IPv6 Working Group
The IPv6 Working Group is focused both on understanding how IPv6 will enable Internet2 to achieve its goals and on promoting and coordinating the deployment of IPv6 throughout the Internet2 infrastructure.
The Internet2 IPv6 Working Group aims to make IPv6 an effective tool for the Internet2 community and, in so doing, to contribute to the IPv6 work in the broader Internet by exercising, proliferating, and improving IPv6 infrastructure and software in the Internet2 context.

Some key activities of the IPv6 Working Group include:
- Through education and workshops, provide campus engineers the information they need to deploy and support IPv6 within their campuses.
- Clarify, both for campus decision-makers and for IPv6 leaders, why IPv6 is valuable, in strategic and in practical terms, to the Internet2 user community and why they should apply limited resources from within the campus to deployment and integration of IPv6.
