In this video Patrick Fälström, advisor to the Swedish government, explains the various models by which governments can encourage adoption of Internet Protocol Version 6. These include changes to legislation, subsidies and statements, as well as acting as a procurer of IPv6-compatible technology.
Fälström emphasises that, "As a provider of services, it is very important for the government that anyone can access their services, just like any private company is interested in having as many customers as possible. For example, the Swedish government has explicitly said that its goal is that anyone should be able to access any service from anywhere."
RIPE NCC, an independent, not-for-profit membership organisation that supports the infrastructure of the internet, recently launched a website focusing on helping organisations migrate to IPv6, which needs to be completed by 2011.
