Latif Ladid: Abstract
Business Internet road map for Luxembourg
Latif Ladid, President, IPv6 ForumIPv6 will be largely driven by technology refresh and technology/business case. The perception that IPv6 will replace IPv4 is incorrect, since IPv6 was designed to cater for many deployment scenarios, starting with extension of the packet technology and therefore supporting IPv4 with transition models to keep IPv4 working even for ever, and then to cater for new uses and new models that require a combination of features that were not tightly designed or scalable in IPv4 like IP mobility, end to end connectivity, end to end services, ad hoc services; to the extreme scenario where IP becomes a commodity service enabling lowest-cost deployment of large-scale sensor networks, RFID, IP in the car, to any imaginable scenario where networking adds value to commodity. This is called progress.
IPv6 readiness is the lowest-cost option, as it would make the networks future-proof. There's an educational process involved. Again, the transition scenarios are quite wide and there's no size that fits all. The geopolitical dimension is crucial for a country like Luxembourg to stay or remain among the most advanced IT nations in Europe. This calls for a collective strategic effort to design a transition roadmap to call on everyone’s contribution and add value.
