FP7: IPv6-based 5G, IoT, Cloud Computing and Blockchain

12 October 2022 // 11:00 – 12:30 // In-person

SESSION OUTLINE

The IPv6 Initiative at ETSI (3GPP) is attracting a very good number of players (100) including ISPs/Vendor/Academia from Europe, US and Asia to work on:

  • Identify gaps and recommendations of existing and required IPv6 standards both inside ETSI and in other SDOs;
  • Identify and describe IPv6 Network related use cases & specific scenarios, derived requirements and IPv6 networking challenges in the following areas:
    • IPv6-based 5G (and beyond 5G) IP transport and cloud & IP network convergence
    • IPv6-based enterprise networking and Industrial Internet
    • IPv6 cybersecurity and management,
    • IPv6-based Blockchain
  • Document an automated networking e2e reference architecture, using IPv6;
  • Describe an IPv6-based specific deployment best practices/guidelines and transition tools for
    • IPv4 to IPv6 and
    • dual-stack to IPv6 only;
  • Provide and demonstrate PoCs and test case descriptions to validate IPv6 standards-based approaches.

Ralph Wallace, Principal Enterprise Architect (IPv6 Lead), Verizon Public Sector
Bio: Ralph has been working with v6 since at least 2004 and his last position at IRS, led the deployment of v6 across the IRS and the rest of the Government. There is a 99% dual-stack deployment, with the upcoming capability to remove IPv4 from the network. He was instrumental in the 2020 v6 only memo as well as a significate part of the 2012 USG adoption of IPv6 plan.

 

INVITED SPEAKERS

Craig Wright, Founder & Chief Scientist, nChain, UK

Talk Title: IPv6-based Blockchain

Bio: Dr. Craig S Wright is an Australian/Antiguan computer scientist, businessman, and inventor, who challenges the world with visionary ideas. Dr. Wright is one of the earliest minds behind what we now know as blockchain technology and established nChain to unleash the technology and its intended purpose–now preserved in the form of the Bitcoin SV Node reference implementation and Bitcoin SV. As the Chief Scientist at nChain, Dr. Wright oversees the scientific functions of the company, including basic and applied research projects and the development of new processes, technologies, and products. He leads a team of world-class blockchain engineers and researchers who strive to deliver cutting-edge solutions to global clients.

Lawrence Hughes, Consultant, USA

Talk Title: IPv6 in the Enterprise

Bio: Lawrence Hughes is Senior Software Engineer – Cybersecurity at Abbott and was the co-founder/CEO of Sixscape Communications. Prior to co-founding Sixscape, he was the co-founder and CTO of Cipher Trust in 2000, and the inventor of the technology there that did a USD273 million exit in 2006. He is also the inventor of Identity Registration Protocol (IRP) and SixChat protocol which were submitted to the Internet Assigned Number Authority (IANA) and both awarded TCP port numbers on the Internet. Lawrence is the co-chair of IPv6 Forum Singapore and he is world-class in both cryptographic and IPv6 technologies. Lawrence graduated with a Bachelor Degree in Science (Pure Math) from Florida State University, USA.
