Verizon Wireless At 56% IPv6 In Latest World IPv6 Launch Measurements

Some amazing percentages of IPv6 deployment in the February 2015 World IPv6 Launch measurements. As I wrote about on the Deploy360 blog, Verizon Wireless now is showing 56% IPv6 deployment and T-Mobile USA just crossed over 50% IPv6.

Verizon Wireless IPv6 %If you read the notes on the bottom of the measurements page you can see that Google, Facebook, Akamai, LinkedIn and Yahoo! are all measuring the amount of the amount of IPv6 they are seeing to their sites and reporting that back to the World IPv6 Launch project.

The key point for application developers is that all those people on those networks will be able to natively connect over IPv6 – if your application works over IPv6.  

And a reason for caring may be… speed!

If a network is deployed with IPv6 in the main network, as I understand T-Mobile USA has now done, then connections from IPv6 clients can do directly to IPv6 servers.  But connections to legacy IPv4 services will need to go through a gateway.  Gateways typically introduce some degree of latency / delay, even at a microscopic level.

If your application works with IPv6 then you won’t need to worry about any v6/v4 gateways with any potential delays.

The reality that these measurements show is that IPv6 is very real today – will your app work over IPv6?

P.S. the goal of this book is to help! :-)

IPv6 Statistics Show Continued Growth – Have You Migrated Your Apps Yet?

IPv6stats–GoogleIt is fun to watch the various IPv6 statistics sites because they continue to show the amazing growth of IPv6 around the world.  The World IPv6 Launch measurements now show Verizon Wireless’ network at 59% IPv6, T-Mobile USA at 43%, AT&T at 25%.  Google’s IPv6 statistics show that traffic into Google web sites globally is about to hit 5%.  And then today Akamai launched new IPv6 trend charts that show IPv6 traffic out of Belgium at 29.2%, from Germany 12% and from Luxembourg and the USA right at 10% with Peru not far behind.

All of this shows that IPv6 deployment is very real!  If you haven’t started migrating your applications so that they will work over IPv6 in addition to IPv4, why not?

Obviously I’d encourage you to buy the book to help understand what you need to do… but you can also view the many IPv6 resources out there on the Internet to learn more!  The key point is that you need to get started NOW!  IPv6 is being deployed globally – will your application work over IPv6?

Ora back to tech school 2014 sale

Want to buy “Migrating Applications to IPv6” at 50% off? (in ebook form) Or any of 8,000 other ebooks and videos?

The folks at O’Reilly are having a “Back to (Tech) School Sale” that is in effect until 5:00pm U.S. Pacific Daylight Time on September 9, 2014. All you need to do is use the discount code “B2S4” when you are checking out.

I would STRONGLY encourage you to buy my book directly through O’Reilly when you can because you get:

  • DRM-free – you can put it on as many devices as you want, and it’s yours.
  • As many formats as you want – EPUB, Mobi, PDF, whatever…
  • Notification of (free) updates – whenever I post updates to the book, you will be notified.

It’s definitely worth it… I’m buying my tech ebooks directly from O’Reilly whenever I can now, simply because of these three points!

Thank you for considering the purchase of this book – and please do let me know if you have any suggestions or feedback to help make it better.

New IPv6 Case Studies Out… But None From Application Developers!

World Ipv6 LaunchAs part of my job at the Internet Society Deploy360 Programme, we recently published a whole new batch of IPv6 case studies during the 2nd “Launchiversary” of World IPv6 Launch. However, if you scan down that list of case studies you’ll see one interesting omission:

There are NO case studies from application developers!

None. Zilch. Zero.

This needs to change!  If you are an application developer and have migrated your application over to work on IPv6, my colleagues and I at the Internet Society would love to write up a bit about what you have done.  PLEASE CONTACT US!

It doesn’t have to be anything gigantic.  It could just be a simple article explaining what you did to make your application work over IPv6.  Or it could be a paragraph linking to a video of a presentation you gave or a set of slides.  We are glad to “interview” you, too, via email or a voice/video call to capture information that we will then write up.  All we need is your interest and willingness to be included.  Please do let us know.

Separately from that, I am still interested in including some case studies in the next version of this “Migrating Applications To IPv6” book that I’m targeting for early 2015.  I have a list of questions that I’d like to ask some of you and include in the book. The benefit to other developers will be that they will get to learn about how to move to IPv6 based on your experience. The benefit to you is that I’ll mention your application and name and give you the added publicity from being in the book.  The benefit to the Internet is that we’ll get more people moving over to IPv6 sooner rather than later!  If you are interested in being considered for the book, please contact me directly!
