG on IPv6) and Study Group 3 (C30, C30-add.1, C50, C57) as well as other related documents submitted to this workshop.
  • Scarcity in IPv4 Addresses Transfer Market and the Regional Internet Address Registries, Milton Mueller,  Professor, Syracuse University School of Information Studies; XS4All Professor, Delft University of Technology
     [ ABSTRACT | PRESENTATION ]
  • SG2 Contributions, Didier Le Moine, Convener, ITU-T SG2 CG on IPv6
    [ BIOGRAPHY ]
  • SG3 Contributions, Nabil Kisrawi, Permanent representative to ITU, S.T.E. (Syria); Chairman of the Arab Standardization Group
17:45 − 18:00 Daily wrap-up
18:30 − 20:00 Reception: supported by Cisco
 
Friday, 5 September 2008
09:00 − 10:30 Session 4: Economic, tariff and accounting issues related to IP address allocation

Session Chair: Nabil Kisrawi, Permanent representative to ITU, S.T.E. (Syria); Chairman of the Arab Standardization Group

Objectives: This session will try to answer to the questions raised by contribution 30 and its Addendum to ITU-T Study Group 3.

In particular:
  1. What economic or tariff incentives could be put in place in order to make sure that IPv4 addresses allocated by the RIRs are used efficiently, when they are not any longer used; that they are given back to the global community; and are not hoarded?
  2. What are the direct and indirect costs related to fraud, spam, etc. that is facilitated because of NATing and other practices currently used to conserve IPv4 addresses, because those practices make it more difficult to trace the origin of particular packets or E-Mail messages?
  3. What are the costs of migration to IPv6, in particular for developing countries, for example for:
    • Capacity building
    • New equipment (routers, etc.)
    • Configuration (e.g. maintenance of dual-stacks, tunnelling, etc.)
  4. What, if any, is the network externalities involved in the migration from IPv4 to IPv6?
  5. What would be the economic or tariff effects if a secondary market is created for IPv4 addresses (that is, allowing current holders of IPv4 addresses to sell them to other organizations)?
  6. What would be the impact — in particular for developing countries, taking into account that tariffs should be cost-oriented — of the growing scarcity of IPv4 addresses and of a), b) and c) above on:
    • Settlement rates for voice traffic that is carried over IP networks at the wholesale (backbone) level.
    • International Internet connectivity (IIC) (ITU-T Recommendation D.50)
    • Termination rates for IP telephony
    • Next generation networks (NGN)
  7. ITU role in this domain, enhancing international cooperation
Open discussion
10:30 − 11:00 Coffee/tea break: supported by Tiscali International Network
11:00 − 12:30 Session 4 (continued) : Economic, tariff and accounting issues related to IP address allocation


Session Chair: Nabil Kisrawi, Permanent representative to ITU, S.T.E. (Syria); Chairman of the Arab Standardization Group

Objectives: This session will continue the work initiated in the morning in answering the questions raised by contribution 30 and its Addendum to ITU-T Study Group 3.

Open discussion
12:30 − 14:00 Lunch
14:00 − 16:00 Session 5: Conclusions and meeting wrap-up, including development and enhanced cooperation issues.


Session Chair: Nabil Kisrawi, Permanent representative to ITU, S.T.E. (Syria); Chairman of the Arab Standardization Group

Objectives: This session will summarize the discussions and answers to the questions discussed in previous sessions, with the aim of identifying achievable and concrete follow-up actions.

This session will also try to highlight the necessary requirements to properly assist developing countries in the migration to IPv6 as well as international cooperation with other relevant bodies.
