Global IPv6 Deployment Monitoring Survey

Posted: Friday, 04 June 2010

ARIN encourages its community to participate in the 2010 Global IPv6 Deployment Monitoring Survey being conducted by GNKS Consult and TNO and sponsored by the RIPE NCC.

The survey is now available at:

The survey will close on 1 July 2010.

All five Regional Internet Registries have committed to soliciting participation in this survey in order to compile the most complete global IPv6 deployment data possible.

The survey results will provide a better understanding of current IPv6 deployment, and what still needs to be done to ensure the Internet community is ready for the widespread adoption of IPv6. ARIN/CAIDA performed a similar survey in 2008, and it was repeated in 2009 in the RIPE and APNIC region. The 2010 survey will allow for some comparison of progress, which will be extremely valuable in determining the necessary next steps.

The goal is to establish a comprehensive view of present IPv6 penetration and future plans for IPv6 deployment. The survey is composed of 23 questions and can be completed in about 15 minutes. For those without IPv6 allocations or assignments, or who have not yet deployed IPv6, the questions will be fewer in number.

Results of the IPv6 Deployment Monitoring Survey will be made public in the Fall. All participants that provide their name and contact information on the survey form will receive the draft survey analysis when available. Please also indicate if you are willing to share additional data with the TNO and GNKS Consult IPv6 Deployment Monitoring team.

Any questions concerning the survey itself should be addressed to
