Over the past few years, the growth of IPv6 has increased greatly. Already, there is about 100,000 times more space advertised on IPv6 as on IPv4. Well, that’s not exactly correct, since we “count” addresses differently.
As of today, there are around 202,926,147,961,349 so-called “/64’s” being advertised on IPv6, vs 2,469,125,216 IPv4 addresses. The “/64’s” are the typical “end user” address space being advertised – each of which contains 18,446,744,073,709,551,616 IP addresses!
That means that, today, there are 1,516,053,820,620,299,507,341,432 times more addresses announced on IPv6 than IPv4.
IPv6 is here, ready and being used. What’s your plan for IPv6 migration?
