    The chapter unveiled the new IPv6 Matrix information resource for researchers to UK network operators at UKNOF27 in Manchester on 21st January.

    Dr. Tim Chown of University of Southampton unveiled the new website to the UK network operators at the meeting. The site has been repurposed by Masters students at Southampton. Network researchers can now enjoy over four years of IPv6 usage data and generate dynamic interactive visualisations at the click of a mouse. The data is published on open data principles.

    IPv6 Matrix was originally conceived by Dr. Olivier Crepin-Leblond in 2010 who continues to guide its progress. The chapter thanks the Internet Society Grants program for its contribution to take the project to its next incarnation as well as Nile University and 2020Media for their support over the last four years.
