Title: IPv6 over 5G

Abstract:

5G is the new fifth generation cellular mobile communications technology. Generally, most earlier generations have technically been defined by their data transmission speeds. With 5G, this is extended to many other aspects as well.
5G especially brings three new aspects to the table:
1. greater speed (to move more data).
2. lower latency (to be more responsive).
3. and the ability to connect a lot more devices simultaneously (for IOT sensors and smart devices).

IPv6 support has been part of the 3GPP standards since the first release of the specifications. It extends to all radio access and packet-based system variants of the 3GPP architecture family, including 5G. With the ever growing business and commercial incentives, wider adoption of IPv6, especially over technologies like LTE and 5G is taking place.
This talk will cover the technical aspects of how IPv6 is crafted to work hand in hand with 5G. The merging of these 2 technologies is like a marriage made in heaven. This includes the benefits of having an 5G IPv6 only network and how to potentially implement the “My IP, My ID”, ie your very own IPv6 address for life.

Title: IPv6-based IoT, 5G/6G, Cloud Computing and Blockchain

IPv6 penetration worldwide has crossed 50% worldwide in 2022 with China reaching 700 M IPv6 users and India crossed 350 M. Malaysia, Japan, Vietnam and Sri Lanka are ahead of many European countries. IPv6 in Asia will make Asia the biggest IPv6 deployment continent. This enables the Digital transformation and the modernisation of the Internet infrastructure ready to deploy modern Two-way IoT applications, Two way 5G/6G services, scalable Cloud Computing and end to end Blockchain, enabling thereby true use of the New Internet vision sparking multiple Internet innovations empowering the Internet users more than ever before becoming producers instead of just simple users. India will be probably be the biggest Blockchain nation in the world using the BSV platform. Indonesia is its way to update its networks.

This event is an excellent platform to disseminate the best practices and guidelines how to drive deployment of IPv6 in this great nation
