I was re-reading over a document at TechLiberty when I came across this: Does the DIA Internet Filter support IPv6? No. This makes me think that not only will this require either an upgrade (software or hardware), potentially costing the tax payer more money but it could be a contributing factor to the delay of the IPv6 rollout at NZ ISPs.

Thoughts?

Only for ISP's using it, The big guys use it but I dont think alot of others do




Most problems are the result of previous solutions...

Beccara: Only for ISP's using it, The big guys use it but I dont think alot of others do

With that in mind lets take a moment to think about all of the ISPs offerring IPv6...

I'm not suggesting any conspiracy rather that this could likely be the reason.

johnr: Upgrading of Core Hardware to support IPV6 maybe?

I was wondering if it was a factor in the rollout of IPv6?

Upgrading core hardware?  Yes.  DIA internet filter?  No.

Core hardware is expensive.  A Cisco switch can set you back tens of thousands of dollars.  A Juniper switch even more.

Aren't we due to run out of IPV4 addresses sometime "Really Soon Now" ((c)1988 The Tramiel Brothers)? Wouldn't that make this "very important"?

The top level regional authorities have assigned pretty much all the usable ipv4 space but large hosts and ISP's are in no danger of running out as many of them have massive allocations which they aren't using all of.

The issue is for new players is that they'll start at a disadvantage and have to rent ipv4 addresses off incumbents to get started, eventually you may get some sites/content only reachable via ipv6 but not soon.

ISP's like Telecom and Telstraclear will take their usual leisurely place, no hurry no worry for them aka bean counters say yeah nah...

Smaller more innovative ISP's already have working ipv6, eg: Snap and Xnet in NZ... Internode in Aussie.
