Welcome to the UK IPv6 Council


The UK IPv6 Council is a non-profit technology user group focused on IPv6 deployment and adoption in the United Kingdom.

The UK IPv6 Council was established on April 4th, 2014, as a local chapter of the IPv6 Forum.

Our vision and strategy is to:

  • Create an environment for┬átechnical and business people from all industries/public sector/SP/academia that enables sharing of information, business cases/drivers and experience with IPv6 deployments (in all IT areas that are touched by IP).
  • Enable dialog and create a community. Develop a sense of togetherness and an environment to share knowledge.
  • Work with other organisations in UK and abroad, to make UK IPv6 activities visible in the UK and at an international level.
  • Change the perception of the UK as an “IPv6-negative country“.

First open meeting held, October 2014:

The UK IPv6 Council held its first public face-to-face meeting on 16th October 2014 at IDEALondon. There was a good range of speakers from UK ISPs, content providers and IPv6 adopters, and a technical presentation on IPv6 security.
Slides and videos from the event are now available.
