What is the impact of IPv6 on telecommunications, VoIP, unified communications, etc? Why should telecom operators care about IPv6? What VoIP systems already support IPv6? What efforts are underway within organizations like the IETF and the SIP Forum to ensure that telecommunications can work over IPv6?
I will be addressing all of these questions and more will be addressed in a free webinar offered by US Telecom tomorrow, Thursday, May 22, 2014 at 1:00pm US Eastern time. (17:00 UTC). The title of the session is "IPv6 and Telecom: IPv4 Is Finally Running Out. Now What?” and part of the abstract is:
As we approach the second anniversary of World IPv6 Launch on June 6, the word from the American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN) is that they are entering into their final stages of providing IPv4 addresses to service providers. While this has been talked about for many years, the reality is finally here. There will soon be no more new IPv4 addresses available for new networks and services. What can be done? What are some of the mitigation strategies and what are their challenges? What is involved with moving to using telecommunications over IPv6? Viewers of this event will hear answers to these questions and more!
I'm very much looking forward to this session that combines two of my personal passions: IPv6 and IP telephony/communications. This webinar is part of US Telecom's ongoing education events. Registration is free and open to all interested. I understand the presentation will be recorded if you are unable to view it live.
For people interested in learning more about IPv6 and telecom, one of the resources I'll be mentioning in the webinar will be our page on Deploy360 about IPv6 and VoIP/UC. We are seeking to keep this page current with links to information about IPv6 and IP communications. If you do know of additional telecom systems/services/software that supports IPv6, please do let me know either as a comment here or over on Deploy360 so that we can add the info to that page.
