Activity: Overview of IPv6: Bridging the Digital Divide
website of the activity
Activity description: The purpose of this project is to address a key digital divide issue – the threat to continued Internet access due to a limitation on IP addresses. The current standard, Internet Protocol version 4 (Ipv4), limits the number of Internet Protocol (IP) addresses available globally. As the demand for new IP addresses grows due to new users and new devices, the threat exists that many users will be unable to obtain IP addresses for Internet access. This lack of access will threaten all other efforts to bridge the digital divide. It is essential that policy makers, regulators, and decision makers in APEC economies are familiar with the issues relating to the need to move from IPv4 to IPv6 including transition, operation, financial impact, applications, security, and quality of service issues. This short-term training course was designed to ensure that APEC policy makers, regulators, and decision makers have the information necessary to make appropriate decisions and policies to address the move from Internet Protocol version 4 to Internet Protocol version 6.
