As IPv6 Launch Day looms, is keeping IPv4 a bad idea? -- Government Computer News

The Internet Society is promoting the World IPv6 Launch on June 6, when Internet service providers, hardware manufacturers and Web-based companies will permanently enable the next generation of Internet Protocols on their products and services.

This move is voluntary, but it also is inevitable as the world’s supply of new IPv4 addresses runs dry and new customers and devices coming online begin using the new addresses. The focus of the transition so far has been turning on the new protocols, but some people already are turning their thoughts to the need to turn off IPv4, which has served the Internet well since its inception.
