BASKING RIDGE, N.J. -- With almost two decades of experience building one of the most expansive Internet backbones in the world, Verizon Business is using its engineering expertise to deploy the Internet's next-generation protocol, known as IPv6, on the company's public IP network worldwide.

The deployment, expected to be completed during the next 18 months, will permit companies to fully integrate to IPv6, which offers many more Internet addresses than the current IPv4 standard. More IP addresses will be needed as use of the Internet grows, including the expected connections of additional "smart" devices as well as radio transponders for shipping.

The federal government has already ordered its agencies to become IPv6- capable by June of 2008.

Verizon Business, which began its first phase of deploying IPv6 -- known as Internet Protocol Version 6 -- on the public IP network in 2004, will complete the North America region in 2008 and move into the Asia-Pacific and European regions from late 2008 to 2009. The company will operate both IPv6 and IPv4, in what is known as a "dual stack" arrangement, on its multi protocol label switching (MPLS) network core. The company also has deployed IPv6 throughout its network access points (peering facilities) where Internet service providers exchange traffic.

"Verizon Business is among the first global providers to move to an IPv6- enabled public IP infrastructure," said Mike Marcellin, vice president of product marketing for Verizon Business. "While IPv6 has been a hot topic among service providers, government agencies and enterprise business customers, many entities are just beginning to research the information needed for their migration strategy. With our knowledge and expertise, Verizon Business is ready to help its customers plan and administer the complex move from IPv4 to IPv6."

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
