IPv6 Penetration Study

Speaker: kc claffy, CAIDA

Presentation: PDF
Transcript

kc claffy presented the results of the IPv6 global penetration study held 8 September to 1 October 2008. This was a follow-up to the survey conducted in the ARIN region in March 2008 and presented in April at ARIN XXI. The survey was expanded to include all 5 RIRs.

Highlights:

  • Caveats: we lack a good definition for IPv6 "use", we don't know if we had multiple respondents from the same organization, and the expanded scope makes it hard to compare to the earlier survey
  • We are starting to build a history that will be useful for future research on IPv6 usage
  • Organization demographics were very similar to those reported in the March survey
  • Most respondents came from Europe. Note: this is grouped by operations, not by where they get resources
  • Discussed hurdles to IPv6 adoption, and details about earlier adopters use of v6

In closing, kc suggested that the community make an effort to distill the discussion and ideas on this topic.
