National IPv6 Centre
The Irish National IPv6 Centre is situated at the Telecommunications Systems & Software Group (TSSG) at Waterford Institute of Technology and includes active connectivity and collaboration with its partner institutions HEAnet, The Hamilton Institute, NUI Maynooth and BT Ireland.
The vision of the Irish National Centre for IPv6 is to establish an open collaboration on IPv6, linked to an industrial base, working on research and development issues in Ireland. Though this active engagement in research activities Ireland will have a place at the international table with respects to IPv6 issues.
Broader than the Irish National Centre for IPv6 is Ireland's IPv6 Task Force Irish IPv6 TF, a group made up of public and private sector representatives all seeking to promote the deployment and awareness of IPv6 under the auspices of the Department of Communications, the Marine and Natural Resources (DCMNR), now renamed as the Department of Communications, Energy and Natural Resources (DCENR). The Centre supports the Task Force in its wider public mission.
