September 7th 2015 will see the Global IPv6 Next Generation Internet Summit 2015 (hereinafter referred to as IPv6 Summit) held in the Presidential Hotel Beijing. The conference will be co-hosted by the IPv6 Forum and BII Group, under the theme of IPv6 approaching, are you ready?”which will be well attended by top-notch industrial experts both at home and abroad, hundreds of representatives from carriers across the globe, representatives of well-known vendors in the industry, experts from academic agencies, enterprise users, and many influential news outlets, who will discuss the mainstream plans and technical foci of large-scale IPv6 deployment, influence and challenges brought by IPv6 development on network security, Global Internet of Things boosted by IPv6, and other burning issues.


With the industrial consensus that IPv4 addresses are running out and IPv6 is the dominant trend, it seems that IPv6 is really approaching us. On one hand, many countries have run out of the IPv4 addresses, and hiking efforts committed by all governments to promoting next generation internet are now being made. China, for example, over recent years, has enacted Opinions on 12th Five-Year-Plan of Next Generation Internet, Opinions on Fully Implementing the Deployment of IPv6 in LTE Networks, etc. to fully boost the development of next generation internet. On the other hand, as the technology of transition from IPv4 to IPv6 is now maturing, the industrial demand has been enhanced, and the investment by carriers, vendors, etc. worldwide into IPv6 has been riding on an upward wave. Fuelled by various factors, the users of IPv6 are expanding in multiples, among which, more than 40% internet users in Belgium access internet by IPv6, and the penetration in the U.S., Germany, Peru, etc. are also increasing dramatically. It is worth mentioning that Mr. Fu Chengpeng, chief scientist with China Unicom points that IPv4 interest structure has been cast, and that it is hard to hike the speed while cut the price, which is easily possible with IPv6. It can be said that the government, carriers, vendors, and even internet users, through years of development and deployment, is ready for embracing the IPv6 era.
