IPv6 Measurement and Mapping
MetadataShow full item record
Description: In collaboration with UCSD, we have undertaken three transformative research tasks to explore the evolution of IPv6 deployment: (1) providing a comprehensive view of the IPv6 topology from core to edge; (2) correlating the rate of IPv6 deployment with socioeconomic parameters; and (3) conducting quantitative assessment of IPv6 performance, including the impact of transition technologies and traffic characteristics. A primary result from this project is to improve the fidelity, scope, and usability of IPv6 measurement technology. We have also built tools to measure the characteristics of IPv6 adoption at the edge and compare characteristics of IPv4 and IPv6 connectivity. The resulting data sets serve as input to our work in correlating these observations with other technical and socioeconomic data: address allocation, available geographic and traffic data, ISP organizational structure (commercial, government, educational), and political/regulatory factors influencing IPv6 deployment. Finally, we are working to improve the state of quantitative modeling of the IPv6 transition by gathering rigorous empirical data on the extent and effectiveness of converter technologies, investigating prevailing concerns over IPv6 performance and path inflation, and analyzing actual IPv6 traffic workloads on a major U.S. backbone.
