In last year, we have reported the World IPv6 Day which is June 8 2011. At that time, “There have been more than 400 organizations participate Internet Society and support IPv6.”
Today, “Major Internet service providers (ISPs), home networking equipment manufacturers, and web companies around the world are coming together to permanently enable IPv6 for their products and services by 6 June 2012.”
The information is from World Ipv6 Launch Official site.
We posted the following pictures to supports the IPv6 Launch.
WORLD IPV6 LAUNCH UNITES INDUSTRY LEADERS TO REDEFINE THE GLOBAL INTERNET
Google team today published a blog which they said they will going to enable IPv6 after 24 hours that is World IPv6 Day, June 8 2011.
There have been more than 400 organizations participate Internet Society and support IPv6.
“We believe this is an important milestone, as IPv6 is the only long-term solution to IPv4 address exhaustion, and its deployment is crucial to the continued growth of the open Internet.
About 24 hours from now, at midnight UTC on June 8 (Tuesday afternoon in the U.S., Wednesday morning in Asia), all the participants will enable IPv6 on their main websites for 24 hours. For Google, this will mean virtually all our services, including Search, Gmail, YouTube and many more, will be available over IPv6.”
In that day, maybe people may find Google, Facebook, Yahoo, Bing and other participating websites slow or unresponsive. This is often due to misconfigured or misbehaving home networking equipment, such as home routers, that can make a computer think it has IPv6 connectivity when in fact it’s not working.
