Ok, So..... As I read your story, my reaction was simply this, "...sounds good".    There has been so much "fear" and "hype" over this that no one truly seems to care at the stage unless you are a "techie".

Re: Ok, So..... I first started hearing about the upcoming IPv4 crisis more than 20 years ago.

IPv4 depletion When running "efficiently" (read "slightly to severely understaffed") it's too easy to default to an operating mode where you're able to address only the current crisis and maybe the next most imminent one. Of course running out of IPv4 addresses is a problem, but let's let Comcast and Verizon solve it, and we'll adopt their methods the moment the problem becomes critical. -- Brian Santo

Re: IPv4 depletion And of course, if anybody cared we would not be out of IPv4 addresses.

IPv6 ready Service providers in Europe have set the networks for the IoT ready for IPv6.

Re: IPv6 ready This is emblematic of the challenge the US has.  It seems as if the World is leaps and bounds ahead.

Re: IPv4 depletion We have to make sure we create and push the "culture of care".     What we do here, in my view, is part of this--not an easy path for sure.   However, it is a journey worth taking not withstanding all the bumps along the road.

Re: IPv6 ready What happens, Mike, is that if you are a service provider with a vision there is no other alternative than thinking ahead, especially when building new networks.

Something else will pay for the old modems to be eventually swapped out. People have been banging on about IPv6 for the last 20 years but for about the last 18 of those it was likely that the network operator didn't have the hardware & software to support it. It really only got moving in 2011 when IANA exhausted its final /8s.

The deployment glacier is accelerating.

All four mobile operators in the US support it now as do the major wireline residential networks. Android and iOS supports it. More home routers support it.

Avoiding RFC1918 exhaustion, bypassing CGNAT, VoLTE, easier device management, and being ready for the future are driving deployments.

It is sad that it has been such a struggle to do the right thing. It seems almost no one cares about the IP network layer.

Re: IPv6 ready ...and history has truly shown that those who have not embraced the vision have been relegated to the dustbin of history.    Those who are @ the pinnacle now need to guard against this.
