On 8 June, 2011, Google, Facebook, Yahoo!, Akamai and Limelight Networks will be amongst some of the major organisations that will offer their content over IPv6 for a 24-hour “test flight”. The goal of the Test Flight Day is to motivate organizations across the industry – Internet service providers, hardware makers, operating system vendors and web companies – to prepare their services for IPv6 to ensure a successful transition as IPv4 addresses run out.

Join us on this day for a test drive and help accelerate the momentum of IPv6 deployment. Don’t forget to bring your laptop, server, mobile phone, application and test IPv6 connectivity and compatibility! Come over, it’s free and for everyone!
