The Federal Government and IPv6 World Day

As you may know, June 8th is going to be an important day for the Internet!

It is World IPv6 Day :

This day for 24 hours, most of the majors content providers will enable IPv6 on their front door. is going to be one of these web sites that will be reachable on IPv6 Internet, among 100’s of others globally, including  Google, Facebook, Yahoo, Bing, Akamai and many more. You can see the complete list of participants here.

Notably, many of the Federal Government Agencies are also participating such as:

National Library of Medicine

United States Federal Aviation Administration

National Telecommunications and Information Administration

United States Office of Personnel Management

National Technical Information Service

United States Census Bureau


US Department of Veterans Affairs

Cisco has been very much leading the industry through this transition. The TAC (technical Assistance Center) and the service organization will support both the planning phase of World IPv6 Day, as well as providing customer support.

Government has been at the forefront of  IPv6, and should continue to take the lead on this effort.  Please read our whitepaper on the subject (you have to register) and check out our Federal IPv6 Site.

And I’ll make this offer – any Government Agency that would like to participate in World IPv6 Day but needs a little help through the transition, please write me directly and we’ll get you lots of help.
