UK IPv6 COUNCIL Has Been Founded
London/Luxembourg, April 4, 2014 -The IPv6 Forum welcomes the formation of a new IPv6 initiative with the establishment of the UK IPv6 Council under the leadership of Mrs. Veronika McKillop, as its President.
"The aim of the UK IPv6 Council is to attract key stakeholders from government, industry and academia to jointly promote IPv6 initiatives and design together the IPv6 vision and strategy for the UK to embrace the New Internet world based on IPv6" stated Mrs. Veronika McKilopp, President, UK IPv6 Council.
The prime objective of the UK IPv6 Council and its members is to promote deployment and coordinated uptake of the new Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) with support from industry, education, research communities and government agencies enabling equitable access to technology and knowledge.
"The UK IPv6 Council has been created to extend to the UK Internet community a strong voice and representation in the new Internet world to create momentum in deploying IPv6" stated Latif Ladid, IPv6 Forum President.
The Internet World has been using the Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) for the last two decades. Despite its tremendous success, IPv4 is showing signs of strain especially in its fast depleting IP address space and its growing security concerns. IPv6 preserves everything good in today's Internet, and adds much more, such as virtually unlimited IP address space to connect everyone and everything, stateless auto-configuration, seamless mobility, automated network management and new optional service levels.
