Will We See IPv6-Enabled Consumer Devices at CES This Week?

Dan York

What kind of IPv6 support will we see in consumer devices at the massive Consumer Electronics Show (CES) happening in Las Vegas this week? The show is already underway and much of the tech media is already writing in breathless prose about the latest tablets, notebooks and zillions of other consumer devices making their debut at CES.

While the bright-shiny-object-chasing side of me definitely notices those articles, my own interest is on a deeper and far more technical level:

how many consumer devices currently support IPv6?

As large ISPs look at making IPv6 available to residences, will the devices and software customers use in the home actually work with an IPv6 network?

I'm getting on a plane tomorrow morning to head out to CES and on Thursday and Friday I'll be walking the show floor on a quest for IPv6-enabled vendors. A couple of vendors have already reached out to me, both from the voice-over-IP / telecommunications industry, which is good to see.

IF YOU ARE AT CES AND YOUR PRODUCT/SERVICE SUPPORTS IPv6, I'd definitely like to be in contact with you.

I'm looking forward to doing some video interviews and writing some articles here at CircleID about whatever level of IPv6 support (or not) I find at the event.

P.S. I'll note, too, that on Saturday, the Internet Society team of which I am a part will be participating in a workshop with consumer electronics vendors about IPv6. This workshop is part of the International Conference on Consumer Electronics (ICCE).
