Announcing Internet Society Deploy360 Programme

Hello -
We have been hard at work on a new Internet Society initiative to provide real-world IPv6 and DNSSEC deployment information (with more topics to come). Under development as a project of the Deployment & Operationalization Hub (DO Hub), the name Deploy360 was selected from a range of well-researched and creative options for its clarity, memorability, and Web and social media availability.

We are very excited to officially launch the Internet Society Deploy360 Programme this week, and want to give you a sneak peak. The Programme website is at URLs we have used in the past to discuss this initiative, like, will redirect to this new URL.

Deploy360 serves as a go-to information source to assist network operators, developers, content providers, consumer electronics manufacturers, and enterprise customers with the implementation of new Internet technologies and standards. Components of the new Deploy360 programme include:
 * A growing web portal with technical resources and articles, best practices, case studies, and deployment information
 * Four ION Conferences each year to bring together network operators and leading industry experts
 * Social media interactions to encourage year-round deployment discussions
 * Speaking engagements at technical industry conferences and events around the globe

Many Chapter members are among the first adopters of new technologies and may want to help us provide deployment information via Deploy360. In addition, the collected resources will be valuable to Chapter members actively seeking to deploy new technologies. Deploy360 events will also provide an avenue for Chapter members to meet their colleagues in person.

We intend to grow Deploy360 content rapidly. We are establishing a resource review panel to help curate the content we feature and engaging technology experts to create deployment-related content to fill information gaps.

We will publish a news release announcing the programme tomorrow. Next week, we will be active at the Consumer Electronics Show to debut Deploy360 and give a tutorial on IPv6 to consumer electronics vendors.

We are still polishing the site and adding content, and will continue to add new content regularly. We welcome your comments and questions as we get going. You can email us at, or contact us on one of the numerous social media networks where we are / will be active:

Thank you, and happy new year!
