Today 6Bone Operators & Users say bye to the experimental network which allowed, already some years ago, to turn IPv6 into the production space.

With the occasion of this virtual celebration, we have a couple of quotes from two key people on this subject:

  • Bob Fink (6Bone Project): “After more than ten years of planning, development and experience with IPv6, with efforts from all around the world, it is gratifying for me to see the 6Bone phase-out on the 6th of June 2006, having served it's purpose to stimulate IPv6 deployment and experience, leaving IPv6 a healthy ongoing component of the future of the Internet!”
  • Brian Carpenter (IBM, co-author of multiple IPv6 RFCs and IETF chair): “It's very encouraging to see IPv6 moving forward both technically and commercially, with its address assignments now routinely managed by the same registries that look after the rapidly diminishing IPv4 address pool. I look forward to the day the Internet reaches ten billion active nodes with public addresses, which will only be possible with IPv6.”


Users can learn how to enable IPv6, enjoy free IPv6 production connectivity and use some demonstration services at the IPv6 Day web site (in several languages).
