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) networks or network infrastructure and/or developing, planning to deploy, or deploying Internet of Things (IoT) devices.

Not listed below are websites containing information answering frequently asked questions (FAQs) about topics related to IPv6 and IoT. However, such websites are listed in the IPv6 and IoT Frequently Asked Questions article.

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 possibly even promote the use of software (or devices and related software) within a defined scope of responsibility, and (for a few SWDOs) another purpose is to function as an SDO for that software. An SWDO may have additional purposes that are not limited to software development. The scope of any SDO or SWDO may be self-defined or their scope may be defined by a higher-level organization.

These POCs may be contacted to ask questions about and discuss issues involved in IPv6 planning, analyzing and deployment efforts or IoT developing, planning 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 products or services.
