Welcome to the UK IPv6 Council


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

Happy 6th Anniversary of the World IPv6 Launch!

It is hard to believe that six years have passed since the World IPv6 Launch on 6th June 2012. In order to help our community celebrate this important anniversary, we have published a blog post reflecting on six years of IPv6 in the UK. You can read it here.

Next Event

Our next Council event will be a half-day IPv6 Transition Technologies workshop, hosted by Imperial College London on 25th September 2018. The registration is open now and you can secure your seat by getting your free ticket here.

After the workshop, we will retire to a local gastropub, The Queen’s Arms, which was recommended by the host. Everyone is welcome to join us there!

The Council’s vision

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 technical 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“.

We are addressing our vision through holding free events and meetings to facilitate knowledge sharing, and promoting examples of IPv6 best practices.
