Akamai to present real-time view of IPv6 traffic delivered on its network during IPv6 day
Posted on 8-Jun-2011 03:35. | Tags Filed under: News.

Akamai Technologies, Inc. it is planning to provide a real-time data visualization of IPv6 Web traffic served from its global platform during "World IPv6 Day" on June 8th. To be available at, the Akamai visualization is designed to show the pattern of traffic served during the 24-hour period (from midnight to midnight Greenwich Mean Time).

With a rapidly growing shortage in available IPv4 addresses, World IPv6 Day serves as a reminder that online businesses must act quickly to transition to IPv6 or risk increased costs and limited functionality for Internet users around the globe.

Akamai has joined the Internet Society, and other Internet businesses, to encourage preparation and planning for the transition to IPv6. Akamai's participation includes IPv6-enabling, as well as supporting over 30 customers from around the globe that have opted in to Akamai's IPv6 technology platform.

"Akamai's role in the deployment of IPv6 is critical to its customers," said Mark Townsley, Cisco Distinguished Engineer and former Internet Area Director for the IETF. "Online for over 25 years, is one of the more sophisticated websites Akamai serves today. Cisco and Akamai worked closely to tailor a solution that met our needs for World IPv6 Day, and we are confident that the largest global test-drive of IPv6 ever performed will be an important milestone towards the adoption of IPv6 worldwide."

"Akamai is committed to helping our customers and network partners with a smooth transition to IPv6," said Andy Champagne, vice president of Engineering at Akamai. "IPv6 adoption is still in its beginning stages, but we believe that early planning and testing are critical for all Internet businesses. Our data visualization tool is designed to serve as a representative view into the early adoption of this protocol."

Akamai will be opening up its IPv6 offerings to all interested customers over the course of the coming year. Networks with native IPv6 are invited to speak with Akamai to have IPv6 configured in their locations.
