Pioneers of the IPv6-based New Internet Meet in September 2005 in Silicon Valley

BOSTON --(Business Wire)-- July 11, 2005 -- The North American IPv6 Task Force and the IPv6 Forum today announced that the world class North American IPv6 Technology Conference 1 will be held September 19-22, 2005 at San Jose State University in San Jose, California, combined with an IPv6 solution demo area. The North American IPv6 Technology Conference 1 will gather the founders and the most innovative and influential leaders from the global Internet community to discuss strategic and deployment issues related to the next generation Internet protocol, Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6). Registration to the event is open and available online (with limited seating) at:

The registration fee of USD $395 for the 3-day conference, $100 for the day-long tutorial and sponsorship fee of USD $3500 have been kept at an extremely affordable industry level.

The NAv6TF North American IPv6 Technology Conference 1 will provide attendees four days of IPv6 technology knowledge transfer to assist participants at the conference with the planning and systems analysis for IPv6 deployment. NAv6TF networking and IPv6 subject matter experts will discuss the architectural principles, technology advantages, mobility, transition, security, porting of applications, and other topics in depth.

"IPv6 is imperative for the restoration of an end-to-end Internet. Come to this San Jose event, and learn how it can be accomplished," said Jim Bound, CTO IPv6 Forum and Chair NAv6TF.

"IPv6 is coming to the Silicon Valley. IPv6 has as much IPv6 addresses as sand in the planet, so good for silicon," said Latif Ladid, President of the IPv6 Forum.

"Silicon Valley has proven to be one of the greatest locations on the planet for marrying different technologies into products and services that have advanced all of our lives in some way. IPv6, as a building block in the New Internet, is going to be fundamental to the continuation of that process. It is imperative that the many companies and organizations of the Valley avail themselves of this opportunity," stressed Yurie Rich, Business Director, NAv6TF.
