The Global IPv6 Summit took place on the 18th and 19th June 2008 in Seoul, Korea. Erion’s David Holder attended and presented a paper entitled IPv6 Enabling Unix-Linux and Windows Integration.

The conference took place at the same time (and venue) as the meeting of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). The OECD released a declaration encouraging the deployment of IPv6 to ensure the continued growth of the Internet as IPv4 addresses run out.

There were two major points made by many of the speakers at the conference:

  1. IPv4 addresses are running out and the registry pools will be used up by 2011 and maybe as early as 2009.
  2. IPv6 is being widely deployed. Many examples of large-scale IPv6 deployment were given.
