The U.S. government, is on lookout for a central authority facilitating a smooth transition to the next-generation Internet.
Federal agencies took up the challenge, of transisting the country to the upgraded network known as Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6). Karen Evans, the administrator in the Office of E-Gov and Information Technology, who is in authority is already providing the oversight, policies and framework needed for the IPv6 transition. Agencies, are fighting against all odds to meet the deadline. By June 30, 2008, it is expected to have completed the transition of their core networks to IPv6. The new version is supposed to support an almost unlimited number of addresses and significantly enhance the mobility of devices connected to the Internet.
