Case Study: IPv6 At The U.S. Census Bureau

The United States Census Bureau is one of the leading implementors of IPv6 within the U.S. government. Charles Sun, IPv6 Transition Manager for the U.S. Census Bureau, provided us with information noting:

  • On September 28, 2012, U. S. Census Bureau was the first agency – Operating Unit (OU) within U. S. Department of Commerce to be in full compliance of the U.S. OMB mandate for IPv6 transition Phase I (September 30, 2012);
  • The U.S. Census Bureau is currently on track to complete the second phase of the U.S. OMB mandate to enable all internal agency users to be able to access Internet related services from our internal enterprise network by September 30, 2014 so as to be in full compliance with the U.S. OMB mandate based on the U.S. federal government initial IPv6 transition initiative.

Charles also pointed to two sources of IPv6 statistics:

Charles also wrote a personal opinion article on global IPv6 adoption titled “Stop using Internet Protocol Version 4!” that is available (with registration) at ComputerWorld, and other related sites.

Please visit our IPv6 Case Studies page for more examples of IPv6 deployment.
