More than one thousand Latin American and Caribbean Internet 
organizations are providing services over IPv6, the new Internet 
platform, announced the manager of the Engineering Department at the 
Latin American and Caribbean Internet Addresses Registry (LACNIC), 
Arturo Servin, during a panel of experts at the 43rd ICANN meeting that 
took place in San Jose, Costa Rica, from 11 to 16 March, 2012.

He also noted that more than 1000 members with IPv6 addresses means that 
45% of current members around the region now have the new address 
system, and that Brazil and Mexico are leading this growth. "This is a 
great step for the community as a whole; it shows that we are on the 
right track, and that National Registries NIC.br and NIC.MX are playing 
a major role", said LACNIC's Engineering Manager.

These efforts on the part of both the community and LACNIC aimed at 
quickly expanding the new technology in the region must continue and 
increase, so that those who have not yet received IPv6 addresses can 
have access to them and continue to grow and provide new services.

Arturo Servin highlighted the fact that the upcoming LACNIC meeting in 
Quito "will focus on IPv6 deployment, with activities such as the 
meeting with technology managers and CTOs that will allow us to advance 
in terms of knowledge and commitment on the part of the region's major 
stakeholders towards effective deployment."
