NTT America Highlights Today’s Applications at IPv6 Implementors Conference
New York, NY – NTT America, a wholly owned U.S. subsidiary of NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com) and a global IP network services provider, today announced Cody Christman, NTT America’s Director of Product Engineering, will discuss how to enhance existing networks to support both IPv6 and IPv4 as well as how to leverage the benefits IPv6 brings to current and emerging applications at the IPv6 Implementors Conference. The conference, which will be held March 19 and 20, 2009 in Mountain View, CA, will focus on addressing and sharing IPv6 implementation experience, advice and associated research.
IPv6 is the successor to IPv4, the current protocol used on the Internet. Implementing IPv6 offers a variety of benefits including an almost infinite address space, scalability, better security, lower capital and operational expense and a number of enhancements for multicast and quality of service support.
“We have seen a growing interest in IPv6, particularly in how to smoothly make the transition from a company’s current network infrastructure,” said Cody Christman, Director of Product Engineering, NTT America. “We have also had successful implementations of emerging applications such as IPTV and earthquake monitoring systems that really show the benefits of using IPv6 today.”
Both network engineers and business professionals will need to understand IPv6 capabilities and learn how to optimally use the dramatically larger and more flexible address space, automatic “plug and play” features, better end-to-end security, and broader support for mobile devices. The accelerated pace of IPv6 deployment internationally means that companies need to start to test and roll out content to the IPv6 side of the Web in the near term. With the IPv6 technology in place, business can take advantage of features that lower cost and complexity of peer to peer communication, improve network mobility for wireless devices and allow devices to self configure, creating new business opportunities for content and commerce on the Web.
NTT America has been an advocate for the advancement of IPv6 for more than a decade. The company has just launched a microsite to provide a forum for those interested in all aspects of IPv6 education and deployment to share information, questions and insights. The IPv6 microsite can be found here: www.v6atwork.com. In January 2008 and again in 2009, NTT America was selected by the Congressional Internet Caucus Advisory Committee (ICAC) to demonstrate NTT Com’s IPv6 Internet-based Earthquake Early Warning System and an implementation of IPTV over IPv6. The company also spoke at this year’s International CES about consumer-based IPv6 applications.
