 Image - IPv6 In Action  The “IPv6 In Action” project has audited the public’s perception and knowledge level of IPv6 and found that there is a lack of preparation among individual and business users. More than 90 percent of respondents have no plans in place to apply IPv6. Over 20% of those who have not done preparation claimed that they are not familiar with the know-how of doing so.With this in mind, the Internet Society Hong Kong has launched “All about IPv6”, an informative guide with essential information about IPv6 as well as specific steps on how to enable it in home and business networks, targeting the general public and SMEs.Please click here to view the “All about IPv6” consumer guide.

IPv4 將耗盡 企業宜及早升級 (Hong Kong Economic Times)

Jun 6, 2012

能上網的電子裝置均需 IP 地址,移動通訊大熱,需求隨即大增。 近年科技界已警告,沿用的 IPv4 地址快耗盡,需轉用新的 IPv 6 地址。香港互聯網協會創會主席莫乃光指:「 礙於網絡服務供應商對提供 IPv6 服務抱觀望態度, 影響企業的積極性。」

去年 4 月中,亞太區的 IPv4 地址已派完,即是說, 現時網絡供應商、數據中心手上的地址用完就無法再補充。 業界預計,歐洲及中東地區的 IPv4 地址也將於今年 7 月派完, 明年中就輪到北美。「基於互聯網在亞太區發展較遲,獲分配的 IP v4 地址本已不及北美多,而中、印近年發展迅速,對 IP 地址的需 求激增,令亞太區的 IPv4 地址最快派完。」由於不能一刀切, 估計 IPv4 及 IPv6 將有機會並存 10 至 15 年。
