D-Link Reinforces Support of World IPv6 Launch Day

D-Link has reaffirmed its commitment to the switch to the new IPv6 standard and support for World IPv6 Launch Day on June 6, 2012.

The day is a global event that marks the official transition from IPv4 to IPv6, when Internet service providers (ISPs), home networking equipment manufacturers and web companies around the world permanently enable IPv6 for their products and services.

Based on the success of the World IPv6 Day test last year, thanks in part to the efforts of D-Link, the Internet Society (ISOC) has announced that the IPv6 standard is now set to go live permanently. At the stroke of midnight on June 6 (Coordinated Universal Time, UTC), participating website operators will enable their IPv6 connection. Network operators and ISPs involved will also commit one per cent of their subscribers to be enabled for IPv6 Internet accessibility. These guidelines provide an incentive for vendors, ISPs and their customers to upgrade and enjoy the benefits extended by IPv6 connectivity. Read the rest of this entry »
