Enterprises Aren't Quite There

A recent survey from Infloblox found that 80 percent of responding IT managers didn't feel educated enough to tackle an IPv6 migration element, and half didn't know which of their network elements supported IPv6 at present. The interest in IPv6 is there, say VARs. But the urgency is not.

For a lot of companies, as I talk to them, until someone makes them do it, there isn't a big rush to do it."
