Over years with the massive deployment of Internet-related resources worldwide and the integration of IP-enabled consumer devices connected directly to the network, the issue of the depletion of IPv4 (Internet Protocol, version 4) addresses is becoming pertinent. In addition to other features, IPv6 (Internet Protocol, version 6) with its 128 bit address space is particularly aimed at addressing the shortage of public IPv4 addresses. However, the deployment of IPv6 has happened at much slower rate than many had expected (Read more...).
Resolution 64 'IP protocol address allocation and facilitating the transition to and deployment of IPv6' to promote awareness of the availability of IPv4 addresses and the deployment of IPv6 was adopted by ITU Member States and Sector Members during the World Telecommunication Standardization Assembly (WTSA-08, Johannesburg 2008), then revised at WTSA-12 (Dubai, 2012) and at WTSA-16 (Hammamet, 2016).
The purpose of this website is to provide information about global IPv6 activities, thus facilitating awareness-raising of IPv6 deployment, as well as providing information related to training events being undertaken by relevant entities in the Internet community. ITU Members are invited to submit contributions on Resolution 64 implementation to ITU-T Study Group 2 and/or Study Group 3, as stipulated in WTSA Resolution 64.
In particular, implementation plans, training activities, case studies, etc. as appropriate are invited to enhance this website. Please send your content for this website by email to: ipv6info[at]itu.int.
