Less Than One Week Until We Talk IPv6, DNSSEC, and Best Practices at ION Tokyo!

ION TokyoIn less than a week we’ll be at ION Tokyo! This time, we’re co-located in the same venue with the Japan IPv6 Summit on 17 November and Internet Week Japan from 18-21 November 2014. The ION Conference will be on Monday, 17 November, from 9:30AM to 12:30PM.


We’re particularly excited that Dr. Shin Miyakawa from NTT Communications has agreed to be our keynote speaker. Dr. Miyakawa is extremely well respected throughout Japan and the entire Asia Pacific region and we are thrilled he can join us. Here is his keynote title and abstract:

Can We Go Back to the Original? A Return to the End-to-End Principle

The Internet has been evolving. One of the major reasons IPv6 should be deployed now is to restore the end-to-end principle of the Internet. However, as the Internet has changed dramatically in the last decade, returning to its original form is very difficult. In this presentation, I will discuss what is happening today and how we can best sustain and improve the Internet.


The whole agenda and all our great speakers for ION Tokyo will make this a great event. Here’s a quick look at the morning:
