With real deployment of IPv6 happening around the world since the time of World IPv6 Launch, what does “success” look like? How much IPv6 traffic is “enough”? What are key milestones for IPv6 progress?
The latest updated IPv6 measurements are now available for July 2013. More operators continue to add themselves to our measurements list and we see more IPv6 access from more places. Noteworthy this month is Singaporean ISP, M1, who entered the list this month, and also Hughes Network Systems who has a major IPv6 deployment that they have been rolling out for some time.
One year ago today, thousands of people around the world came together to permanently enable IPv6 on their websites, access networks and in their devices.
As we’ve noted this week through our news release and then infographic, the world has changed greatly in this past year. The percentage of users using IPv6 has doubled and in fact more than doubled for many of the networks we are now measuring.
Articles, blog posts and other media are popping up all across the Internet today as so many people join in the celebration – we’re seeing them in the #v6launch and #IPv6 hashtags on Twitter, we’re seeing them on Google+, on Facebook, in LinkedIn groups… and everywhere.
THANK YOU for all you have done over this past year to help move IPv6 forward!
Together we have made IPv6 an integral part of the global Internet and a regular aspect of mainstream network planning and deployment – and we look forward to continuing to work with all of you over the months and years ahead.
How has the Internet changed in the one year since World IPv6 Launch? How many more sites, network operators and home router vendors are now using IPv6? In honor of the 1-year anniversary of World IPv6 Launch, we’ve released an updated infographic at:
To help tell the story of what happened with the beginning of World IPv6 Launch on June 6, 2012, we created this infographic that explains through both numbers and charts how the Internet changed – and is continuing to change!
