America's Quest for IPv6 - Part I: A Business Perspective
IPv6, packed with promise of superior security, scale, and reliability, is already available to forward-thinking countries like China, as well as corporations wanting to sustain an advantage over their competitors. Despite this promise, only now has America begun taking steps towards a transition to IPv6, and still our nation struggles to see the overwhelming value this upgrade all but guarantees. This paper emphasizes that American organizations must adopt IPv6 today. It describes the features and functions that will keep them competitive on the global stage, offering a level of technological empowerment essential for any company's--or any country's--continued economic success.
