Editor’s note: i2010 is an attempt to control the internet and IPv6 is the favorite of China’s “Next Generation Internet,” networking together all aspects of China’s surveillance state, from security cameras to taxis to the cameras filming the Olympic events.
The European Commission has previously announced, as a part of their i2010 initiative, an action plan to see IPv6 widely deployed in Europe by 2010. The EC is specific about what it means by “widely deployed”: They intend, by 2010, that 25% of European users “should be able to connect to the IPv6 Internet and access their most important content and service providers,” according to a May 2008 Communication. More than 30 European IPv6 R&D projects have already been funded because of this initiative, and there is confidence that the expertise has been gained to move the action plan forward.
I’m in Brussels, attending the IPv6 Day event at European Union headquarters, to learn more about what has been accomplished in Europe so far and what the EC’s next steps will be. This full-day event is a gathering of IPv6 experts from around the world, with the objective of clarifying the European IPv6 directions and objectives.
The conference agenda is organized around three fundamental topics: content providers, IPv6 deployment, and research. Behind each of these topics are 6-10 speakers sharing their experiences with the attendees.
