IPv6 and the Internet of Things

Blue and White Text Displaying The Internet of Things

Which came first, the growth in IPv6 or the Internet of Things (IoT)?

The answer is, “Yes.” The Internet of Things is driving IPv6 adoption, and IPv6 is enabling growth in the Internet of Things.

The point is, in any case, that the growth of either will facilitate and increase the growth of the other. And IPv6 use is growing. Google's continuously updated graph of IPv6 access shows the “hockey stick” growth that is occurring with IPv6. This growth is driven, in part, by mobile devices which are the leading edge of the Internet of Things.
