On September 22 2009 ISOC Chapters held an E-meeting to discuss two new briefings on IPv6 deployment.
Amongst the conclusions were that, for competitive advantage and business continuity, stakeholders – rather than sitting on their hands waiting for a ‘killer app’ or an IPv4 ‘crisis’ – need to institute a robust policy of factoring IPv6 deployment into network ‘refresh’ cycles. Chapters can help by raising awareness. Governments, in particular, can be prevailed upon to assist the process by leading by example. Addressing is as important as broadband, both are important enablers of innovation and growth.
