World IPv6 Launch 2012

Introduction to World IPv6 Launch

The World IPv6 Launch took place on 6 June 2012 and built on the success of the World IPv6 Day that took place on 8 June 2011.

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.

RIPE NCC Measurements for World IPv6 Day

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.

The RIPEstat World IPv6 Launch Widget

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.

Testing IPv6 Reachability Using RIPE Atlas

If you are a RIPE NCC member, you can test the reachability of your IPv6 (web)site from all IPv6-capable RIPE Atlas probes.

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).
