ASEAN Hotspots

It’s interesting to note that this week has heard official statements from Vietnam and Malaysia on their plans for migrating to IPv6. As… Continue

No IPv6 access to Google? Blame your ISP

In their effort to prepare for, and move to IPv6 Google has started offering IPv6 connectivity to www.google.com, but there is a catch. In order to get an IPv6 address when querying Google your ISP has to be onboard and promise to help get IPv6 working in case people have problems accessing the Google website. If they agree to work with Google on making sure IPv6 works as well as IPv4 then the queries from that network will return both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses. This is a great step in right… Continue

How much can I get for my IPv4 address?

There seem to be a common view, one example found here, that even if the IPv4 pool will run in about two years there will be plenty addresses available from space that isn’t actually being used today. There might be some truth in this perception but it won’t provide an easy fix to continue using IPv4. Unused assigned address will be used, that I think this is pretty clear, and the… Continue

Teredo, the hidden IPv6 champion

There has been some interesting work done lately in regards to getting a better understanding about the status of the IPv6 deployments. The most famous on is probably Google’s measurement of how many nodes actually could access IPv6 content. This showed that 6to4 is the dominating technology. But looking at the data presented by… Continue

IPv6 back in fashion at the IETF

Having been following IPv6 at the IETF meetings for a couple of years it is clear that IPv6 now is back as a hot topic after having been dormant for a while. Just a year or so ago it seemed IPv6 was becoming an integrated part in daily routine and all the IPv6 specific work was done, but now it has changed. All the IPv6 related meetings are packed with people and there are plenty new things that have been brought to the table. It seems that the community has suddenly come to realise that there… Continue

IPv6 Starlight

Having recently returned from my business trip I was able to spend a little more time catching up. I read Iljitsch van Beijnum’s article yesterday somewhat satisfied with one of the conclusions - IPv6 traffic is 100 times higher than the Arbor Networks’ estimate a few months ago. Being an IPv6 advocate, a quarter of a percent of traffic being IPv6 still seems painfully… Continue

Simple and Safe in Hong Kong

The Hong Kong government, like many governments around the world, are currently considering their options for moving to IPv6. The OGCIO’s first stop was to consult David Chung of Cyberport to learn from their experience. I met David two years ago when Cyberport launched one of the first IPv6 operating networks (… Continue

800 Chinese Days

I think there is something to be said for government intervention in free markets. Perhaps that’s pretty obvious given the current economic crisis but I’ve always held that view. Most of my American friends would still disagree with the principle – they’ve been calling me a socialist ever since I returned to Canada 11 years ago and you know what... I don’t care. Perhaps it is the Canadian in me but I believe that left to our own devices certain parts of our society would unnecessarily suffer.… Continue
