Vint Cerf to headline IPv6 Hui
The New Zealand IPv6 Steering Group announces that ‘Father of the Internet’ and global IPv6 proponent Dr Vint Cerf is visiting New Zealand this month to headline the IPv6 Hui.

The IPv6 Hui is a conference that is being held in three cities in August - Christchurch, Auckland and Wellington. Dr Cerf is keynote speaker for the Auckland and Wellington legs.

ICT Minister Steven Joyce will be delivering a ministerial address at the Wellington event and IPv6 expert Professor Hiroshi Esaki from Tokyo University will keynote the Christchurch event via videoconference.

Other speakers include Cisco Senior Technical Leader Tony Hain, and Tony Hill and Kevin Karp from Australian organisation IPv6Now.

Dr Cerf says that New Zealand is well placed to join leading countries in accelerating its adoption of IPv6 (Internet Protocol Version 6), the next generation Internet addressing protocol.

“The great thing about New Zealand is that it is possible to bring the key public and private decision makers into a room, over a series of only three days, and explore and debate an issue of importance to the nation.

“I’m looking forward to my visit, talking to public and private sector CIOs, IT Managers and CTOs, and identifying how we can ensure a timely uptake of IPv6 in New Zealand.”

The IPv6 Hui will tackle head-on the need to develop roadmaps for industry and corporate networks to implement Internet Protocol Version 6 in New Zealand. Survey data on IPv6 readiness in New Zealand will also be released at the event.

The event is being overseen by the New Zealand IPv6 Steering Group, convened by the Ministry of Economic Development.
