Major Changes to Take Place to the Internet in 2012

Filed under
Web

The Internet is set to witness a phenomenal change in 2012 with 5 major changes under way, having the potential to modify Internet history like never before. A technical upgrade is going to happen from Internet Protocol version 4 to version 6 and key Internet infrastructure and operations contracts controlled by the U.S federal government are going to be re-bid.

These and other milestones could well change the nature of Internet operations as well as who operates them:

New operator for root servers

The organization that oversees the operation of the Internet root servers, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) has a contract that expires in March 2012. The non-profit has done this job since its foundation in 1998; however a new US based organization could soon be responsible for this important technical function.
