Abstract

On 22 May 2008 the European Commission adopted a Communication setting out an Action Plan to support the deployment of the Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6).
It is the objective of this Action Plan to support the widespread introduction of the next version of the Internet Protocol (IPv6) because
- Timely implementation of IPv6 is required as the pool of IP addresses provided by the current protocol version 4 is being depleted
- IPv6 with its huge address space provides a platform for innovation in IP based services and applications
The Action Plan sets out a number of measures that should have a measurable effect on the adoption of IPv6 in the market. The Action Plan aims to achieve widespread availability and use of IPv6 by 2010. This objective is quantified to mean that at least 25% of users can do their essential Internet activities without noticing whether they are using IPv4 or IPv6.
