Global IPv6 Survey

APNIC invites you to participate in the 2011 Global IPv6 Survey.

As announced last year, after the 2010 IPv6 survey results were presented, GNKS Consult is working with the RIPE NCC and the NRO to repeat the global 2010 survey on the current and future use of IPv6.

The IPv6 Deployment Monitoring Survey is now online, and we encourage all members of the APNIC community to participate.

The purpose of the survey is to develop a better understanding of where the community is moving, and what can be done to ensure the Internet community is ready for the widespread adoption of IPv6. There has been little change to the survey since it was carried out in 2009 (only RIPE and APNIC) and 2010 (global), which will make comparison of progress possible. The results of previous surveys showed that community participation does contribute to a better understanding: more than 90% of last year's over 1600 respondents indicated that they were interested in participating again in 2011.

We encourage all organizations to participate in this survey, which we hope will establish a comprehensive view of present IPv6 penetration and future plans for IPv6 deployment. The survey is composed of 23 questions and can be completed in about 15 minutes. For those without IPv6 allocations or assignments, or who have not yet deployed IPv6, the questions will be fewer in number.

Results of the IPv6 Deployment Monitoring Survey will be presented and discussed widely, with the support of your RIR.

There is also a comparison report prepared for the RIPE NCC that looks at changes between the 2010 global survey and the 2009 IPv6 Deployment Monitoring Survey that only took place in the RIPE NCC and APNIC regions.

You can view the results of the 2009 survey, including a comparison of the RIPE and APNIC regional results.

Please provide your name and contact information on the survey form if you wish to receive the draft survey analysis when it is completed. Please also indicate whether you are willing to share additional data with the TNO and GNKS Consult IPv6 Deployment Monitoring team.

The survey will close on 31 July 2011. On behalf of APNIC and GNKS Consulting, we thank you for your time and interest in completing this survey.
