Workshop IPv6@Gov – 23 & 24 January 2013 – European Commission, Brussels
Posted by: Jordi on Wednesday, December 12, 2012 - 11:19 AM
The IPv6 Observatory, the GEN6 project and the European Commission are jointly organizing an IPv6@Gov Workshop dedicated to the policy dialogue on the IPv6 deployment in European Union Member States.

IPv6 is a cornerstone of the Future Internet. To ensure both business continuity of the European industry and society to get benefits from IPv6 added technologies, the European Commission (EC) requested that by 2010, 25% of the users should be able to connect to IPv6. This ambitious target has not been achieved and while IPv4 pool of addresses dried out in February 2011, the estimated and effective level of IPv6 deployment is still below 5%. Pointing out the emergency of the issue, the European Commission is continuing its support to IPv6 deployment through its digital agenda and calling the member states to foster IPv6 adoption.

Posted by: Jordi on Sunday, December 04, 2011 - 12:51 AM
The Internet is doomed until European businesses and organisations begin to move towards IPv6, according to Neelie Kroes, VP of the European Commission responsible for the Digital Agenda.

"We are starting to see very close ahead of us the consequences if we don't make the switch to IPv6," she warned, presumably to a very receptive audience.

Address allocation kicks off IPv4 endgame
Posted by: Jordi on Tuesday, February 01, 2011 - 08:33 AM
The Internet Assigned Numbers Authority has assigned two large blocks of IPv4 addresses to the Asia-Pacific Network Information Centre, activating a rule under which the agency will give out the last of its IPv4 addresses.

The rule states that when only five large blocks of IP addresses remain, one will be handed out to each of the world's five regional Internet registries. With the latest allocation to APNIC, the number of remaining IP address blocks is down to five.

Remaining IPv4 Address Space Drops Below 5%
Posted by: Jordi on Monday, October 18, 2010 - 10:14 AM
The Number Resource Organization (NRO) announced today that less than five percent of the world's IPv4 addresses remain unallocated. APNIC, the Regional Internet Registry for the Asia Pacific region, has been assigned two blocks of IPv4 addresses by the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA).

This latest allocation means that the IPv4 free pool dipped below 10% in January, just nine months ago. Since then, over 200 million IPv4 addresses have been allocated from IANA to the Regional Internet Registries (RIRs).

ENISA -1st EU Agency to deliver its web content over IPv6
Posted by: Jordi on Friday, October 16, 2009 - 11:11 PM
The EU Agency ENISA [i.e. the European Network and Information Security Agency] now delivers its web site content over the new Internet protocol IPv6. With this action, ENISA is the first EU Agency to implement the European Commission IPv6 Action Plan.

All computer and electronic devices that connect to the web and other online services uses Internet Protocol Addresses. The current Internet Protocol, IPv4, provides a limited number of such addresses. According to estimates will be exhausted by 2011. The new Internet Protocol, IPv6, allows every citizen and organization to have as many Internet Addresses as they need to connect every conceivable device to the Internet: mobile phones, car navigation systems, home appliances, industrial equipment, etc.
