The FRITZ!Box manufacturer AVM of Germany is taking part in World IPv6 Day.

The aim of the 24-hour initiative is to get Internet providers, hardware manufacturers, and website operators ready for the transition from IPv4 to IPv6. A quick changeover to the new standard is required because the last available IPv4 address blocks were allocated in February of this year. AVM has already been supporting IPv6 for two years and has even been demonstrating the reliability of the FRITZ!Box in conjunction with the new standard in collaboration with 7,000 IPv6 customers of the Dutch Internet provider XS4ALL.
