THE MOST RECENT INFORMATION ON THE BPF IPv6 CAN BE FOUND ON THE NEW IGF WEBSITE:
THIS PAGE IS NO LONGER UPDATED
Devices connect to the Internet via numerical Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. The growth and expansion of the Internet has virtually exhausted the pool of undistributed IP addresses we use today on the Internet, which is Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4). The new version of IP addresses, Internet Protocol version 6 or IPv6 is available. which addresses this exhaustion. The IPv6 space is huge and the number of available addresses largely covers current and future demand.
Scope and Goal
In 2015, the BPF IPv6 discussed "Why adopt IPv6?" and collected best practice examples of initiatives that help to create enabling environments for IPv6 adoption, for example IPv6 Task Forces and capacity building projects.
This year's BPF IPv6 will focus on the economic incentives and commercial drivers behind the decision to adopt IPv6. When a company or an organisation decides to deploy IPv6 on it's network, other non-technical reasons play a role in the decisionmaking process.
The BPF IPv6 wants to reach out to companies and organisations that commercially deployed IPv6 and are willing to share their experiences.
Participate and contribute
The BPF IPv6 is an open bottom-up process to collect best practices and present them as a useful and tangible output of the 2016 IGF.
If you want to contribute, assist in reaching out to the commercial and business community, take part in the brainstorming and help to shape the 2016 BPF outcome document, you should join the "bp_ipv6" mailing list and participate in the regular virtual meetings.
Work process: During an initial period, the BPF is working on an online platform on a series of documents. Feel free to have look and contribute directly: Brainstorming and work document BPF IPv6: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1C7z8MRVBOmBsuWxpl8YivXZWFvksKCq0_ul7TlFJzIU/edit?pref=2&pli=1#
