Earlier this week Akamai, the world’s largest content distribution network (CDN), which supplies content for thousands of websites announced that they will be launching their IPv6 services in April. This is another great milestone in IPv6 deployment for the content side of the transaction. Still missing and moving much slower is the access side of the network, the broadband providers. While some providers such as Comcast and Time Warner have announced trials and some limited production services ,their roll outs are still very limited. Until the access networks have millions of IPv6 enabled subscribers, the total amount of IPv6 traffic will be very small.
