IPv6 Forum Australia has been engaged with international IPv6 discussion since
2000, in both the global IPv6 Forum and other Internet bodies, such as the IPv6
Special Interest Group (IPv6-SIG) of the Internet Society of Australia
Throught the IPv6-SIG there have been long-term discussions with AGIMO
and the Australian Government, resulting in the earliest comprehensive
IPv6 transition plan for a national government, copied around the world.
The IPv6-SIG helped clarify the National ICT Industry Alliance's 10-year
strategic vision, in which the early adoption of IPv6 was identified as an
issue that should be a government priority.
IPv6 Forum Australia was also a founding member of the committee for the Australian
IPv6 Summit, a major step forward in raising local awareness of the
importance of IPv6.
