The first German IPv6 congress took place on May 28th & 29th in Frankfurt and was hosted by heise Netze, iX, and DE-CIX. Over 200 attendees, great presentations and tutorials made this congress a great success. The program included firsthand reports relevant to practical issues instead of marketing blurbs or general declarations of intent.

The keynote was given by Daniel Karrenberg who is the Chief Scientist at the RIPE NCC and ISOC Chairman. He explained that the most important reason to implement IPv6 now is not to increase security and to add features but it is all about solving the problem of the lack of remaining IPv4 address space.
