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, 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 technical and business case whitepapers, IPv6 certifications, IPv6-centric conferences, IPv6 test and interoperability events, IPv6 deployment readiness guides, and collaboration with IPv6 task forces 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 and Moonv6 (now Boundv6). Jim’s passing was a difficult loss for IPv6 advocates. Bound was a Senior Fellow with HP, Chair of the North American IPv6 Task Force and CTO of the IPv6 Forum. With passion, perseverance, and inspiration, 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 leaders eager to innovate around the inevitable adoption of IPng. The journey is the reward Jim and each of us thank you for inviting us on your flight.
