The IPv6 Forum Launches the “IPv6 ISP HALL OF FAME" The World IPv6 Service ISP CONTEST – Dec 6, 2011
From the 8700 organisations worldwide that have received IPv6 prefixes from the IP registries, some 50% have announced their prefixes on the routing table. However only a fraction of these have offered IPv6 service to their customers.
The World IPv6 Day has demonstrated that with IPv6 enabled service, the expected great impact could have happened. It is quite normal that ISPs would need more time to enable IPv6 service after the central IANA IP address pool depletion in February 2011.
To register your IPv6 Service in the IPv6 Service Hall of Fame, please go to the IPv6 Enabled Program to get your ISP Logo, then a proof of service deployment to your customer on your web site offering IPv6 service to your customers would be needed: http://www.ipv6forum.com/ipv6_Hall-of-fame/
“ISPs have now the opportunity to demonstrate their pioneering work and be the first on the IPv6 Service Hall of Fame” states Latif Ladid, IPv6 Forum President Senior Researcher at University of Luxembourg, Security and Trust (SnT) Center. Emeritus Trustee, Internet Society.
“The World IPv6 day has demonstrated that the ISPs are the missing link in this evolution” states Yanick Pouffary, NAv6TF Technology Director, IPv6 Forum Fellow and IPv6 Forum (Ready & Enabled) Logo Programs Chairperson.
“The ISP Enable Program has seen steady growth. However, there is still a lot of work ahead of us to get IPv6 service around the world on equal footing, This program will give the IPv6 pioneers a chance to make immediate impact." states Liu Dong, Chair China IPv6 Council, Chair, IPv6 Enable Program.
