Brussels, 27/05/2008
COM(2008) 313 final
Action Plan for the deployment of Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) in Europe

It is the objective of this Action Plan to support the widespread introduction of the
next version of the Internet Protocol (IPv6) because

  • Timely implementation of IPv6 is required as the pool of IP addresses provided by
    the current protocol version 4 is being depleted

  • IPv6 with its huge address space provides a platform for innovation in IP based
    services and applications
