UPC to start IPv6 rollout later than originally scheduled

Tuesday 27 November 2012 | 09:35 CET | News
Dutch cable operator UPC will start working on the new Ipv6 internet protocol in mid next year, six months later than originally planned. According to the cable provider, parent company Liberty Global has enough IPv4 addresses available to meet the demand for new IP addresses. UPC originally wanted to begin distributing Ipv6 addresses this year. The last IPv4 addresses will be distributed this year. UPC said it will closely follow developments surrounding IPv6. If, for instance, customers are not able to reach certain websites because of its IPv6 address, then rollout may be accelerated.

Their network architects must be embarrassed at the excuse of waiting for the very last IPv4 address to run out before starting to deploy IPv6. If they are like most ISPs the real explanation is they haven't put enough work into preparing their network and OSS systems yet.
