In this item, I had raised questions about IPv6 in light of new Internet technologies and architectures. There have been two items recently that speak to the question of IPv6. First, Geoff Huston examines the fate of IPv6 in this thoughtful article. A few days later, this paper came to my attention, in which the Indian regulator (TRAI) makes a recommendation that India transition to IPv6. Japan and Europe have been leaders in the past few years in encouraging the adoption of IPv6, though this might be in part to gain some advantage in the competition these countries face from the US.
Do you think that IPv6 is destined for stardom or extinction? Would you convert?
