Workshop Proposal 4

Large-Scale IPv6 Technology Deployment – From Millions to Billions -

Workshop Title: Large-Scale IPv6 Technology Deployment – From Millions to Billions -

Thematic Area of Interest: Internet as an Engine for Growth and Advancement

Specific Issues of Discussion:

IPv6 has been under development for 20 years since IETF IPng WG in 1993.  Even though need for IPv6 is clear and most of IPv6 technology development has been done,  the IPv6 deployment has been very slow.

In the workshop, we would like to address the following;

A. Major IPv6 technology deployments from Asia : 90 minutes
B. Keynote speech on the past, present and future of IPv6 :  45 minutes
C. Panel discussion on “How can we pick up momentum on IPv6 deployment, and how can Asia lead the deployment?” : 45 minutes

A. Major IPv6 technology deployment from Asia
     Session Chair: Paul Wilson

We present on the following major deployments of IPv6 technology, each of which had the deployment with one million or more users;

A.1 China
Speaker:  Xing Li
CERNET2 has been one of the major IPv6 deployments in the world.
- How was CERNET2 deployed?
 - What would CERNET do if it could do again? Any recommendation to other research and education networks? 
– How could China move forward on major IPv6 deployment based on CERNET2 experience?

A.2 Japan
Speaker: Ichiro Mizukoshi
NTT East and West deployed IPv6 for its broadband service, Flets.
- How did NTT deploy?
- What would NTT do if it could do again?  Any recommendation to other countries?
- How could NTT move from IPv6-based broadband service as an intranet to the Internet?

A.3 Korea
Speaker: Soohong Park
Samsung is the first mobile phone company to support Verizon’s IPv6 mobile phone service with Galaxy rtphones, followed by other major mobile phone service providers in USA.
 - How did Samsung provide mobile phones with IPv6 capability to Verizon and other mobile phone service providers in USA?             
- What is the reason to hinder explosive growth on IPv6-based smartphones in USA? 
- What prevents Asian countries such as China, Japan and Korea to move to IPv6-based mobile phone services?

B. Keynote speech on IPv6: past, present and future
Session Chair: Kilnam Chon
Speaker: Geoff Huston

The presentation will cover the origine of the Ipv6 effort, a description of the  changes between Ipv4 and Ipv6 and an 
insight as to why these changes were incorporated into the Ipv6 technology specification, and a look at the issues
going forward.

C. Panel Discussion
Session Chair: Kilnam Chon
 Panelists: Xing Li, Ichiro Mizukoshi, Soohong Park, Geoff Huston, Paul Wilson

c-1. How can we pick up momentum on IPv6 deployment from the current million users/devices to billion users/devices in  the following and other areas?
- Mobile phone services
- Broadband wireline services
- Automobile
- Internet of Things
c-2 How can Asia lead IPv6 deployment globally?
c-3 What is the implication of IPv6 deployment on the Internet Governance
