2012 Global IPv6 Deployment Survey Now Open

Posted: Friday, 01 June 2012

The Number Resource Organization (NRO), on behalf of all the Regional Internet Registries, invites you to participate in the 3rd consecutive Global IPv6 Deployment Monitoring Survey on the current and future use of IPv6.

The purpose of the survey is to better understand where the community is moving, and what can be done to ensure that the Internet community is ready and moving toward widespread adoption of IPv6. As it is mostly the same as the survey carried out globally in 2010 and 2011, comparison of progress will be possible.

The IPv6 Deployment Monitoring Survey is now online, and we encourage all members of our community to participate:


The survey will be open for a month and will close on 30 June 2012.

We anticipate a good response rate as 94% of last year's over 1600 respondents from around the globe indicated that they were interested in participating again. 354 organizations from the ARIN region participated in 2011, and we hope to see even greater participation this year. We encourage all organizations to participate in order for the results 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.

For those interested, the results of last year's survey are available at:

Results of this year's survey will be presented and discussed widely. Please provide your name and contact information on the survey form if you wish to receive the draft survey analysis when available. Please also indicate whether you are willing to share additional data with the TNO and GNKS Consult IPv6 Deployment Monitoring team.

We appreciate your time and interest in completing this survey. If you have any questions concerning the survey, please send an email to info@gnksconsult.com.
