Webmaster ToolboxGENEVA, SWITZERLAND and RESTON, VIRGINIA, USA – Hundreds of websites and Internet service providers around the world are joining Facebook, Google (NASDAQ: GOOG), Yahoo (NASDAQ:YHOO), Akamai (NASDAQ: AKAM), Limelight Networks (NASDAQ: LLNW) as participants in World IPv6 Day for the first global-scale trial of the new Internet Protocol, IPv6, being organized by the Internet Society.

During World IPv6 Day on 8 June 2011, more than 225 participating organizations from every part of the globe will enable IPv6 on their main services for 24 hours. With IPv4 addresses running out this year, the industry must act quickly to accelerate full IPv6 adoption or risk increased costs and limited functionality online for Internet users everywhere. World IPv6 Day participants are coming together to help motivate organizations across the industry—Internet service providers, hardware manufacturers, operating system vendors and other web companies—to prepare their services for the transition.

“The building interest in and amazing response to World IPv6 Day around the world is extremely encouraging, and highlights the growing momentum behind deploying IPv6,” said Leslie Daigle, Chief Internet Technology Officer for the Internet Society. “We see this test flight as an important step towards ensuring the global Internet can continue to grow and evolve so that it can connect billions of new users and devices.” Read more

February 17, 2011 by · Comments Off on NYI Announces IPv6 Support 

Hosting BlogNEW YORK, NY — NYI, a New York City-based, mission-critical data services provider, today announced an aggressive program to raise awareness of IPv6, the new network address protocol that succeeds Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4), an outmoded technology in use since 1981 whose supply of addresses is reaching critical levels. NYI’s efforts will include an aggressive rollout of the new protocol as well as participation, along with Google and other tech titans, in World IPv6 Day on June 8, 2011.

According to a recent interview in TechNewsWorld.com with ICSA Labs’ Guy Snyder, there are currently only five percent of IPv4 addresses left, with the supply expected to be exhausted in the next 10 to 12 months. Thankfully, with the stance of NYI and other like minds in both the mission-critical data services industry and government, the situation represents an opportunity, rather than a cause for alarm.
