Got IPv6? Can You Please Help With This IPv6 Deployment Survey?

By Dan YorkDirector, Internet Technology

NRO logoDo you have IPv6 deployed within your network? If so, could you please take a moment to participate in the 3rd annual “IPv6 Deployment Monitoring Survey” on the current and future use of IPv6?  The survey is at:

Sponsored by the Number Resource Organization (NRO), the coordinating body for the 5 Regional Internet Registries[1], the purpose of the survey is, in the NRO’s words:

to better understand where the community is moving, and what can be done to ensure 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.

We encourage all organisations to participate in this survey, which we hope will 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.

The results will be publicly available, as last year’s results are, and if you can spare the few minutes to answer the survey it will greatly help the registries – and all of us – understand future trends for IPv6 deployment.

THE SURVEY DEADLINE IS JUNE 30, 2012, so please participate in the survey as soon as possible.

Thank you!

[1] The 5 Regional Internet Registries (RIRs) are: AfriNIC, APNIC, ARIN, LACNIC and RIPE NCC. The RIRs are responsible for managing IP address allocations (both IPv4 and IPv6) within their respective geographical regions.
