Transparency with IPv4 Deployments
A dual-stack approach to IPv6 enables ACE to support all deployment
models (NAT, Bridge Mode) with minimal loss of performance for IPv4
traffic.

IPv6 Adoption – Core and Datacenter
4.4% of the AS on internet support IPv6
routes
1.2% of the Web Server on internet have
IPv6 services
4.4% is not uniform across all AS.
18% of Transit AS support IPv6
2.3% of Origin AS support IPv6

Based on incoming IPv6 address
prefix, we can deduce that 31% of
clients travelled over native IPv6
network. 66% of clients came over
IPv4 through a tunneling technology
deployed at ISP.
