• ISOC England event for World IPv6 Launch on 6 June 2012

    by  • June 5, 2012 • Events, News, Project

    Major Internet service providers (ISPs), home networking equipment manufacturers, and web companies around the world are coming together to permanently enable IPv6 for their products and services by 6 June 2012.

    Organized by the Internet Society, and building on the successful one-day World IPv6 Day event held on 8 June 2011, World IPv6 Launch represents a major milestone in the global deployment of IPv6. As the successor to the current Internet Protocol, IPv4, IPv6 is critical to the Internet’s continued growth as a platform for innovation and economic development.

    So, what’s IPv6? Why do we need it? Why is it taking so long for it to be widely used?
    You can find the Internet Society’s IPv6 Frequently Asked Questions document on:

    Many ISOC Chapters around the world are staging IPv6 events:

    At ISOC England, we have started an IPv6 project over a year ago.
    The IPv6 Matrix Project: http://www.ipv6matrix.org/

    This project, sponsored in part by the Internet Society
    and run by the English Chapter of ISOC, aims to
    test the most popular Internet domains in the world for IPv6 connectivity.
    You are no doubt aware that the Internet is running out of IPv4
    addresses and that a transition towards IPv6 is the preferred option to
    maintain its viability and global scaling. Our aim is to track the
    spread of IPv6 worldwide, in order to provide more reliable statistics
    on IPv6 implementation and enable decision takers to migrate to the new
    addressing scheme in time before IPv4 addressing runs out.

    In order to explain the project and provide an update on its progress, ISOC England is running a Webinar on 6 June 2012. You are all invited to join remotely. It’s easy: just click on the link below. Webex will run and you’ll be able to follow. It will be a Powerpoint presentation of the latest results, pre-IPv6 launch day.

    The Webinar will last 1 hour with a presentation taking about 30 minutes and plenty of time for questions.

    Looking forward to see you then.
