A Step Towards IPv6

February 5, 2008 - 1 Comment

EUROPE – A step forward has been taken in the transition to the larger internet address space, IPv6, this week with news that computers can now find each other without having to use the old IPv4 addressing system at all.This has been exercising policy makers for some time as you can see from the policy section of the very helpful IPv6 Task Force website, though it’s interesting to note that much of this work is now a few years old. The European Commission has been very active in this area and supports a European IPv6 Task Force. It will be interesting to see how governmental activity ramps up again on this issue over the next couple of years as we get closer to full implementation.
