The prime objective of the Ecuador 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 Ecuador IPv6 Council has been created to extend to the Ecuadorian 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 three 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, end to end security and new optional service levels.
