Diffusion and Adoption of IPv6 in the United States
Source: Indiana University
What are the best case, current projection and reasonably optimistic cases for the adoption of the IPv6 protocol? This paper will analyze IPv6 routes from the ARIN Project to quantify the current adoption rate in order to offer three distinct views of three possible paths. The data source consists of three hourly points from the last 60 months of IPv6 route records. This data will then be compiled and plotted on three distinct dissemination curves to determine three possible adoption timelines. This paper will also discuss potential gains in security from adoption of the IPv6 protocol, along with a background discussion of analysis methods and the use of dissemination curves as a means of reporting findings.
