“The new Internet is coming and Fermilab wants to be ready.


Today the laboratory will take part in World IPv6 Day, a global effort to test out a new, expanded version of the Internet.

This new 24-hour event was created by the Internet Society to promote awareness of a new version of the Internet protocol called IPv6. Fermilab, along with Google, Facebook and other organizations that rely heavily on Internet usage, are actively participating by creating websites with IPv6 addresses and testing access to them.

‘ IPv6 represents the future of the Internet. Efforts are already under way to make sure we are ready for that future,’ said the Computing Division’s Phil Demar, who is in charge of organizing Fermilab’s participation in IPv6 Day.”
