IPv6 Day

You all know it (or should) we are soon running out of IPv4 addresses. Since we, the Web of Things community, pushing IP literally everywhere, feel a little bit guilty about it we wanted to show our support to today’s IPv6 world day!

<!– BEGIN WORLD IPv6 DAY TEST FLIGHT BADGE: BLUE: 256px –>
WORLD IPV6 DAY is 8 June 2011 – The Future is Forever
<– END WORLD IPv6 DAY TEST FLIGHT BADGE: BLUE: 256px –>
Parts of our test-beds at ETH Zurich already run IPv6 (thanks in great parts to our local IPv6 champion, Mathias Kovatsch).

Of course, it is worth noting that we would even add more support to a 6LoWPAN world day, the stripped-down version of IPv6 that supports resource-constrained devices such as Wireless Sensor Nodes but IPv6 is already a good start!
How about a Web of Things day? 🙂

    6lowpan is just a header compression and fragmentation scheme. Devices that run 6lowpan compression also run IPv6.

    • Definitely but there is a need to support this compression and fragmentation in order for 6lowpan to take off…

  • I am all for Web of Things Day! BTW, do you know of any public WSN IPv6 network? One I can ping, for example.
