The V6 World Congress will once again bring together ISPs, Enterprises, equipment vendors, and industry leaders to share their experiences, skills, and knowledge of deploying IPv6 worldwide.
V6 World Delegates: 50% Service Providers, 10% Enterprises
Figures demonstrate that 50% of the delegates were service providers, 25% vendors, 10% enterprises, 5% government representatives and 10% researchers.
Moreover, 47% of the delegates came from the European Union countries, 12% from the Middle East, 11% from Russia and non EU countries, 16% from North America, 10% from Asia, and 4% from South America.
The 2014 agenda: Internet of Things, SDN and Enterprise Deployments
The 2014 edition will place particular emphasis on Internet of Things, SDN issues and Enterprises deployments.
Indeed, the Internet of Things area is ramping up in terms of hype. Even if the Internet community doesn’t yet believe that the IoT is going to matter or the IoT world doesn’t believe they want to connect to Internet, both share IPv6. While the IPv6 Internet deployment ramps up, the IoT world starts to move to IPv6.
Other sessions will cover in detail BYOD and SDN issues.
Finally, enterprise deployments will receive significant focus in the conference agenda.
An IPv6 Connection for the Delegates
Delegates at V6 World and the collocated MPLS & SDN World will be given the opportunity to experience demonstrations of IPv6 applications, delivered through the Marriott Paris Rive Gauche.
The Interop Platform
The European Advanced Networking Test Center ( EANTC) in collaboration with Upperside Conferences will invite industrials to a multi-vendor MPLS & Ethernet interoperability test in January 2014, that will be demonstrated during the MPLS and Ethernet World Congress.
For the 2013 edition, the tests focused on the following scenarios:
Software Defined Networking (SDN)
Resilient Multicast VPN Services
IPv6 Migration Scenarios
Carrier Ethernet 2.0
The tests were performed and verified in detail at a closed doors hot staging at EANTC lab in Berlin.
The successful results of the tests were documented in a white paper released by EANTC during the congress.
