According to Incognito Software's "IPv6 Readiness" survey, only a small percentage of respondents are IPv6-ready.
According to Incognito Software's "IPv6 Readiness" survey, only a small percentage of respondents are IPv6-ready, and even fewer are offering IPv6 to their end-users, due in large part to challenges operators face with infrastructure upgrades, compatible device support, and customer education. However, three-quarters of respondents said they recognize the importance of IPv6 and have begun planning for it within their organizations.

Among the findings:

  • Most operators are transitioning to IPv6 because they have no other options.
  • CPE upgrades top the list of IPv6 challenges.
  • Most operators are optimistic about their rollout schedules.
  • Executive buy-in is a key driver of IPv6.
  • Dual-stack is still the preferred method of transition for most service providers.
