NTT America (NYSE: NTT) is marshaling its support for the emerging need to support the transition from IPv4 to IPv6 addressing by taking a gold sponsorship of the Rocky Mountain IPv6 Task Force's (RMv6TF) IPv6 Summit.
During the summit, attendees will be able to see how IPv6 is being adopted, case studies on how businesses are preparing for the IPv6 migration and how others are already gaining benefits from using IPv6.
Time is of the essence to educate businesses and service providers about the IPv4 to IPv6 addressing transition. Recent reports from both the American Registry of Internet Numbers (ARIN) and the Number Resource Organization (NRO) find that less than 10 percent of available IPv4 addresses remain unallocated, meaning that IPv4 exhaust is becoming an imminent problem.
NTT America itself has been attacking this problem by offering IPv6 transit service in native, tunneled or dual stack modes. This method allows other service providers and end-users to get access to new applications (disaster recovery and entertainment), while ensuring business continuity with the decline of available IPv4 addresses.
