This study covers the state of the IPv4 to IPv6 transition testing market, examining drivers and restraints for growth, end-user trends and geographical trends. Forecasts are provided for regional market growth. In addition, an analysis of the competitive situation including vendors' market shares is performed. The base year is 2011, with forecasts running through 2018. Detailed analysis is included for four geographic regions: North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Rest of World.
•The total Internet Protocol Version 4 (IPv4) to Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6) transition testing market generated revenue of $xx.x million in 2011, and it is expected to reach $xx.x million by 2018. •Security and interoperability are two main factors driving the need for IPv6 testing before deployment. •IPv6 has been widely accepted as the next-generation IP network. Compared with IPv4, IPv6 has the potential to offer a much more secure Internet. •While some IPv6 elements, such as firewalls and Internet Protocol Security (IPSec), are ready to be deployed, other elements, such as Virtual Private Network (VPN), are still in the prototype stage. •The North America and Asia-Pacific regions are expected to lead the way in IPv6 deployment. The penetration of IPv6 in Europe is likely to increase from 2012 onward because of strong support from the European Commission and IPv6 task forces. •Service providers and governments will continue to be the two main end-user groups investing in IPv6 test solutions.
