Humor: IPv6 Exhaustion Counter

By Dan YorkDirector, Internet Technology

In the spirit of the IPv4 Exhaustion Counter, we were greatly amused to see that there is an IPv6 Exhaustion Counter. ­čÖé


As well as an alternative version for IPv6 prefixes.  Kudos to Sam Bowne for creating this fun little counter!

The beautiful part about IPv6 is that there are no issues with running out of IPv6 addresses… and you can be free to think of IPv6 address plans without all the legacy restrictions of IPv4 and trying to conserve every possible address.

How can we help you make the move to IPv6 today?
