The OMB has said that all Federal government agencies switch from internet protocol 4 to internet protocol 6. While some basic switchover have already happened, this is going to be a large scale project so it is important to learn as much about the process as possible.
The web conference is co-sponsored by Verio and NTT Communications, OPNET Technologies, and Hexago.
Registration for the event is currently open and free at: http://www.xtalks.com/ipv6.ashx
