ISOC-AU Special Interest Groups
IPv6 Special Interest Group
The IPv6 Special Interest Group (IPv6-SIG) is the operational arm of IPv6 Forum Australia, the Australian
chapter of the global IPv6 Forum. Both ISOC-AU and IPv6 Forum Australia
have been drivers of local IPv6 development, having been engaged in
international IPv6 discussions since 2000 in the IPv6 Forum and other
Internet bodies with a focus on IPv6.
Over a period of time the IPv6-SIG conducted discussions with AGIMO and
the Australian Government, resulting in the earliest comprehensive IPv6
transition plan for a national government, which has been copied around
the world. ISOC-AU is a member of NICTIA (the National ICT Industry
Alliance) and the IPv6-SIG helped clarify the organisation's 10-year
strategic vision, in which the early adoption of IPv6 was identified as
an issue that needs to be a government priority.
Some of the projects the IPv6-SIG has supported include the annual IPv6 Summits and the important
Australian study IPv6 for e-Business,
all fundamental steps forward in raising local awareness about the
importance of IPv6.
The Chair of the IPv6-SIG is Tony Hill [president(at)isoc-au.org.au], and
the President of IPv6 Forum Australia is Michael Biber
IPv6-SIG provides a mailing-list called IPv6tech, a forum for
IPv6 technical issues in the Australian Internet environment.
