Day 2 :
Middle Georgia State University, U.S.A
Keynote: The History of Innovative Leadership that will Pave the Path for the Next Generation of Aerospace Professionals
Time : 10:00-10:45
Sudeep Giri is the President of the Aeronautics Club at MGA, & the founder of 3D Printing 4 Humanity, a 3d printing organization focused on research and humanitarian needs. He has interned with two 3d printing companies, 3D Printer Technology and Zager 3d Printing, focused on manufacturing prototypes and products for other companies and organizations like NASA, Lockheed Martin, and Delta Air Lines.
What do you think is at the heart of any successful venture? In order to move forward in generating innovative ideas and solutions to problems, professionals must intertwine different principles of leadership amongst their team to create a goal and a reason for that goal. Sometimes it is difficult to be a leader and cultivate a plan of action that is executable amongst a team to achieve a defined goal. We, as engineers and other professions alike, must look to different sources of innovative leadership from the past to the present, so we may learn how to pave a path to success. We must stand on different summits to gain better perspectives, so that we may provide the tools and advice accordingly for the next generation to be able to climb higher
IPv6 FORUM, Luxembourg
Time : 10:45-11:20
Prof, Latif Ladid holds the following positions: Founder & President, IPv6 FORUM www.ip6forum.org, Emeritus Trustee, Internet Society www.isoc.org , Board Member IPv6 Ready & Enabled Logos Program and Board Member World Summit Award www.wsis-award.org. Latif is also a Member of 3GPP PCG (Board, since 1999) (www.3gpp.org), 3GPP2 PCG (www.3gpp2.org). Member of IEEE 5G Initiative Steering Committee (Future Networks Initiative) and IEEE IoT Steering Committee. Vice-Chair, ETSI IPv6 Industry Specification Group : https://portal.etsi.org/tb.
The IANA central IPv4 address space has been fully depleted back in February 2011 making the deploying of new large-scale IoT networks especially IoT networks not scalable and not what IoT really stands for. Hence the new IP protocol IPv6 has been designed to cater for this already back in the 90s and waiting for its killer apps to take off. 4G was the first one to adopt IPv6 in larger scale.
The IPv6 Deployment worldwide is becoming a reality now with some countries achieving more than 50% user penetration, with Belgium (58%) at the top ranking (http://labs.apnic.net/dists/
The US was by far the biggest adopter of IPv6 with some 100 Million users, but India has surpassed the US with over 250 M IPv6 users, followed by Germany, Japan and China with some 20 + M users. Worldwide IPv6 deployment has passed the 20 % Google usage bar doubling every 12 months (http://www.google.com/intl/
The deployment of Carrier-grade NAT is in full swing making networking and user experience more brittle. IPv6 will kick in big time for IoT and 5G to take them to the next level which are “Things-to-Things” beyond the current network of things under the non-IP IoT umbrella as Kevin Ashton coined the term IoT for RFID back in 1990 before even RFID suported the IP stack and still today don’t. This is another technology myth or fake news. IoT will suffer immensely under lack of built-in security which together cybersecurity issues are like always brushed over at this stage due mainly to lack of IPv6 security skills.
New topics are more on the lime light such as Cloud Computing, SDN, NFV, 5G with no attention to the issues dragged by IPv4. These fields are taking IP networking for granted designing them on IPv4/NAT building non-scalable and non-end to end solutions. The IPv6 Forum is driving new initiatives to garner support and create awareness on the impact of IPv6 on topics such as real IoT, open Cloud Computing, openstack based SDN-NFV and IPv6 only 5G.
