The Internet Society IPv6 Deployment Day is a workshop intended to further the deployment of IPv6 in the Internet by developing topical information on IPv6 deployment. It is encouraging to see a number of operators and content providers deploying IPv6 for commercial operation in their networks. This workshop will address business reasons for deploying IPv6 today, relate some lessons learned from these pioneering commercial deployments, and discuss some issues facing the Internet community as a whole. The workshop is a working meeting. There are presentations planned as listed below, but the sessions are working sessions with the intent to discuss the content and produce materials for people to use in their network deployments and product development.
