IPv6 traffic in the Internet during 2013-Q3, top10 Countries, ISP:s, Universities

Myth 1:
“..We have heard about IPv6 in decades, it will never take off-…..”

 

Yes, that is right. IPv6 has been around for many years at least since very late 90:s and during the past everyone was waiting for others to implement FIRST. But, Graph 1,2 showing clear messages about the top ten IPv6 countries and the amount of IPv6 growth during the last quarter in 2013. The graph shows about 5% of IPv6 usage is in big countries (high data traffic) while smaller countries hits 6-9% intervals. It should be noted that the level of IPv6 usage in Germany during the last quarter increased by 43% and a growth of 25% for the US. This is a new trend which will dominate the future use of IPv6.

Myth 2:

“…..IPv6 is too complex, too expensive, lack of expertise, lack of HW and SW are the main reason that operators (Internet Service providers), Content providers will never use IPv6……”

 

The amount of the IPv6 traffic (graph 3, 4) for big companies like Google (54%), Verizon Wireless (41%), Comcast (10%), AT&T (9%). The trend is almost clear, 56% IPv6 growth for Time Warner Cable and 49% for Comcast, 37% for Dutsche Telekom. Big ISP:s and content providers around the world started using IPv6 and setting the strategy for their future networking technology.

Myth 3:

“……There are few IPv6 courses at universities and newly graduated are not even able to use IPv6 while studying at college/universities……”

Graph 5, 6 showing the top ten universities around the world (US, Canada, Czech Republic, Austria) with highest amount of IPv6 usage. Iowa State University, US had 50% IPv6 traffic growth during 2013-Q4. Like other new Technologies even universities need pushes for IPv6. The trend is clear and there will be lots of new Courses.

If you didn’t do this before and IMHO, it is time to make the final decision for initiating the IPv6 activities. Setting up the project plan including detailed time plan, budget, resources, labs, training, HW, SW, Etc.
