Google, Facebook, Yahoo and an number of other later Internet companies have started testing IPV6 from today, and the companies are giving IPV6 a 24 hour ‘test flight’, in an attempt to motivate other companies to get their services ready for IPV6.
On 8 June, 2011, Google, Facebook, Yahoo!, Akamai and Limelight Networks will be amongst some of the major organisations that will offer their content over IPv6 for a 24-hour “test flight”. The goal of the Test Flight Day is to motivate organizations across the industry – Internet service providers, hardware makers, operating system vendors and web companies – to prepare their services for IPv6 to ensure a successful transition as IPv4 addresses run out.
You can find out more details about the IPV6 Test over at World IPV6 Day.
