About the IPv6 Hall of Fame
The IPv6 Hall of Fame (IPv6halloffame.com) is a recognition program and virtual museum that celebrates the development of IPv6 and the individuals whose extraordinary contributions have made the progress possible. The IPv6 Hall of Fame was launched by the IPv6 Forum.

 Dr. Vinton G. CERF
Vint stated during the launch of the IPv6 Hall of Fame in Nanjing in November 2018:
“ As you know the Internet Society started an Internet Hall of Fame to recognise pioneers, connectors and contributors to the Internet technology and growth, but now I think it’s time to recognise those who led the path to IP version 6 which uses a much larger address space to deal with the challenges of Internet of Things and an increasing user population”

 Prof. Wu Hequan
Mr. Wu Hequan stated during the launch of the IPv6 Hall of Fame in Nanjing in November 2018:
“ IPv6 has become the most appropriate solution because of the internationalisation of the standard and its maturity. China introduced 15 years ago the large scale CNGI project to study, research and implement IPv6. The Chinese government introduced a plan back in Noember 2017 to deploy IPv6 on a larger scale and made remarkable progress. As the biggest Internet country, China should make a contribution in the development of IPv6. We are willing to work with other countries to promote the deployment of IPv6”

 Dr. Jun Murai
Dr. Jun Murai stated during the launch of the IPv6 Hall of Fame in Nanjing in November 2018:
“ I remember when we started to discuss about IPng ( IP Next Generation) and IPv6 from the early 90’ies and I remember many people who have been devoting their time on the design, development and deployment of IPv6. In that sense, the IPv6 Hall of Fame is a great idea to promote their efforts and identify their great contributions to the Internet and also to support the future of IPv6 deployment which of course very importnat for the future of the Internet.”
