Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6)

Part of NTIA's mission is to convene stakeholders to address today’s critical communications and technology issues. One of these issues is the adoption and deployment of Internet Protocol version six (IPv6).  IPv6 is an Internet addressing system designed to expand the number of IP addresses available because the current supply will eventually exhaust. The IPv6 transition is critical to the continued growth of the Internet. While industry action and planning are needed, consumers do not need to take action to prepare for the IPv6 transition.

IPv6 Readiness Tool for Businesses
The IPv6 Readiness Tool for Businesses is a comprehensive checklist for businesses preparing to deploy and adopt IPv6. The tool was developed by experts from industry and the Internet technical community in response to a call from U.S. Chief Technology Officer Aneesh Chopra at an IPv6 workshop hosted by NTIA in September 2010.
