Details impact of event on IPv6 and how IPv6 is used in consumer networks today
Fremont, CA, June 10, 2011 – Procera Networks, Inc. ("Procera") (NYSE Amex: PKT), the intelligent policy enforcement company, published a World IPv6 Day report. The report details on how IPv6 traffic was being used in consumer broadband networks before World IPv6 Day, and the impact that the event had on IPv6 consumer networks, both from a traffic volume perspective, but also on the applications that were used during the event.
"Since we released our IPv6 support earlier this year, we have been anxiously awaiting World IPv6 Day to see if IPv6 traffic would become more commonly used on broadband networks”, said Alexander Havang, CTO of Procera. “The trends we observed are promising for the industry, but still have a long way to go for mass market adoption."
Some observations from the report include:
- World IPv6 day did not spike the total volume of IPv6 traffic overall, but more native IPv6 traffic was active on consumer broadband networks
- Native IPv6 users were most likely to browse the web or consume streaming video
- Google properties experienced the most traffic on consumer broadband networks, driven mainly by streaming video traffic
- Netflix over IPv6 made appearances across North America
- Teredo traffic still overwhelms native IPv6 on consumer broadband networks
- Peer-to-Peer File sharing is still the most common application running on IPv6 (using Teredo tunnelling)
