Net Politics and IPv6
Our partner organization, the Swiss IPv6 council, is hosting an event on Net Politics and IPv6, taking place on 13 May 2013, 18:00 – 21:00 h at 320 West in Zurich.
Balthasar Glättli (member of ISOC-CH), National Councilor of the Green Party and net politician, will be talking about the actual status of Swiss net politics and explains what a free Internet means for our society. It was in December 2012 when he submitted his “Motion für Netzneutralität” to the Bundesrat for a legal anchorage of net neutrality. We are very eager to learn more about how the political debate around this topic looks like.
In the second part, Alain Fiocco, Senior Director, Head of Cisco IPv6 High Impact Program, describes the influence of IPv6 to net neutrality, as well as the current state of international public policies. His thesis: To ensure a secure and free Internet, we need public policies. And the implementation of certain policies can be much more easily implemented with IPv6.
