World IPv6 Launch was a global event in which organisations around the world enabled their content or services over IPv6. As all of the RIPE NCC's services and content had already been available over IPv6 for some time, we participated - as we did for the 2011 event - by extensively measuring World IPv6 Launch and contributing to local events.
For all measurements we conducted for World IPv6 Day, please refer to RIPE NCC World IPv6 Launch Measurements.
We reported our findings and presented analyses on the IPv6 Launch page on RIPE Labs.
RIPEstat developed a new DNS widget for World IPv6 Launch. The widget can be included in any website where you'd like viewers to be able to perform IPv6 (and IPv4) DNS lookups or view your site's DNS details.
World IPv6 Launch was celebrated at Science Park, Amsterdam. Tutorials, workshops and a panel session discussing the need for IPv6 took place. Keynote speakers gave presentations and global IPv6 progress was monitored and shown during the day. The event was co-organised by several Dutch research and ICT organisations (University of Amsterdam, University of Applied Sciences, Amsterdam, Surfnet, NLnet Labs, RIPE NCC, AMS-IX, Internet Society Netherlands, the Dutch IPv6 Task Force and others).
