At the close of the IPv6 TF-SC project in May 2004, IPv6 (Internet Protocol version 6) has become an established reality around the world. Governments are stating their support for the new protocol, and more and more organisations are adopting it. So where next for IPv6?

IPv6 overcomes the address limitations of the current Internet, and in doing so lays the foundations for better integration of Internet services into the very fabric of business and society. Intelligent homes, ‘talking fridges’, vehicles able to communicate with each other – IPv6 will enable every single electronic device, static or mobile, to interact with other devices within an intelligent ‘peernet’.

“If we compare IPv6 deployment now to the situation 12 or 24 months ago, clearly there has been a growing rate of deployment,” says Jordi Palet of Consulintel, part of the IST-funded IPv6 TF-SC (Task Force Steering Committee) project consortium. “Two years ago, many people thought that IPv6 might not happen. Now it is clear that it has been the right way to go.”
