Listed below are some Points of Contact (PoCs) for United States (US) government organizations, Department of Defense (DoD) organizations, and non-government organizations including open source communities, standards development organizations (SDOs), and software development organizations (SWDOs) engaged in planning for, analyzing or deploying Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) network infrastructure.

An SWDO is an organization formed by one or more interested individuals, non-commercial organizations and commercial companies. SDOs are similar to SWDOs in many organizational aspects, but their purposes are quite different. The purpose of an SDO is to develop, publish and maintain standards and policies within a defined scope of responsibility. One purpose of an SWDO is to develop, publish, maintain, and/or promote use of software within a defined scope of responsibility, and (for a few SWDOs) another purpose is to function as an SDO. An SWDO often has purposes in addition to software development. The scope of an SDO or SWDO may be self-defined or it may be defined by a higher level organization.

These POCs may be used to ask questions about and discuss issues involved in IPv6 planning, analyzing and deployment efforts. This list is not intended to be either authoritative or exhaustive.

Reminder: This information is not to be used for commercial purposes, such as promotion of commercial products or services.
