Technological Issues toward "Internet is for Everyone"

Jun Murai, WIDE Project/KEIO University, Japan

The advanced Internet technologies are to achieve the new goals of digital communication such as IPv6, multicast, QoS, AAA and broadband. On the other hand, the responsibility of the Internet as the basic infrastructure of the new global society is growing to serve for social functions such as the new economy, education, culture, and medical applications. The development and deployment of these technologies has to be carefully processed with consideration of the social aspects. When the resulted digital communication environment must be beneficial for 'everyone', the structured efforts of research, development, promotion and deployment are extremely important. This talk covers such efforts in Japan and Asia, focusing on the IPv6 and other new technologies.
