IPv6 in the Nordics (and why it’s important)

7 dec 2022, 12:00–13:00 | Organizer: ICANN

The event has passed.

To reach another person on the Internet you have to type an address into your computer – a name or a number. Welcome to an event where you will learn about the latest development among IP numbers (i.e IP addresses), with focus on the latest version of IP: IPv6 (Internet Protocol version 6) and why it is so important.

About the event

As one of the world’s five Regional Internet Registries, the RIPE NCC collects a lot of data around Internet development and connectivity throughout Europe - including IPv6 deployment.

In this talk, we’ll explain the basics of IPv6 and why it’s so important for the Internet’s continued growth and innovation. We’ll also give an overview of the current state of IPv6 deployment in the Nordic countries, including how traffic is routed over IPv6, the relationship between different networks in these countries, and how much IPv6 address space is actually in use.

This event is organized by the nonprofit organization ICANN, The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, and is part of ICANN Training Series - Nordic Region.


To reach another person on the Internet you have to type an address into your computer - a name or a number. That address has to be unique so computers know where to find each other. ICANN coordinates these unique identifiers across the world. Without that coordination we wouldn't have one global Internet.

ICANN was formed in 1998. It is a not-for-profit partnership of people from all over the world dedicated to keeping the Internet secure, stable and interoperable. It promotes competition and develops policy on the Internet’s unique identifiers.

ICANN doesn’t control content on the Internet. It cannot stop spam and it doesn’t deal with access to the Internet. But through its coordination role of the Internet’s naming system, it does have an important impact on the expansion and evolution of the Internet.
