Welcome to the North American IPv6 Task Force website.
The North American IPv6 Task Force (NAv6TF) is a sub-chapter of the IPv6 Forum dedicated to the advancement and propagation of IPv6 (Internet Protocol, version 6) in the North American continent. Comprised of individual members organized under Non-profit 501(c)(3) entities, rather than corporate sponsors, the NAv6TF mission is to provide technical leadership and innovative thought for the successful integration of IPv6 into all facets of networking and telecommunications infrastructure, present and future.
Through its continued facilitation of publications, IPv6 certifications, IPv6-centric conferences, IPv6 test and interoperability events, IPv6 deployment readiness guides, and collaborative leaders from around the globe, the NAv6TF will strive to be the guiding force for IPv6 adoption and readiness in the U.S., Canada and Mexico.
The North American IPv6 Task Force continues to thrive thanks to Jim Bound († 2009) and his initial vision of IPv6 adoption. Jim headed our movement and weaved the social fabric which brought us together. We continue to pursue Jim Bound’s visionary goal of IPv6 Deployment through our voluntary membership of scientists and engineers. The journey is the reward Jim and each of us thank you for inviting us on your flight.
