World IPv6 Launch

The Way Forward for Singapore

6 June 2012

6 June 2012 is the official day for World IPv6 Launch. Major Internet service providers (ISPs), home networking equipment manufacturers, and web companies around the world are coming together to enable their Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) products and services permanently.

Co-organized by IPv6 Forum Singapore (IFS), Internet Society Singapore (ISOC) and the Info-communications Development Authority of Singapore (iDA), the World IPv6 Launch event is intended to motivate organizations across the industry in Singapore to prepare for and permanently enable IPv6 on their products and services as Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) address space runs out. This also represents a major milestone in the global deployment of IPv6. As the successor to the current Internet Protocol, IPv4, IPv6 is critical to the Internet’s continued growth as a platform for innovation and economic development.

Singapore is a major trading hub and a major financial centre in the region. If organisations in Singapore do not embrace IPv6, what impact will this have for Singapore’s role in the region?

Target Audience: Business Owners, Project Managers, CIO, CTO, IT Managers, IT Executives, Pre-Sales Consultants and Engineers from various industry.
