Would you like to be part of the new Internet?

The dawn of the new internet is fast approaching. Would you like to participate?

World IPv6 Day will take place on June 8, 2011


When the internet was first developed in 1977, APRA chose to use a 32-bit address format - this addressing system is called IPv4 and provides 4 billion addresses for internet websites.  These addresses are now almost completely exhausted so ISPs have been taking steps to upgrade to a new protocol called IPv6.  

IPv6 will provide 340,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 addresses (ie 340 undecillion) - which should be enough for the short term!

To help assist in this transition, the Internet Society has organised World IPv6 Day on June 8 2011.  Major organisations such as Google, Facebook, Discover Me Design and Yahoo will take part in a 24 hour 'test flight' in a bid to prepare their services for IPv6 and help communicate the transition.
