Key Ubiquitous Connectivity Challenges?
Addressing Mobility and roaming Security

The Promise of IPv6
Enough addresses
64+64 format: 1.8E+19 networks, units assuming IPv4 efficiency: 1E+16 networks, 1 million networks per human 20 networks per m2 of Earth (2 per sqft ) Removes need to stretch addresses with NATs

True mobility
No reliance on Foreign Agents

Better network layer security
IPSec delivers end-to-end security Link/Site Local addresses allow partitioning Anonymous addresses provide privacy

The Promise of IPv6
If IPv6 is so great, how come it is not there yet?
Need upfront investment, stacks, etc. Similar to Y2K, 32 bit vs. “clean address type”

Need to ramp-up investment No “push-button” transition


What is Microsoft doing to Accelerate Migration to IPv6?
Building a complete IPv6 stack in Windows
Technology Preview stack in Win2000 Developer stack in Windows XP Deployable stack in .NET Server & update for Windows XP Windows CE planned

Supporting IPv6 with key applications and protocols
File sharing, Web (IIS, IE), Games (DPlay), Peer to Peer platform, UPnP, Bluetooth

Building v4->v6 transition strategies

Wireless WAN, LAN, and PAN are complimentary technologies for exciting connected scenarios of the future Pervasive networking requires rich integration of technologies IPv6 is a key requirement
