IPv6 on the Timico core

As the clock continues to tick on the IPv4 exhaustion counter I note that we have dropped down to 8% of addresses remaining.  I don’t know when this happened but I certainly get the feeling at as we approach the end it is speeding up – I was expecting it to slow down as people conserve address space.

Anyway I’m pleased to say we have now rolled out IPv6 across the Timico core network.  Not open for business yet but we are getting there and we do have a few trialists up and running.

Any bets on when the counter gets to 5%?

  1. Kudos on getting IPv6 deployed, or atleast moving the direction of offering commercial services that support IPv6. More content providers and carriers need to do likewise, and thankfully – many are (2010 will be a very “IPv6 interesting” year!).

    As for when we hit 5%, statistics are a blind-man’s game – but I like Geoff Huston’s numbers @ http://www.potaroo.net/tools/ipv4/index.html
