The Executive Director of LACNIC made an introduction to the panel
presenting an analysis of the use of the IPv4 address space in LAC and
what is the IPv4 space available for the region. The panel was composed
of representatives of major Internet operators in the region who gave

PANEL: WHAT KIND OF POLICIES DO WE NEED?
As a complement to the panel about the new scenario after the central
pool depletion, it was presented a panel integrated by operators from
Argentina, Brazil and Venezuela, focusing on the need for adjustments to
current policies, so as to ensure a harmonized transition towards the
deployment of IPv6. Some suggestions that came as contributions from the
panelists and the audience were: request deployment of IPv6 to those
providers applying for IPv4 remaining addresses, ensure availability of
IPv4 address space during the transition time, reservation policy to
prevent black market and policies between LACNIC and NIRs .
