The network of StormFiber Deploys IPv6

StormFiber (the biggest domestic fiber operator in Pakistan) has announced today that it has implemented IPv6 for all its broadband fiber customers in 13 major cities. This is a key stage in Pakistan's ISP business that is vital to Pakistan's development of consumers.

IPv6 is the IPv4 address standard of the next generation to replace IPv4, which is still used today by many Internet services. Each mobile phone, computer, and gadget linked to the Internet requires an IP address with a significant amount of people coming online.

IPv4 uses a 32-bit addressing system to support 43 billion fully exhausted addresses. The first IP address scheme, IPv4. As a result, existing service providers utilize techniques such as NAT, which imposes a cost, such that some Internet-based services are not operating.

IPv6 is using a 128-bit method for addressing about 340 trillion addresses. According to the latest reports, IoT devices are predicted to reach around 46 billion in the world this year, up 200% from 2016 and reach over 125 billion by 2030. This year's growth is projected.

ISPs need IPv6 in their network more than before. IPv6 benefits from the auto-setup of network operators and effective routing. It enables customers to remotely access IPv6-enabled devices skipping cloud requirements. Google, Facebook, and Akami's major content partners also use IPv6 to serve content.

"It is our mission to develop major Internet infrastructure components in Pakistan and allow our people to communicate on the Internet in the fastest, safest possible way—with the smallest possible latency," said A Lakhani, CEO of Cyber Internet Services.

"As Pakistan becomes among the world's greatest internet users, it is now crucial for people to be brought to the internet via IPv6 in service provider networks since IPv4 address space has been limited," he says.

"We've noticed unprecedented growth in network traffic in the last years," says Fawad Laher, Managing Director StormFiber. IPv6 is essential for the continued expansion of the internet that brings together devices and people worldwide. This is a significant step in helping IP networks to develop and to improve their performance globally."

Amjad Qasmi, Network Operations, and Engineering General Manager remarked at the event, "The types of equipment enabled by IPv6 may communicate with the same innovation target servers today."

"StormFiber has enabled dual stacks, both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses to support consumers, while maintaining performance, security, and reliability in order to ensure online content and apps are still accessible," she says.

Over the last year, the proportion of cumulative adoption of IPv6 in Pakistan rose from 0,1% to 2,6%, which is largely due to StormFiber's contribution. In contrast, India, due to the broad adoption of mobile carriers in the nation, has the highest IPv6 penetration worldwide at 74 percent.

Malaysia has 47,23% of adoptions, 45% in Saudi Arabia, and 43% in the US. IPv6 is IPv4's expected successor and likely for adoption. To encourage Internet growth in Pakistan, the deployment of ipv6 will need to be wised up by other participants in the sector particularly mobile providers with the highest amount of devices connected to the internet.
