Re: Big day for IPv6 - 1% native penetration

You can look back on Nanog56 and watch Liviu's presentation regarding implementation in the RCS-RDS network.

Why, you ask?
Because they/we can do it. IPv4 exhaustion is upon us. CGN will break some of the fuctionality of current day networks or rather APPs running on those networks.
Because you have unlimited IPs with increased security...
I could continue with the list of "why"s.

The only "why not" in this entire talk is due to vendors.
Core and distribution vendors have been supporting IPv6 for quite some time now while ACCESS vendors are still lagging behind. Most OS's(Windows,*nix,etc) run IPv6 this days and they have been for a few years now.

PS: although this might sound silly here is a idea...have all the porn sites switch to IPv6 and you'll see a 20-30 fold increase in IPv6 traffic :)).

Just because their users can reach popular content-rich/high-bandwidth endpoint sites via IPv6 *that they can also reach via IPv4* doesn't seem to provide much of an incentive in and of itself for IPv6 deployment.

Obviously, they deployed IPv6 for other reasons, and it would be far more useful to know *why* they deployed it in the 
first place (i.e., as an experiment, because their user base is outstripping their IPv4 allocations, etc.).
