Public Sector Statements on IPv6

Governments are influential forces for Internet growth. Leading by example and through policies developed in cooperation with the private sector, governments can play an important part assisting in the deployment of IPv6.

In December 2010, the European Commission (EC) convened a meeting in Ghent, Belgium, IPv6: The Way Forward. The meeting goals were to:

  • Evaluate the deployment of IPv6 in Europe, as well as globally
  • Plan actions needed for wider IPv6 adoption, such as encouraging public administration, users and industrial stakeholders to take decisive steps to accelerate the implementation of IPv6

The one-day meeting concluded with updates from various European Union national governments on their IPv6 activities:
