Arjen Holtzer - IPv6 Deployment Monitoring Survey Arjen Holtzer - IPv6 Deployment Monitoring Survey Presentation Transcript

  • IPv6 deployment monitoring Ghent, 14 December 2010 IPv6 Deployment Monitoring Survey
  • The IPv6 Deployment Monitoring Survey
    • Aim is to establish the best possible comprehensive view
    • - present IPv6 penetration
    • - perceived bottlenecks
    • - current future plans
    • Best way to establish this is to ask the Internet providers and users, basically: the RIR communities around the world
    • ARIN carried out such a survey with its members in March 2008, a starting point for the currently proposed survey
  • The IPv6 Deployment Monitoring Survey
    • RIPE NCC and APNIC carried out this same survey in 2009. In 2010, all RIRs participated to the survey:
      • Survey was prepared and carried out by TNO/GNKS in close collaboration with RIPE NCC, APNIC, ARIN, AFRINIC and LACNIC
      • Survey was kept short, and focused on essentials
      • Privacy is guaranteed
    • Results of 2010 will be compared with those of 2009 to get a good picture of progress
  • RIPE NCC respondents
    • In 2010, the RIPE NCC community generated 769 respondents. This is 159 more than 2009 (610 respondents).
    • Participation is largely comparable to last year for most counts (and is therefore not explicitly presented)
  • Does your organization have an IPv6 presence ?
  • More organizations have or consider having an IPv6 allocation and/or assignment
  • More customers use IPv6 connectivity in 2010 (ISP’s only)
  • More ISPs consider promoting IPv6 uptake to their customers in 2010
  • More organizations with IPv6 in production, yet still mostly insignificant
  • More have IPv6 implementation (plans)
  • Attitude, perception and experience with IPv6
  • Why doesn’t your organization consider having an IPv6 allocation cq assignment?
  • Main motivations to consider having IPv6 allocation cq assignment
  • The biggest hurdles, compared
  • The biggest problems with IPv6 in production?
  • Overall Conclusions IPv6 Survey
    • In the RIPE NCC region, experience and preparedness with IPv6 has grown a lot over the last year, yet real use has not grown that much, yet.
    • Vendors, gear up! ISPs are ready to go and need good equipment.
    • Next year: another global survey to monitor changes
  • IPv6 deployment monitoring Ghent, 14 December 2010 IPv6 Technical bottleneck analysis
  • IPv6 Technical bottleneck analysis: Goals & work plan
    • What are currently the most significant technical issues blocking or slowing down IPv6 adoption?
      • E.g. availability of hardware and software
      • E.g. standardization, architectural issues, replacement strategies etc.
    • Include the whole value chain
    • Preliminary results based on 16 one-hour interviews with network architects, product specialists and managers related to:
      • ISPs with their own network infrastructure (8)
      • vendors (4)
      • corporate users (3)
      • content providers (1)
    • Thanks to interviewees for their cooperation – much appreciated!
  • Question: possible IPv6 impact on the Value Chain Internal network External network Operating System Communi- cation software Service website Specific internet service or platform routers, proxies, DMZ, … Residential Gateway core network access network network OAM network provisioning migration techniques Fiber Cable 3G DSL MS, Apple, Linux, … other IP dependent applications Browsers VoIP, chat, … www mail VoIP IPTV p2p …
  • Overview of bottlenecks from the interviews (1)
    • Communication software
      • Mobile phones, software apps (fixed & mobile)
    • Operating System
      • In general ok (except for legacy)
    • Internal Network
      • availability of RG’s, large non-IPv6 installed base
      • Corporate applications
      • IPv6 in corporate networks is not top priority
  • Overview of bottlenecks from the interviews (2)
    • External Network
      • Inhouse built applications for monitoring and provisioning
      • BNG, DSLAM and RG IPv6 feature support and maturity
      • Is your current platform upgradable?
      • replacement strategy for DSLAM’s, CMTS’s
        •  Vendors and ISP’s need each other!
    • Specific internet service or platform and service website
      • Varied landscape of services. Really depends on the company that builds the service
      • Load balancers
  • Main findings
    • Feature parity: IPv4 support is still much more widespread than IPv6
    • Vendors need ISP’s to do operational testing to mature their products
      • still, product-specific bugs are regularly encountered
    • Application landscape is huge
    • IPv6 deployment is possible, but it’s not ‘plug-and-play’ enough yet
    • Focus mainly on internet services: no priority for triple play over IPv6
    Tests, trials & pilots are a MUST for 2011 Pool of early-adopters large enough? Next year: more specific interviews/survey
