IPv6, the Business Case - are you ready?

IPv6 is important, join us in Canberra 4 – 6 December to learn why
from 12 international speakers and 8 local speakers.

The issue is becoming urgent and you need transition plans now - but
first you need to understand the business case:
• Why implement IPv6?
• Where are the tools, checklists and support you need?
• What investment is required: and what is the return on investment?
• What really is Australia's state of readiness for IPv6?

IPv6 is already under deployment by Australia's major trading and
defence partners in Asia, Europe and North America. This powerful
Internet protocol offers enhanced mobility, better management, far
higher security levels, and a vast range of new Internet addresses.

The IPv6 Summit offers two days of international and Australian
experts  addressing these questions, plus a new technology showcase
and an optional one-day IPv6 Deployment Workshop: a hands-on guide to
easy implementation.

Location: Chifley on Northbourne, Canberra, Australia. Dates: Monday 4
– Wednesday 6 December 2006. For more details about the conference go
