BEIJING, Nov. 29, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Recently, BII-Global IPv6 Testing Center (www.ipv6ready.org.cn) released the 2017 IPv6 Support Report, providing a test, update and analysis of the support for IPv6 network devices, terminals, applications and websites worldwide. The report shows that the entire industry is ready for full access to IPv6, with support for network devices, terminal products and various applications. Among them, the network devices and terminal products gained the highest IPv6 support. There are 2137 types/series of network devices in the world that have passed the IPv6 Ready Logo Certification and over 90% of the terminal operating systems support IPv6. In addition, a small number of basic applications have been able to access IPv6 and can meet the basic needs. At present, the IPv6 support rate of the top 50 websites of Alexa rankings is 42%, and there is only one website in China among the top 50 supporting stable IPv6 access.
Network devices have extremely high IPv6 support and have been ready for full access
With the rapid deployment of IPv6 in the world, mainstream network device manufacturers have launched a large number of IPv6 products in recent years, and they are rich in product types and basically cover the original IPv4 products (including routers, switches, access servers, firewalls, VPN gateways and domain name servers, etc.), which can meet the needs of commercial deployment.
According to IPv6 Ready Logo testing and certification data, a total of 2137 types/series of devices in the world passed the IPv6 Ready Logo Phase-2 certification as of October 2017 and have been steadily increasing. Among those devices obtaining the IPv6 Ready Logo, China’s routers, switches, firewalls and gateways are far ahead of other types of devices. Compared with other network device powers such as the United States, South Korea and Japan, China has a larger number of routers, switches, security devices and other devices (more than 70%), while is has relatively less applications for other device types, especially for terminal devices.
Terminal devices basically support IPv6, leaving home gateway the last checkpoint hindering the development
A company who can take the lead in making a difference in IPv6 will be able to occupy a favorable position in future competition. From the hardware point of view, the terminal products such as mobile phones and PCs launched in the past two or three years can basically fully support IPv6. However, the operating system
