Incognito Software, a global provider of broadband device provisioning, IP address management, bandwidth monitoring, and service activation solutions, released the findings from its recent “IPv6 Readiness” survey, which examines both current and future IPv6 deployment strategies for cable, wireless and wireline operators worldwide. The survey results found that only a small percentage of respondents are IPv6-ready and even fewer are offering IPv6 to their end users, due in large part to challenges operators face with infrastructure upgrades, compatible device support and customer education. Despite these challenges, the survey found that three-quarters of respondents do recognize the importance of IPv6 and have begun planning for it within their organizations.


With the Internet rapidly running out of IPv4 addresses, Incognito Software fielded the “IPv6 Readiness” survey to better understand the industry’s level of preparedness for adopting this new protocol, and its plans for the next two years. To obtain a comprehensive view, the company polled 51 cable, wireless and wireline operators of varying sizes – ranging from regional players with up to 30,000 subscribers to large operators with more than one million subscribers – and included operators across North America, Latin America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia Pacific.
