The global transition to new IP addresses will be the focus of an industry summit at The NCTA's Cable Show 2011 in June in Chicago. The IPv6 Summit, sponsored by ARRIS, is the first non-engineering conference following "World IPv6 Day" on June 8, when many major organizations will offer their content over IPv6 for a 24-hour testing period, with the goal of motivating the entire industry to prepare their services for IPv6 to ensure a successful transition as IPv4 addresses run out.

The IPv6 Summit will feature several panels concentrating on various elements of the transition as well as opportunities to compare notes, both formally and informally, on transition challenges and solutions. A special IPv6 demonstration area will also be featured on The Cable Show exhibit floor. Developed by Comcast and Time Warner Cable, the demo area will showcase consumer electronics utilizing the new platform.
