IPv6 Executive Briefing

The IPv6 Executive Briefing is available in PDF here.

The briefing is for non-technical board directors and senior management at organisations for which information technology is business critical. It focuses on the implications for your business, but those in technology roles may also find it a useful resource for discussing the issues with non-technical colleagues.

IPv6 Project Planning Guide

The IPv6 Project Planning Guide is available in PDF here.

This guide is for project managers and technical staff at organisations for which information technology is business critical, and for technical consultants and suppliers to such organisations. It accompanies the publication of the “Executive Briefing on the New Version of the Internet Protocol” and its recommendation to make your organisation visible to the outside world over IPv6.
