Ministers from more than 40 countries are discussing the future of Internet economy at OECD meeting in Seol, Korea, 17-18 Jun. Discussions include security, competition, and strengthening the role of the Internet economy in enhancing social and economic development as well as agreement on new ways to improve global co-ordination and co-operation.
The Number Resource Organization (NRO), which is made up of the world's five Regional Internet Registries (RIRs) — AfriNIC, serving Africa; ARIN, serving North America; LACNIC, serving South America and the Caribbean; APNIC, serving the Asia Pacific region; and the RIPE NCC, serving Europe, Central Asia and the Middle East — today issued an appeal for investment in IPv6 infrastructure.
Geoff Huston, Chief Scientist at APNIC: "At present, a small percentage of the Internet infrastructure supports IPv6. Significant investment in the infrastructure of the network is required to enable the transition from IPv4 to IPv6. The cost of migrating the Internet infrastructure to IPv6 is significant considering the global scope of the task, but the cost of not making this investment will be far higher. And, ultimately, it's the end user population who will have to bear this cost."
