Practical IPv6 for Government

The NZ IPv6 Task Force is pleased to announce the “Practical IPv6 for Government” conference on 23 February 2012 hosted by the New Zealand IPv6 Task Force in collaboration with the Department of Internal Affairs and facilitated by InternetNZ.

We are inviting those working in ICT in central or local Government or who supply services to such. The formal invitation is here including how to RSVP.

The theme of “Cost-effective and timely adoption of IPv6” addresses the challenge we all face with IPv6 today. We’ve heard the message, it’s now about procurement and implementation. We all seek to understand best practice approaches and learn from other’s experiences.

The conference follows and is informed by the release of a detailed Task Force report on IPv6 state-sector adoption in New Zealand available at:

The conference programme will be dominated by pragmatic sessions. Following an hour of keynote addresses, presentations will be given about IPv6 services available to the Government sector including One.Govt, hosting and IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-Service). In the afternoon there will be local IPv6 case studies and three discussion workshops targeted at IPv6 Security, LAN/addressing and Websites/WAN.

The draft programme is here. It will continue to be updated closer to the event.

2012 will be a critical year for progressing IPv6 uptake in the Government sector. This conference will provide excellent support in that process.

Please register now as per the formal invitation as there will be a maximum attendance possible.
