Africa Leads In IPv6 Adoption

timothy posted about 6 years ago | from the rising-tide-all-boats dept.

The Internet 122

Ian Lamont writes "The recent news that China will run out of IPv4 addresses in a few years points to slow adoption of IPv6 in some developed countries. Now it turns out that the largest number of networks displaying new IPv6 address blocks are registered through AfriNIC, which services networks in Africa and the Indian Ocean. While AfriNIC has a smaller installed base than other regions, many countries in Africa are showing rapid growth in terms of online connectivity."

That was precisely my thought, it's not that they need the extra addresses or necessarily think they will in the foreseeable future, but everybody else is going that way and it's cheaper to do it now than to redo things in the future.

That being said, I'm not sure that I'd care to be responsible for saying that at some future time that ipv4 was a mistake for them.

Being first has no benefit (5, Interesting)

Wesley Felter (138342) | about 6 years ago | (#25223491)

You need to enable IPv6 when IPv4 runs out around 2011 so that you can communicate with IPv6-only users. There's no benefit to turning it on early (unless you want to do debugging for vendors). Articles about how some country or another is "ahead" or "behind" in IPv6 are misguided because they're measuring the wrong thing. What is important is not who is running IPv6 today, but who is buying IPv6-capable equipment today so that they can turn it on "for free" in 2011.

Also, the summary propagates the old China IPv4 myth; in reality China will run out of IPv4 at the same time as the rest of the world.

You may not get much of a benefit, other than a static IP address are freedom from NAT. Just make sure to bitch to your ISP about wanting ISP. Oh, and you will probably want the Apple Airport Extreme, if you don't want to have to hack you DSL router, since it is the only one that currently supports IPv6 out of the box.

It was invented by the Carthegians so they could describe the land where they got their slaves (it comes from the name of a mythical Greek king Afros who was famous for capturing slaves). When the term moved to Latin, the Roman Republic made an Africa province. The point of this province was so that they could capture slaves to the south for work in the Republic.

I really don't know what is this fuss about lack of IP numbers.

If we already write them as xxx.yyy.zzz.ttt, why we stop at 255? We could simply go up to 999! Even better, we could use the letters too. Imagine all the possibilities if we take separately lower case and upper case!

And finally, when we exhaust these too, we could move to unicode.

Re:Simple solution (2)

thetartanavenger (1052920) | about 6 years ago | (#25224221)

255 = (2 ^ 8) - 1, or two to the power eight minus one.

It's the maximum number that can be made with 8 bits in binary, and hence eight wires between to different chips at the hardware level. Instead of going to 999, it would have to either be:
(2 ^ 9) - 1 = 511 or
(2 ^ 10) - 1 = 1023
else you'd just be wasting a large section available bandwidth.

Hah. Wrong. Because IPv4 addresses are 32-bit values. IP dot notation is just a fancy way of displaying them. You can't go beyond 255 because you wouldn't have space to store the value (i.e. the value would be > 2^32-1).

Not so simple.

255 is the largest number than can be fit into 8 bits. If we were to allow addresses up to 999 then the entire TCI/IP protocol stack would have to be redesigned to allow for more bits in an IP address. Which would of course cause exactly the same issue the world has with IPv6.
