[Bp_ipv6] IPv6 Task Forces: Let's get this conversation started!

Hi Susan et al.,

I have three input to the following thread:

"Has anyone else on this list have any experience with producing a set of
policy recommendations to their government? If so, please feel welcome
to share.”

1. Set of recommendations
APNIC has collected different governments’ efforts in increasing adoption IPv6 through partnership between private sector and public sector.    Pls see:


Based on this past study, we think following sets of recommendations can provide useful input to governments stakeholders.

  *   Mandate for IPv6 readiness in government procurement forms for ICT goods and services
  *   Conduct research on IPv6 readiness in the industry
  *   Develop policies, guidelines, and roadmaps to enable IPv6 in government and network infrastructure
  *   Subsidize IPv6 skilling up for industry members to support human capacity development
  *   Lead the industry by example in adopting IPv6
  *   Partnership between government and industry
  *   Include the necessity of IPv6 deployment in ministerial statements

2. Example: APEC TEL IPv6 Guidelines
APNIC has collaborated with APEC TEL member economies to develop APEC TEL IPv6 Guidelines in 2010.  I think this document has still relevance to government stakeholders.

During developing this document, APEC TEL member economies gave serious consideration to make workable guidelines for all APEC TEL member economies which have diversified Internet development status.


3. Short comment on IPv6 in mobile networks
As mobile networks are becoming a driving force of growth of Internet subscriptions, it would be helpful for regulators to be aware importance of sufficient IP address for mobile networks  in addition to radio frequencies. I think it would be useful to mention this aspect briefly somewhere in the IGF v6 document.

More information is available from:

Hope this helps.

Thank you kindly, Nathalie and Alejandro,

We are collecting different practices and illustrations through the
aforementioned survey, so people are welcome of course to dedicate their
energies there on IPv6 Task Forces (and other practices of course).

We may as well also make use of this list for discussion in the
meantime. Oftentimes things come up in conversation that end up being
particularly valuable for the outcome document.

@Alejandro - thanks for sharing information on the regional LAC-TF
<http://portalipv6.lacnic.net/en/> (I'm now a follower on twitter) and
your "local" example (using the local/regional/global categories) in
Venezuela. The policy paper that you pointed us to is oneÂ
/excellent/Â example of what we are looking for. I'm going to
/paraphrase/ from the paper, if you don't mind, to show others on the
list the recommendations to government.Â

1. require the sites and systems of institutions & public sector
agencies to support IPv6 & IPv4 concurrently.
2. empower the national regulator to ensure that hardware in Venezuela
whether imported or domestic (Alejandro, would appreciate your
confirmation here) supports IPv6 and IPv4 concurrently.Â
3. require the national regulator to do what it needs to do to ensure
that domestic ISPs support IPv6 in coexistence with IPv4.
4. _require_ the National Telecommunications Commission CONATEL,
implementation of necessary actions so that Internet Service
Providers ISPs set their plans for addressing and based on the same
start procedures for requesting resources IPv6 addressing.
 <------(this one I did not paraphrase, as I don't quite understand)

At your discretion, it would be nice to have an update on the reception
of these recommendations by the government, if appropriate and
available. When you presented these to the policymakers, what examples
or hypotheticals did you find to be most convincing for them? How do you
best convey the importance of IPv6 adoption?

Speaking of hypotheticals, I enjoyed this one:

Has anyone else on this list have any experience with producing a set of
policy recommendations to their government? If so, please feel welcome
to share.

Hi Susan,

Thanks for the survey. I have sent it to my contacts at the UK, BE,
NL, CH and SI IPv6 task forces. I believe some of them already
filled in the survey.

With kind regards,

Nathalie KÃ1Ž4nneke-Trenaman
IPv6 Program Manager
