Cisco offered Government Agencies IPv6 Training


World IPv6 LogoCisco hosted it’s free one hour webinar yesterday which was designed to help government agencies meet the September 30, 2012 deadline for compliance with the latest IPv6 Internet protocol.

The World IPv6 was launched more than a year ago, officially released on June 8 and the deadline is about soon to arrive. Despite this, according to data by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), only 1% of federal websites are supporting the IP on their email, web services and DNS.

Cisco Marketing manager, Amy Blanchard stated that “We at Cisco understand the urgency and difficulty of this change, therefore have partnered with the Digital Government Institute to host a free one-hour webinar on Aug. 30 (2 p.m. ET) that will give attendees the tools, as well as outline five steps, to help your agency move quickly toward compliance as the clock ticks down”.

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.
