World IPv6 Launch: RIPE NCC Activities

You’re viewing an archived page. It is no longer being updated.
World IPv6 Launch takes place today, 6 June 2012, marking a key milestone in the development of the Internet. Major Internet service providers (ISPs), manufacturers and content providers around the world are coming together to permanently enable IPv6 for their products and services.

RIPE NCC is heavily involved in both the local and global events surrounding the Launch.

We will monitor and analyse many of the participating websites from a number of vantage points before, during and after the Launch:

Local Event
We've joined forces with several Dutch organisations to organise the World IPv6 Launch NL event at Science Park Amsterdam. The local technical community and future Internet leaders are attending the RIPE NCC's IPv6 tutorial, various IPv6-related presentations, hands-on
workshops and plenary sessions. We'll be tracking the global Launch with live statistics throughout the day and Daniel Karrenberg, Chief Scientist, will give the keynote speech:
