In the Asia Pacific region, we’ve seen steady and rapid adoption rates in Australia, India, Taiwan, Viet Nam and New Zealand following large-scale deployments by major providers. Learn more about successful IPv6 deployments in the region.

Here are the top three posts on IPv6 in 2018:

  1. Why I killed our IPv6 project — Although IPv6 did not offer a certain gaming company any current benefits or advantages over its competitors, the act of deploying it did allow them to take stock of and clean up their network architecture.
  2. How bad is IPv4 address exhaustion? — Ok, so not necessarily an IPv6 post. But a relevant reminder from APNIC’s Director General as to the cause and need for IPv6.
  3. Reducing the complexity of 5G networks using Segment Routing IPv6 — The era of 5G is fast approaching and offers a great opportunity to take advantage of IPv6 technology, writes Satoru Matsushima.
