Even though IPv6 adoption is dangerously slow, we will see adoption eventually. There are three main sections of the Internet that need to handle IPv6. The Internet networking equipment like routers, proxies and firewalls, and services like DNS and routing need to support IPv6 so that clients can talk to servers that users are connecting to from giants like Google and Amazon to smaller web, email and other hosts. Then, there are the enterprise and consumer products that will connect to Internet hosts. The question remains how to deliver IPv6 services in a non-disruptive manner to consumers in homes, small businesses and enterprises, all of whom can’t control either the content being provided or the consumers visiting that content.
