Ipv6 helps network architects revisit fundamental IP-related issues such as IP address shortage, security, quality of service, mobility, multicasting, and network management. In 1977, Dr. Vint Cerf (Senior Vice President of Internet Architecture and Engineering at MCI WorldCom, and an Internet pioneer credited as being the father of the Internet) confidently asserted that “32 bits should be enough address space for Internet”. Today, as honorary chairman of the IPv6 Forum, Dr. Cerf calls for the immediate adoption of IPv6, in order to “take the Internet where no other network has gone before”. The author describes how Ericsson Telebit, through its sound pioneering strategy regarding IPv6 technology and marketing, has facilitated the creation of the IPv6 Forum, thereby addressing the critical limitations of the current Internet security, quality of service and address space, and building robust foundations for the new-generation Internet
