Software and hardware providers must implement support for IPv6 in their products to ensure that they are available in standard production when necessary. Governments must give the example using the IPv6 for their own content and services and encouraging IPv6 deployment efforts in their countries. The requirements for IPv6 on public procurement policies are essential at this time. Civil society, in particular organizations and end users, should request that all the services they received from their ISPs and vendors be prepared for IPv6, in order to boost demand and ensure competitive availability of IPv6 services in the coming years. Campaign of ONR to promote the next generation of Internet Protocol continues to have a positive impact on the Internet community.

IPv6 allocations increased nearly 30% in 2009, to members of the community recognize the benefits that can be derived from their adoption. Many of those who make decisions do not realize the amount of devices that require an IP address mobile phones, computers, laptops, servers, routers, etc., said Raul Echeberria, Secretary of NRO. The number of available IPv4 addresses is shrinking rapidly, and if the global Internet community does not recognize this, face serious consequences in the very near future. As such, NRO is working to educate everyone from network operators to top executives and Government representatives, on the importance that has the adoption the IPv6, added Echeberria. IP addresses are assigned by Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA), a contract operated by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). IANA distributes IP to the RIR address, which, in turn, assign them to users in their respective regions. This is the moment that serve Internet community, said Rod Beckstrom, President and CEO of ICANN. Do to global Internet grow and thrive in an unlimited, we have to encourage the rapid overall adoption of the IPv6 protocol?.
