Visibility, early mover advantage and differentiator in the marketplace
If carrier A offers IPv4 only and carrier B offers both IPv4 and IPv6, other criteria being similar, who would a tier 2 ISP carrier base go for?
40+ of our major customers connect in both IPv4 and IPv6
IPv6 support is becoming a must to win a bid
Of around 60 major RFQ’s for IP transit answered both in 2006 and 2007, about 50 included questions on IPv6 support, roughly half gave points to IPv6 support in their response evaluation and 10 had IPv6 support as mandatory or exclusion factor if not compliant.
Next step: stimulate growth of the IPv6 component of the overall IP traffic.
