I think the place you're going to see IPv6 adoption is
government networks - I've seen several RFPs from
various government offices which are requiring some
degree of IPv6 capability. This is going to drive the
various large carriers who have these governments as
customers to implement a generically working IPv6
Nearly every customer of mine has required IPv6 in their RFPs for over a
year, but not a single one has turned it on even for testing.
Once it's a product, I think you'll see some people
You mean once Windows has it enabled by default, people will start using it.
IMHO, the only chance IPv6 has of widespread US deployment is if it can
happen without end users knowing they're using IPv6.
Unfortunately vendor C still ships nearly all of its L3 switches and core
routers with forwarding engines that don't grok IPv6 packets, even if said
vendor has supported IPv6 in software for several years now.
