Hi Quincy,

IPv6 is ready for deployment, and the standardization status is done in the
sense that you will not buy now equipment that can't work tomorrow.

You can take a look to the last AfriNIC talk that I did regarding why IPv6
has many more advantages than just addresses.

Also, a lot of information is available at http://www.ipv6tf.org.
