On World IPv6 Day (June 8th 2011), top content providers such as Google, Yahoo, Facebook and more than 1000 participating websites joined together for a successful global-scale trial of the new Internet Protocol, IPv6. This is the first ever largest IPv6 deployment in the world. By providing a coordinated 24-hour “test flight”, the event helped
demonstrate that major websites around the world are well-positioned for the move to a global IPv6-enabled Internet, enabling its continued exponential growth.

A key goal of World IPv6 Day was to expose potential issues with real-world IPv6 use under controlled conditions. Given the diversity of technology that powers the Internet, the global nature of the trial was crucial to identify unforeseen problems. The vast majority of users were able to access services as usual, but in rare cases, users experienced impaired access to participating websites during the trial.

After World IPv6 Day, then the question is “what’s next?”. We are pleased that speakers from Google, Yahoo and Hurricane Electric, who did the actual IPv6 deployment work on World IPv6 Day, will come to Hong Kong and share with us their valuable experience, including how they planned for World IPv6 Day, operational issues, deployment problems, security issues and transition mechanism.
