As announced last year, after the 2010 survey results were presented, 
GNKS Consult is working with the RIPE NCC and NRO to repeat the global 
2010 survey on the current and future use of IPv6.

The IPv6 Deployment Monitoring Survey is now online, and we encourage 
all members of the ARIN community to participate. The survey is 
available at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/GlobalIPv6survey2011.

The purpose of the survey is to develop a better understanding of where 
the community is moving, and what can be done to ensure the Internet 
community is ready for the widespread adoption of IPv6. There has been 
little change to the survey since it was carried out in 2009 (only RIPE 
and APNIC) and 2010 (global), which will make comparison of progress 
possible. The results of previous surveys showed that community 
participation does contribute to a better understanding: more than 90% 
of last year's over 1600 respondents indicated that they were interested 
in participating again in 2011.

We encourage all organizations to participate in this survey, which we 
hope will establish a comprehensive view of present IPv6 penetration and 
future plans for IPv6 deployment. The survey is composed of 23 questions 
and can be completed in about 15 minutes. For those without IPv6 
allocations or assignments, or who have not yet deployed IPv6, the 
questions will be fewer in number.

Results of the IPv6 Deployment Monitoring Survey will be presented and 
discussed widely, with the support of your RIR. Results for the 2010 
Global IPv6 Deployment Monitoring Survey 2010 can be found at


There is also a comparison report prepared for RIPE NCC that looks at 
changes between the 2010 global survey and the 2009 IPv6 Deployment 
Monitoring Survey that only took place in the RIPE NCC and APNIC 
regions. This can be found at:


Results of the 2009 survey, including a comparison of RIPE and APNIC 
regional results, can be found 
at http://ripe59.ripe.net/presentations/botterman-v6-survey.pdf.

Please provide your name and contact information on the survey form if 
you wish to receive the draft survey analysis when it is completed. 
Please also indicate whether you are willing to share additional data 
with the TNO and GNKS Consult IPv6 Deployment Monitoring team.

The survey will close on 31 July 2011. On behalf of ARIN and GNKS 
Consulting, we thank you for your time and interest in completing this 
survey. If you have any questions concerning the survey, please send an 
email to info at gnksconsult.com.
