More than ten years ago, the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF)
developed the IPv6 protocol to dramatically expand the number of
Internet Protocol addresses available with the IPv4 protocol and
provide new features in the key standard that encodes the packets of
data that carry everything transmitted over the Internet. Despite the
fact that we are running out of IPv4 addresses, which is complicating
operations of the Internet, many computer companies, Web companies,
and Internet Service Providers have not embraced the IPv6. What's
holding them back? Why are only about 10 percent of networks using
IPv6 today? What does IPv6 mean for the average Internet user? The
new protocol is essential for development of the Internet of Things,
ad hoc networks, and other exciting new uses of the Internet. What are
the early adopters doing with the new capabilities offered by IPv6?
Help us celebrate IPv6 Launch Day on June 6 and learn about efforts to
realize the full benefits of the next version of the Internet
