White House Issues IPv6 Advisory

The White House has issued advisory to Internet Service Providers (ISPs) advising them to shift to a better domain before the web world runs out of space.

The White House administration headed by president Barrack Obama has finally decided to take heed of the researchers panic by addressing the issue of the rapidly depleting web addresses under the existing domain system IPv4, reports the Hill.

According to the report, senior administration officials at the White House will speak at a workshop, set to be conducted by the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) at the National Press Club, to address the issue and encourage content providers to upgrade their systems to IPv6, also known as next generation Internet.

The workshop will be headed by the representatives of Obama’s administration team, federal Chief Information Officer (CIO) Vivek Kundra and federal Chief Technology Officer (CTO) Aneesh Chopra.

“Tomorrow NTIA will facilitate stakeholder discussions among business, government, and the Internet technical community to highlight the importance of IPv6 to the continued growth of the Internet economy,” said Lawrence Strickling, administrator at NTIA
