IP (Internet Protocol) version 6 (IPv6) was standardised in 1998 to address the expected runout of IP version 4 (IPv4) addresses. However, the transition from IPv4 to IPv6 has been very slow in many countries. We investigate the state of IPv6 deployment in Australian and Chinese organisations based on a survey of organisations’ IT staff. Compared to earlier studies, IPv6 deployment has advanced markedly, but it is still years away for a significant portion of organisations. We provide insights into the deployment problems, arguments for deploying IPv6, and how to speed up the transition, which are relevant for many countries.
