At TechEd 2010, Microsoft Australia are stepping up Internet conncectivity a notch or two by offering native IPv6 to all conference delegates. A first for a Microsoft TechEd and possibily for a Microsoft event, every wireless and wired user with an IPv6-supported OS like Windows 7 at TechEd Australia will have a public and globally routable IPv6 address.

"In contrast to traditional IPv4 network, this means the router will no longer have to allocate internal IPs that can only be reached either through the packet maze Network Address Translation (NAT)."

Although benefits of IPv6 won't be as obvious until it has greater adoption, at least TechEd attendees will be able to brag about their newly assigned 128-bit addresses on Facebook accessed through their special IPv6 URL.
