IPv6 Only

Brian Carpenter - Professor, University of Auckland


Over the last year there have been several experiments and a lot of discussion about hosts and networks that are strictly IPv6 only. The questions are: how will they fare in the real Internet, what interworking technology is needed, and will it scale? The talk will cover interworking technology, and some of the experience that has been reported, including performance measurements made in the lab in Auckland.
