IPv6 monitoring

IPv6 Deployment Monitoring


In Europe we will soon be running out of IPv4 addresses. To keep extending the possibilities of the Internet, IPv6 has been created. The European Commission (EC) has adopted an Action Plan to support the deployment of IPv6.  A consortium of TNO and GNKS Consult are doing IPv6 deployment research for the EC through metrics analyses, questionnaires and live traffic measurements in order to determine the number of IPv6 enabled users in Europe in the period 2009 — 2010.

The objectives of this project are to further develop a metric to measure IPv6 deployment, to conduct IPv6 measurements in Europe, to assess the global deployment, quality and security of current IPv6 products and services, and to disseminate the results.


Both TNO (The Netherlands Organization for Applied Scientific Research, http://www.tno.nl/) and GNKS Consult (Global Networked Knowledge Society, http://www.gnksconsult.com/site/index.php) have strong expertise in research projects. They bring together valuable experience in the field of: information society policy, information security, internet governance, connectivity solutions and internet R&D.
