Ось і прийшов час офіційного запуску IPv6. Більше аніж п’ятнадцять років знадобилося Інтернету та спільноті, що б розробити та систематизувати нову версію родини протоколів.

Основні постачальники послуг Інтернету (ISP), розробники обладнання для мереж, веб-компанії, державні установи та корпорації в усьому світі переходять на масове використання IPv6 саме 6 червня 2012 року.

Всесвітній запуск IPv6 є важливою віхою в глобальному розгортанні IPv6, оскільки саме шоста версія протоколу має вирішальне значення для подальшого зростання Інтернету в якості платформи для інновацій та економічного розвитку.

Для тих, кому цікаві етапи розвитку, нижче наведено довгий задокументований шлях розвитку, що включає в себе роботу багатьох людей з усього світу – велика подяка їм!

А поки-що тримаємо кулачки та готуємося до багатьох нових проблем та цікавої роботи задля їх вирішення 😉
