We are delighted to announce that APNIC are now supporting World IPv6 Launch as a new data source. APNIC recruits random measurements of IPv6 capability and preference through advertisements placed in web sites worldwide. The advert runs specially crafted HTML5/Javascript and measures a range of properties across wired, wireless and cellular networks. Per-Economy and Per-ASN daily totals are calculated through the RIR delegation stats and daily BGP dumps to map origin-as and economy of registration of each tested clients IP addresses. The measurement has run continuously since 2010 and currently collects around 10 million samples per day. Further information is available here.

If you’re a network operator deploying IPv6 and would like to join TELMEX and the other networks that make up the ranks of World IPv6 Launch participants, please register your network for measurement.
