  From the World IPv6 Day to the World IPv6 Launch

In January 2011, Internet companies around the globe announced they would come together to perform the largest test of IPv6 deployment the world had ever seen. After several months of preparation and an intense 24 hours in June, it was clear that the industry had witnessed a great moment in the move towards global deployment of IPv6.

As reports came in and logs were analyzed over the days and weeks that followed, it became increasingly clear that the industry didn't need just another global test. Instead, it was necessary to enable IPv6 once and for all. So, on June 6, 2012, the industry will again unite but not just for a single day. This time, the intention is to turn it on and leave it on. The event will be called the World IPv6 Launch.

This new and crucial step towards the generalization of IPv6 will be announced in detail to participants of V6 World in Paris.
