Panel Session: IPv6 is Live! Real World Success Stories
Sunday, 15 January 2017, 3:30PM – 5:00PM
IPv6 now reaches 33% of Internet users in the USA, 60% in Belgium, 14% in Japan and 11% in Brazil. That means well over 100 million users worldwide, thanks to many large deployments by mobile and broadband providers. It also means we can gather a wealth of real-world data on the performance, benefits and realities of an IPv6 service offering.
There’s no doubt that IPv6 is ready for production 24×7 deployment, and that today’s early adopters are getting an edge in Internet service provision. Even so, for many operators, and industries at a national level, IPv6 isn’t on the corporate agenda yet, at least for the time being.
In this session we will look at successful IPv6 deployments around the world, on both the content and carriage sides. We’ll find out what decisions led to these IPv6 investments and how those have paid off. We’ll make the case that IPv6 deployment deserves more attention based on real world data that supports a business case and commitment to IPv6.
