Room D (Autoworld, 1st floor), 17/06/2011 (09:30-13:00)
In 2010, the Digital Agenda for Europe, as one of the seven flagship initiatives of the Europe 2020 Strategy, set out the key role of Information and Communication Technologies in order for Europe to succeed in its ambition for 2020. The Digital Agenda refers among other topics to the need for deployment of IPv6 since the IANA pool have now announced that they have no more IPv4 addresses to distribute.
The IPv6 Workshop will take place on 17 June 2011 from 9.30am to 1.00pm. It will consist of two roundtables involving public authorities of Member States and EU institutions, telecoms, internet service providers, content providers, and other relevant stakeholders with the task to explore issues and strategies for IPv6 deployment.
