World IPv6 Day... The Future is Forever

 

On 8 June, 2011, GoogleFacebookYahoo!Akamai and Limelight Networks will be amongst some of the major organisations that will offer their content over IPv6 for a 24-hour “test flight”. The goal of the Test Flight Day is to motivate organizations across the industry – Internet service providers, hardware makers, operating system vendors and web companies – to prepare their services for IPv6 to ensure a successful transition as IPv4 addresses run out.

On Oct 26, 2010, two of the top-5 websites in Norway, A-pressen Digitale Medier and VG Multimedia, both made their websites available over IPv6 for 24 hours. Thanks to the positive results that day, the change was made permanent shortly after.

The Internet Society thanks Limelight Networks for their generous support of distributed content delivery for World IPv6 Day.
