Who is IPv6-Ready ?

Links to IPv6 Information










Based on preliminary contacts, it seems that the users want services not a protocol per se. To gain user acceptance, it needs to be demonstrated that IPv6 is unavoidable and should be taken into account, much like the Y2K problem some years ago. To achieve this goal, there should be a realistic economic model for end-users and the transition costs should be minimal for them.

Additionally, there should be no service disruption during the transition phase.Given some continents like Asia will be forced to move to IPv6, for lack of IPv4 addresses, it should also be made clear to the user community that migrating to IPv6 is mandatory if we want our computers and other devices to be able to communicate with others around the world

The Luxembourg IPv6 Task Force will aim to define a 3-year Plan of Action for the industry and the community, given the millions of existing lPv4 networks and lPv6 will need to coexist in the next few years on the Internet.

Luxembourg IPv6 Task Force Formation

As a general rule, all companies and organisations are welcome to join the task Force. ISOC Luxembourg will launch a campaign to recruit members from the government, the industry, the academic world as well as NGOs and professional organisations.The Task Force will be strictly not-for-profit and will perform a scientific activity. We do not think it will be necessary to incorporate the organisation as such.

Luxembourg IPv6 Task Force Action Plan (2002-2005)

Our main goals will be :

  • Awareness-raising on the impacts of lPv6 on technical, policy and social environment

  • Information dissemination (Web site, mailing lists, etc.)

  • Education and training (seminars, workshops, …)

  • Demonstrations

In relation with information, education and demonstrations, we will seek co-operations and resource polling with other countries.
