The Webinar, called “5 Steps to Meet the September 30 IPv6 Deadline,” included the following topics: 
  • How to get your agency on the road to compliance
  • Where to find agency help in the federal government
  • How to get the best services from the GSA schedules
  • About the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) IPv6 standards and how IPv6 has been integrated into a long list of USGv6-certified products
  • How five federal agencies, including the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, have already made the transition.
