Presentation abstract

This presentation aims at increasing awareness of the Internet community as well as the EC on ITU’s work in IPv6 and highlight opportunities for collaboration.   ITU  will introduce in detail the updated mandate on IPv6 given to it by its membership, its ongoing work in this area and will present ITU statistics on the latest global Internet development.

ITU’s quadrennial Plenipotentiary Conference (PP10) recently concluded in October 2010 in Guadalajara, Mexico. In this presentation, we will introduce ITU’s post-PP10 mandate in Internet-related issues, especially the new Resolution related to IPv6.  This new Resolution calls upon ITU to assist Member States in their transition from IPv4 to IPv6 by providing support in the management and allocation of IPv6 resources. This includes capacity building and raising awareness as well as assisting Member States in monitoring the current IP address allocation mechanism.
