Internet Evangelist promotes IPv6 to the Web World 

 Tokyo-Luxembourg-Boston – June 8, 2009 – The IPv6 Forum and its sub-organization, the 
IPv6 Ready Logo Committee, today announced the introduction of a new IPv6 Enabled Logo 
Program aimed at testing and validating Web sites (WWW) for IPv6 readiness and 

 “This program is a good step in the right direction. IPv6 needs to be integrated in 
all web sites” states Dr. Vint Cerf, Internet Evangelist, Google & Honorary Chair,

the introduction of IPv6 technology,” states Hiroshi Esaki, Chairman of the IPv6 Logo 
Committee, Executive Director of IPv6 Promotion Council Japan and Board member of the 
WIDE Project.  

Liu Dong, Chair China IPv6 Council, commented, “We deployed this IPv6 logo program to 
foster deployment of IPv6 for the Web world and we are looking forward to a positive
