[Internet Society Blogs] Rough Guide to IETF 98: All About IPv6

In this post for the Internet Society Rough Guide to IETF 98 , I’m reviewing what’s happening related to IPv6 at IETF 98 in Chicago next week.

IPv6 global adoption rates increased by over 50% last year as pools of IPv4 addresses approached depletion at 4 of the 5 Regional Internet Registries, encouraging more network operators and content providers to actively deploy the protocol. With more large ISPs and mobile operators having announced plans to deploy IPv6 during 2017, and increasing interest in Home Networking and the Internet of Things, IPv6 is at the forefront of standardisation work at the IETF.
