Houston, Texas – (The Hosting News) – January 31, 2008 – Privately held dedicated web hosting company, The Planet’s Vice President of Network Operations, Stan O. Barber, recently delivered an address at the 30th annual Pacific Telecommunications Council (PTC) Telecom with Vision tradeshow.
Mr. Barber commented, ”As customers demand additional functionality, we will begin to see broader adoption of IPv6. There are no significantly large companies driving adoption, so we face a chicken-and-egg scenario that has plagued widespread deployment. While anyone can connect to IPv6 today using a tunnel broker, it is difficult to use such connections when driving traffic of any significant bandwidth. Having providers deliver IPv6 natively removes this bandwidth barrier and makes it possible for web sites, as an example, to deliver the same content with the same experience over IPv6 and IPv4.”
Barber’s remarks included a discussion about the emerging adoption of IPv6, and the barriers to entry over the IPv4 standard. The conference was held at the Hilton Hawaiian Village Beach Resort and Spa in Honolulu. The conference agenda covered issues related to emerging changes and strategic business drivers that affect today’s telecommunications industry.
The PTC opened its 30th anniversary conference with the largest attendance in five years, and a 20% increase from last year, as thousands of professionals converged in the biggest East-West conference in the industry. The conference overall spent much time discussing current regulatory issues as well. Bottom line is that reregulation is coming; globally, the days of continuous deregulation are over. Privacy, security, and digital dividend, to developing markets and population are the key issues in today’s regulatory environment.
