IPv6-based 5G/6G, IoT, Cloud Computing and Blockchain

The new internet based on IPv6 The IPv6 Deployment worldwide is becoming a reality now with some countries achieving more than 60% user penetration with France (70%), Belgium (63%), USA (50%) and India (60%) at the top ranking (http://labs.apnic.net/dists/v6dcc.html) and reaching double digits v6 coverage on Google IPv6 stats. May Autonomous Networks (ASN) reach more than 90% with v6 preferred or v6 capable: (http://labs.apnic.net/ipv6-measurement/Economies/US/). Over 2.5 Billion users are accessing Internet over IPv6 and probably not even knowing it. (http://www.google.com/intl/en/ipv6/statistics.html). If this trend continues, we should achieve 90% by 2025 which would be the inflection point when the full roll-out of IPv6 becomes a strategic plumbing decision of the networks to move to IPv6-Only and start divorcing IPv4 from the Internet. The US Government has already set some dates to move to IPv6-Only by 2025. New topics are more on the lime light such as Cloud Computing, Internet of Things, 5G/6G, … However, these fields are taking IP networking for granted designing them on IPv4/NAT building non-scalable and non-end to end solutions. The IPv6 Forum is driving new initiatives to garner support and create awareness in these areas: www.ipv6forum.org.
