IPv6 deployment is accelerating at a fast pace. It’s exciting to see that the global IPv6 deployment figures show a continuing upward trend:
Cisco has been helping the Industry track this trend with our global deployment statistics portal: http://6lab.cisco.com/stats/. Go to the portal today and you can even follow @cisco6lab on Twitter.
We are also showcasing our IPv6 deployment adoption later this month at the annual Cisco Live Europe event in Milan. We are proud to announce that IPv6 content and demonstrations will be key features at our event from the show room floor to technical sessions, breakouts, panels, labs, and more. Read More »

It has been a year since the World IPv6 Launch and in that year the global usage of IPv6 has more than doubled. Where traditionally it is believed that there is no IPv6 traffic on the Internet is now shown differently! The reality of real existing user traffic demonstrates the progress of the next generation of the Internet. During the World IPv6 Launch a year ago there was about 0.64% of Internet traffic carried over IPv6, while right now about 1.35% of the Internet traffic is carried over IPv6. That is nearly double and experts believe exponential growth is expected over the next couple of years.
Another data-point is the readiness of the service providers regarding IPv6. On the Internet there are about 44,470 Autonomous networks announcing one or more IPv6 prefixes into the global routing system. A year ago only about 13.7% of them were announcing IPv6 prefixes. That number increased to 16.1% resulting in 7.168 networks out of the 44.470 that are announcing IPv6 prefixes right now.
