IPv6 is the evolution of the current IP protocol we all use.
However we're running out of addresses apparently.

When will the UK government start making it mandatory for its organisations to start using it in it's network addressing schemes?

Hallo

I don't see it ever being mandated, if it does it will need to be done globally otherwise data is going to get stuck as it leaves the UK as the routers will need to handle IPv6 addresses and not IPv4.

We have lots of clever tricks for IPv4 and I am sure there are enough to go round.

It will come, eventually.

The company I work for and Level3 (tier1 ISP) are both in the process of moving from tunneled IPv6 to Native (Dual Stack), so it will happen, just not sure when globally.
