IPv6 Summit 2003

P: n/a

I would like to invite you and your associates to attend the US IPv6
(Internet Protocol version 6) Summit, December 8-11, 2003 in Crystal City,
VA, near the Pentagon. This major opportunity to participate in
transitioning to the new Internet is in response to both DoD and Industry
requests for a concentrated, affordable conference in the Washington, D.C.
area.

This exciting and informative conference on the Next Generation Internet
will attract a remarkable line-up of speakers, including major executives
from the Department of Defense and Industry, as well as prominent global
scientists and analysts. This gathering should offer your organization great
opportunities for forming new strategic relationships. Revenues from new
products and services arising from the Next Generation Internet have been
estimated at a trillion dollars over the next decade.

You have undoubtedly heard of the booming interest in the new Internet,
because of its dramatic improvements in end-to-end security, peer-to-peer
communication, support of new generations of Internet-enabled consumer
electronics and defense systems, and wireless mobility capabilities, as well
as the recent announcement by the U.S. Department of Defense (that it was
switching all Internet operations over to this new standard beginning in
October 2003) and support by major vendors such as Microsoft and Sony. The
Department of Commerce recently created a Task Force to generate an IPv6
roadmap. The press has also reported on the enthusiastic support for IPv6 by
European and Asian governments, which have already started replacing the
present Internet Protocol (in use since 1973). Sponsors for the Summit
include IBM, Cisco, Sun Microsystems, Verio/NTT, HP, Nortel, Spirent,
Automation Research, Elmic, Cal-(IT)2, IP Infusion, Alcatel, INS, Extreme
Networks, Foundry Networks, UNH-IOL, Internet2, Nokia, KMI, Ixia, IPv6
Promotional Council, and the Northern Virginia Technology Council. Everyone
who wants to benefit from early adoption of the new generation Internet will
be at this conference in order to assess and to influence the 21st Century
Internet. You should be there, too.

We would sincerely appreciate it if you could put these dates on your
calendar. You can read a more complete description of the Summit and
register at http://www.usipv6.com. In addition to the presentations on
December 9-11, there is also an optional comprehensive IPv6 tutorial on the
8th - please register NOW, because space is limited (and early registration
saves you up to 50%). If you live outside the D.C. area, you'll want to
reserve a room at the Doubletree Hotel as soon as possible, to be assured of
conference rates.

I will be happy to discuss our conference and to answer any of your
questions at (310) 458-3233 -- or you can send an email to our dedicated
information desk at in**@usipv6.com. We hope you can attend and join us. We
thank you in advance for your support -- and for forwarding this invitation
to other individuals and companies who might want to attend the U.S. IPv6
Summit - see you in December!

Sincerely,

Alex Lightman
Chairman,
U.S. IPv6 Summit 2003
