Internet Evangelist Promotes IPv6 to the Web World

TOKYO and LUXEMBOURG and BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - June 8, 2009) - The IPv6 Forum and its sub-organization, the IPv6 Ready Logo Committee, today announced the introduction of a new IPv6 Enabled Logo Program aimed at testing and validating Web sites (WWW) for IPv6 readiness and adoption.

"This program is a good step in the right direction. IPv6 needs to be integrated in all Web sites," states Dr. Vint Cerf, Chief Internet Evangelist, Google, and Honorary Chair, IPv6 Forum.

The IPv6 Forum IPv6 Ready Logo Program has clearly demonstrated the widespread support of IPv6 in products. The impressive list of vendors indicates the number of potential IPv6 users ready to use IPv6 and represents a real incentive for Web site owners to enable IPv6 access for their customers. The IPv6 Forum has been tracking the adoption of IPv6 by Web sites and recognized the need for a quality assurance logo program for the Web world. The creation of the new logo program will support IPv6 deployment on Web sites with the goal of sustaining quality IPv6 solutions.

"The launch of the IPv6 Enabled WWW Logo Program is another strategic milestone that signals good integration of IPv6 for Web sites must be sustained to build the new Internet infrastructure," states Latif Ladid, IPv6 Forum President.

"The Web was the first killer app of the IPv4 Internet and no doubt it will be one of them for the IPv6 Internet," states Yanick Pouffary, NAv6TF Technology Director, IPv6 Forum Fellow and advisor to the IPv6 Ready Logo Program.

"We recognize the fact that the market needs the IPv6 Enabled WWW Logo to accelerate the introduction of IPv6 technology," states Hiroshi Esaki, Chairman of the IPv6 Logo Committee, Executive Director of IPv6 Promotion Council Japan and Board member of the WIDE Project.

Liu Dong, Chair China IPv6 Council, commented, "We deployed this IPv6 Logo Program to foster deployment of IPv6 for the Web world and we are looking forward to a positive response."
