The Regional Internet Registries (RIRs), the IPv6 Task Forces and the IPv6 Forum are working in cooperation to support global IPv6 deployment.

The four Regional Internet Registries (RIRs), APNIC, ARIN, LACNIC and the RIPE NCC, are responsible for the management of global Internet numbering resources, including IPv4 and IPv6 address space, throughout the world. The RIRs confirm their commitment and continued support towards the deployment of IPv6 in co-operation with the IPv6 Task Forces and with the support of the IPv6 Forum.

The IPv6 Task Forces are focused on rapid IPv6 deployment. They see the adoption of IPv6 by industry, governments, schools and universities is particularly important. The extra address space offered by IPv6 will facilitate the deployment of widespread “always-on” Internet services including broadband access for all.

Complete press release available at the EU IPv6 TF site, APNIC, ARIN, LACNIC, RIPE NCC, MarketWire, Excite, ACS, Optionetics, NewsStream, Yahoo Canada, Yahoo Biz, MSNBC News, iWon and Lycos.
