Front Porch announced today that it is participating in World IPv6 Day, scheduled for June 8, 2011. One of the day’s highlights is demonstrating Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) compatibility of its product line, including the popular PorchLight™ appliance, used for Direct-to-the-Browser messaging. A wide range of operating systems, browsers, and product configurations are slated for testing, as well as multiple solution use cases. A dedicated IPv6 lab environment with public IPv6 addresses is constructed already, and numerous test runs have been conducted.

Additionally, acting as end users as part of the World IPv6 Day, Front Porch is validating connectivity from its headquarters to various IPv6-enabled Web sites.

The goal of World IPv6 Day is to motivate organizations across the industry—from hardware manufacturers and ISPs to Web site operators—to prepare services for IPv6 and help ensure a smooth transition from IPv4. As a result, the Internet Society (ISOC) is encouraging network operators to enable IPv6 connectivity to end users on World IPv6 Day. Web site owners are requested to run IPv6 and IPv4 (dual stack) on their sites.
