Draft of the next US Federal Government IPv6 guidance to civilian agencies memo released

Hello all,

Since it’s been released for comment on the Federal Register this week and it’s something that potentially has ripple effects to network and equipment providers in the US especially, I thought some here might be interested in the following.

Request for Comments on Updated Guidance for Completing the Transition to the Next Generation Internet Protocol, Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6)


The draft memo itself is not necessarily straightforward to locate, but it is published on the Federal CIO website.


The memo outlines the next mandated IPv6 transition step for US civilian agencies and establishes reporting requirements on their progress toward those mandated goals.

The comment process is outlined in the Federal Register notice should anyone have comments they would like to submit.
