World IPv6 Day – The Future Is Forever
June 6, 2012: the World IPv6 Day launched
World IPv6 Day, marked the start of a new era for IPv6. Organized by the Internet Society, the World IPv6 Launch on June 6, 2012 marked the largest industry commitment to and deployment of IPv6 in the history of the Internet. The event was intended to motivate organizations across the industry to enable Internet Protocol version 6 permanently on their products and services as IPv4 address space runs out. Specifically, the goals were:
- ISPs participating in the World IPv6 Launch will enabling IPv6 for enough users so that at least one percent of their residential wireline subscribers who visited participating websites would do so using IPv6.
- Participating home networking equipment manufacturers enabling IPv6 by default through their range of home router products.
- Web companies enabling IPv6 on their main websites permanently.
According to the World IPv6 website, more companies must take action to ensure a successful transition, including offering IPv6 connectivity to users, providing services over the IPv6 network, and updating software and firmware. As ISPs enable IPv6 and home gateway products support it, users at home with modern operating systems and devices will start using IPv6 automatically. IPv4 access will still be available as companies permanently enable IPv6 on their products and services.
