New Year, New #IPv6 Deployments

We just published this month’s IPv6 network operator measurements and as usual they include exciting developments in IPv6 deployment from all around the globe.

Sunrise Communications AG (AS5426, AS6730, AS9214), is a Swiss telecommunications provider based in Zurich. According to Wikipedia It has 2.99 million customers making it the second largest telecommunications company in Switzerland after Swisscom. This month’s IPv6 network operator measurements show Sunrise Communications AG ranked 74th with a very rapidly growing IPv6 deployment percentage of 27.76%.

Another interesting development is occurring at Verizon. Verizon Wireless (AS6167, AS22394) has been a stalwart of World IPv6 Launch since 2012 and has had an IPv6 deployment percentage in excess of 80% for several years. More recently Verizon’s fixed line network (AS701, AS702) has started showing evidence of growing IPv6 deployment. We look forward to the continued growth of this significant network as part of the IPv6 Internet.

Finally, the new year seems to have brought a renewed impetus to deploy IPv6 in Armenia.

Celebrating the 7th Launchiversary – what can you do today to promote IPv6?

Seven years ago, on 6 June 2012, thousands of network operators / Internet Service Providers, content providers, website operators, businesses and organizations came together to permanently enable IPv6 on their networks and sites. It’s been amazing to see the the growth since that time! Google’s IPv6 statistics show excellent growth from 2012 with their global IPv6 stats now around 25%.

Our own IPv6 measurements also show that continued growth, with some network operators showing now over 60%, 70% and even 90% IPv6 deployment.

This is great to see, and we look forward to seeing the growth continue over the years ahead.

To that end, what can you do today to help promote further growth of IPv6?

If you are seeking ideas, we have several suggestions:

Or… whatever else you can do to help IPv6 grow! Thank you for your help – and let’s see how we get to even higher deployment numbers.

Happy 7th Launchiversary!

IPv6 Deployment at Free SAS Rockets Up

We just published this month’s IPv6 network operator measurements and I’d like to highlight one particularly exciting development in IPv6 deployment from French ISP Free.

Free SAS – (AS12322), part of the Illiad group, is a French telecommunications company that provides voice, video, data, and Internet telecommunications to consumers in France. Free were an early adopter of IPv6 and deployed their original IPv6 infrastructure in only 5 weeks at the end of 2007 thanks to an innovative 6rd (IPv6 rapid deployment) proposal by Rémi Després. This month’s IPv6 network operator measurements show Free SAS ranked 17th (up from 28th last month) with an IPv6 deployment percentage of 72.73% (up from 45.61% last month). This represents a huge monthly increase and is further proof that Free can deploy IPv6 at scale in very short order.
