ARIN on the Transition of IPv4 to IPv6

March 2nd, 2012

John Curran from the American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN) joins us for the TPN CES Live coverage. John talked about what is happening with IPv4 and the switch to IPv6. In the past year, the last remaining IPv4 addresses were handed out to global regions.

World IPv6 Launch takes place on June 6, 2012. Starting to connect customers up will be an organized effort, just like with the DTV transistion, or Y2K. Best part is you can go to your ISP, and ask to have IPv6 turned on.

IT departments should be prepared for this transition. 340 undecillion IP addresses, which means we could cover a good chunk of the Universe before we run out of addresses.
