Part of the ‘Three of the best’ series, highlighting the most popular posts from the past 12 months.
This year in IPv6, we learned how implementing dual-stack with no strategy to move to single-stack IPv6 would be a costly decision, we heard some intriguing histories behind global deployment, and we learnt how IPv6-mostly networks can provide the best user experience while using the least amount of IPv4 resources. Here are three of 2022’s best:
- Testing and awareness are key to realizing IPv6 single-stack at NTT DOCOMO— Robbie Mitchell explored how Japan’s NTT DOCOMO has begun rolling out IPv6 single-stack support for selected DOCOMO devices.
- The transition to IPv6: Are we there yet? — Geoff Huston asked whether we will reach the end of this transition with a bang or a whimper.
- Deploying IPv6-mostly access networks — Ondřej Caletka explained how to provide IPv4 connectivity for legacy devices while allowing modern devices to run IPv6-only.
