Laurie, several key features inside v6 stack could start new era on ads or in media communication in general. Let us mention multicast and peering, not fully available on v4 and "killer" in terms of possibility to reach everyone abroad, despite physical network connection (v4 is sensitive to packet frame's lenght, strictly related to physical medium). Junaid Islam, one of the most important entrepreneurs in SiliconValley, explained very well at
Google, Yahoo, and Facebook will join Akamai, Limelight Networks and the Internet Society to test IPv6 on June 8. How silly of me not to take this question to the EBNOnline community. What influence will IPv6 have on online advertising? I received a bunch of typical answers from the companies participating, but I know there is more. Can anyone provide insight other than IPv6 will continue to allow Internet connected devices to connect online, so advertisers and ad networks can serve up ads.
Prabhakar, it is realistic and pragmatic approach. We can report for example, without any installation or upgrade inside our network or application servers, thanks to virtual free tunnel from a ISP provider we can access to v4 and v6 Internet sections. We have resolved the limitations to IP range assigned and electronic sensors "pump" directly info on-line. It's fantastic !
In my opinion if a company comes out with a product that can camaflauge an existing IPV4 devices or networks as IPV6 compatible devices then the migration to IPv6 can happen at a much faster pace. The newly developed devices can be made directly compatible to IPV6. It is like reading Word97 documents in say Word2007.
It may not be an efficient approach but it can save all those old investments from becoimg obsolete all of a sudden.
Very interesting article, the possibility to integrate IPstack directly inside "real-world" microchip could improve a lot our business within electronic industry. Other way in progress thanks to strong mobile handsets' evolution is to interwork with them directly via v6. Services launched past summer from T-Mob are very useful.
Right, in fact major challenge is to guarantee full interworking v4/v6 and in parallel introduce step-by-step new services as mentioned. A few mobile providers in USA for example are experiencing that way.
I think, much like any major technological change, there is hesitation because it is something new to learn. More importantly, you must understand it in order to get it operational. Could you imagine if administrators everywhere were forced to migrate their networks to v6 right away. They would panic becasue today it works fine, tomorrow no one can access any resources. With time and more experience, the change will take place, but it will be more manageable.

Peter Drucker famously said "Trying to predict the future is like trying to drive down a country road at night with no lights while looking out the back window." Yet in the razor's-edge world of electronics—with a lean supply chain and just-in-time demands—the need to know the future is vital.
While no one really can accurately predict the future, we can take guidance from another Drucker saying which is the best way to predict the future is to create it.
You've heard the saying "the No. 1 supply chain risk is your people." That hasn't always been the case. But today's complex global supply chain requires a new type of multitalented employee. It's one who understands, finance, marketing, economics, is savvy with technology, graceful with relationships and can think analytically.
Where are these people? Are universities properly preparing the next generation supply chain professionals? How do train your existing workforce for these new, demanding positions?
Brian Fuller, editor-in-chief of EBN, will lead a 60-minute Avnet Velocity panel discussion that will ask and answer these and other questions swirling around today's supply-chain talent challenges.
