Information Webinar – Moving to IPv6

it@cork in association with INEX is excited to bring you this exciting information webinar on Moving to IPv6

As the demand for globally unique IP addresses increases making the transition from IPv4 to IPv4/IPv6 hybrid networks is now becoming critical.

IPv6 is the next generation Internet Protocol (IP) standard that provides an identification and location system for every computer, laptop and effectively every other connected device to the internet.

With the global population expected to reach 9.7bn by 2050 and the number of connected devices on the planet expected to grow to 7.6bn by 2030, IPv6 will provide the capacity and infrastructure to cope with this phenomenal growth and demand for connected devices.

IPv6 will provide more than 340 trillion, trillion, trillion IP addresses, allowing for an almost infinite range of devices to connect directly with one another, and helps ensure the Internet can continue its current growth rate indefinitely.

During this informative session expert panellists Jerry Sweeney (CloudCIX) and Nick Hilliard (INEX) will discuss and explain the Binary, Decimal & Hexadecimal notations involved in the move to IPv6.

This technical write talk will help system administrators, and their business managers, making the transition from IPv4 to IPv4/IPv6 hybrid networks. IPv6 can be daunting for IT System Administrators and Networking Engineers because it is very different from IPv4 and it uses hexadecimal notation. This talk will be delivered in a tutorial format and attendees are invited to participate in worked calculation examples.
