The 4th Global IPv6 Deployment Monitoring Survey is Open Now

As in previous years, the Number Resource Organization (NRO) invites you to participate in the 4th consecutive Global IPv6 Deployment Monitoring Survey on the current and future use of IPv6.

The IPv6 Deployment Monitoring Survey is now online, and we encourage all members of our community to participate:

The purpose of the survey is to better understand where the Internet community is going, and what can be done to ensure it is ready for the widespread adoption of IPv6. We hope this survey will establish a comprehensive view of current IPv6 penetration and future deployment plans for IPv6.

This year’s survey is similar to those conducted in previous years (2010, 2011 and 2012), and will enable a comparison of progress. What is clear is that community participation does contribute to a better understanding of how IPv6 is being used. In 2012, 91% of the over 1,500 respondents indicated that they were interested in participating again in the 2013 survey.

This survey has a maximum of 30 questions and will take about 20 minutes to complete. For those without IPv6 allocations or assignments, or have not yet deployed IPv6, the questions will be fewer in number.

The survey will be open for a month and will close on 31 July 2013. Results of the IPv6 Deployment Monitoring Survey will be presented and discussed widely, with the support of your Regional Internet Registry (RIR).

We appreciate your time and interest in completing this survey. If you have any questions concerning the survey, please send an email to
