WMO to explore IPv6 for usage in the GTS

The new version 6 of the Internet Protocol (IPv6) an its applications for meteorological data will be explored by the WMO Expert Team on Communication Techniques and Structure.

The five year WMO IPv6 initiative has as objective "to enable the usage of IPv6 for WIS/GTS related exchanges". The main focus of the initiative will be to assess the current situation with respect to IPv6 as used by WMO Members, to conduct a pilot project to exchange meteorological data using IPv6, to update the WMO Regulatory Material, as well as to develop a capacity develpoment strategy for IPv6.

In 2013, the main focus will be to assess WMO Members awareness of IPv6 and to conduct the pilot project. An online questionnaire has been circulated for the assessment, which is available at:

http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/WMOIPV6

The pilot project is implemented by volunteer sites. WMO Members interested in participating can contact the WIS Team (wis-help@wmo.int) at the WMO Secretariat.

The internet protocol is the basis of most of the data exchange in the GTS. Since the address space of IPv4 is rapidly becoming depleted, a migration to IPv6, with its increased address space, will become necessary at some point in the future. The WMO IPv6 initiative makes sure that WMO is prepared for an eventual activation, and that the advantages of using IPv6 are available to all WMO Members.
