IEEE 8th World Forum on Internet of Things
26 October–11 November 2022 // Yokohama, Japan

IPv6-based 5G, IoT, Cloud Computing, Blockchain

Date: October 31, 2022 – Time 1:00 PM- 3:00 PM Japan time.


The IPv6 deployment has been progressing in all global digital infrastructures, i.e., not only in legacy wired ISP’s, but also in 5G cellular networks, IoT and cloud computing networks.


These sessions will address: Identify gaps and recommendations of existing and required IPv6 standards in SDOs; Identify and describe IPv6 Network related use cases & specific scenarios, derived requirements and IPv6 networking challenges in the following areas:
  • IPv6 based 5G (and beyond 5G) IP transport and cloud & IP network convergence
  • IPv6 based enterprise networking and Industrial Internet
  • IPv6-based Bockchain
  • IPv6 cybersecurity and management
  • Automated networking e2e reference architecture, using IPv6; Describe an IPv6 based specific deployment best practices / guidelines and transition tools for: (1) IPv4 to IPv6, (2) dual stack to IPv6 only
The Forum will conclude with a panel discussion during which IoT experts and security experts will brainstorm how to implement security in the design of a DX plan.
