IPv6 Profile for Public Procurement
The cost of the transition is a one-time cost, which means that once the hardware, operating systems and applications are updated to support IPv6, the natural maintenance cycle, being existing services and infrastructures, pay for the recurrent costs. An early requirement for IPv6 in the procurement policies will make any investment future-proof. This would need the definition of the IPv6 profile for products, applications and services to be used in the procurement process.
One of the goals of GEN6 is to develop the IPv6 Profile for public procurement.
