Next Generation Internet Protocol Critical for Future Economic Growth

IPv6 Summit in Denver Prepares Industry for Transition

(DENVER) – The Rocky Mountain Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) Task
Force (RMv6TF), in conjunction with Regional North America IPv6 Task
Forces, announced it will host the 2013 North American IPv6 Summit
technology conference for the sixth year in a row on April 17-19, 2013 at
the Grand Hyatt in Denver, Colorado.
The largest IPv6 conference in North America this year, the summit will
host more than 500 IPv6 networking professionals including technology
leaders, systems architects, engineers and researchers. This
career-enhancing event will help attendees master the transition to IPv6,
offer IPv6 certification, and ensure network professionals stay relevant
and ahead of the curve in their profession through the next 10 years. The
educational event includes an optional pre-conference tutorial session and
a 2-day general session on IPv6 related topics.

 “With the ever-growing number of devices connected to the Internet, the
transition to IPv6 is critical. The Internet’s continued growth and need
for more IP addresses ensures us that IPv6 is the key to the continued
economic growth,” said Scott Hogg, Chair-Emeritus, RMv6TF
“The speaker lineup includes a diverse number of presentations and
demonstrations from IPv6 professionals and exhibitors with practical
information and real experience. Students are encouraged to submit an
abstract based on forward-thinking research and development that showcases
current and future IPv6 topics no later than March 1, 2013. One submission
will be selected by a panel of IPv6 experts and invited to attend the
conference and present their research to colleagues and leaders in the
industry. Additionally, the selected speaker will receive a stipend from
