More urgency for agencies to switch to IPV-6

The online world has changed, for your business or agency.

The Internet Assigned Numbers Authority has given out its last block of IPV-4 addresses.

This means that sometime in the near future, every new device that you connect to the Internet will use a new kind of address – IPV-6.

Federal agencies have been making the move to that protocol for years. But a new sense of urgency has entered the picture.

Pete Tseronis, chair of the Federal IPV-6 Task Force, explains what all of this means for you and your agency.
