The FRITZ!Box manufacturer AVM of Germany is taking part in World IPv6
Day. The Internet Society (ISOC) organization has announced a global
initiative for the new Internet standard IPv6, to be held on June 8. The aim
of the 24-hour initiative is to get Internet providers, hardware
manufacturers, and website operators ready for the transition from IPv4 to
IPv6. A quick changeover to the new standard is required because the last
available IPv4 address blocks were allocated in February of this year. AVM
has already been supporting IPv6 for two years and has even been
demonstrating the reliability of the FRITZ!Box in conjunction with the new
standard in collaboration with 7,000 IPv6 customers of the Dutch Internet
provider XS4ALL.
