Subject: [apnic-talk] The Internet Society ‘Introduction to IPv6’ Online
Tutorial is now Available!
To: apnic-talk at apnic.net <apnic-talk at apnic.net>
The Internet Society has developed an online tutorial called “Introduction
to IPv6” to provide a brief primer for individuals who are interested in
better understanding IPv6.
The target audiences for this tutorial are recent university graduates,
network administrators, network engineers, and other parties with a working
knowledge of IPv4 who are looking to develop a basic knowledge of IPv6. The
tutorial consists of the following topics:
- Introduction to IPv6
- Understanding IPv6 Addresses
- Protocol, Neighbor Discovery, and SLAAC
As IPv4 exhaustion becomes more and more imminent, network operators across
the globe are taking a closer look at transitioning to IPv6. Given that the
Internet is now a critical global infrastructure for socio-economic growth
and is growing faster in developing countries, there are a number of key
drivers for IPv6 migration to be accelerated in these nations. A number of
these drivers are highlighted below:
1. Many developing countries have made considerable strides in ICT but
still trail developed nations as it pertains to Internet access. This
‘digital divide’ can be reduced by extending wireless networking and
mobility through the provisioning of a larger address space via IPv6.
1. By expediting the migration of IPv6, governments can deliver enhanced
support for public safety networks, as well as reduce the complexity
associated with the management of such. These broadband networks better
allow emergency services, such as police, fire and emergency medical
services, to respond to a wide array of natural, man-made and emerging
1. IPv6 is the ideal platform on which m-Health capabilities can be
built. M-Health applications include the application of mobile devices in
gathering clinical data, conveyance of health-related data to medical
practitioners, researchers, and patients, real-time patient monitoring
systems, and remote home care by means of mobile telemedicine.
1. The underlying protocol for smart grid technology is preferably IPv6.
Smart grid computing provides monitoring, analysis, control, increased
cyber-security and communication capabilities to electrical delivery
systems in order to maximize the throughput of the system while reducing
the energy consumption.
1. Mobile banking and mobile payments can substantially improve access
to banking products such as savings, deposits and insurance for lower
income demographics. These services provide ways and means for the unbanked
and underbanked persons to invest in productive assets, expand their
businesses and protect their livelihoods. IPv6 is emerging as the preferred
platform and is a core component of the wireless Internet architecture (2G,
3G, 4G and beyond).
