[AfriNIC-rpd] What is our take on the central pool IPv4 exhaustion?

Fri Aug 17 14:58:29 UTC 2007

Hi Alain,

I'm not sure to get your point. I'm not talking about any specific type of
apps., there are many possibilities of things that aren't so easy to develop
with IPv4 because you need to take care of NAT, which is not the case with
IPv6. My point is that innovation in app development can happen with IPv6
w/o resources, just smart people and programming skills. Then this can be
exported, and that means business.

>> Developing regions have even more reasons to move to IPv6 faster, and to
>> allow the innovation in the regions to happen *before* developed regions,
>> increasing the competition opportunities.
>> Developing applications with IPv6 is far more easier than with IPv4 and
>> this provides a path for African people to do business while the rest of

>> advanced applications that traverse NATs.
