IPv6 in 2020
By Michiel van der Vlist, 2:280/5555
Another year has passed. When we compare the statistics as published
by the end of 2019 with those of today, we see that IPv6 in Fidonet
has grown again. From 86 to 93 nodes.

2011 2012 2013 2014 2015 2016 2017 2018 2019 2020 2021
When we look at the past decade we see that IPv6 in Fidonet grew
from zero to almost a hundred . Nearly 10% of the listed Fido nodes.
The growth went from exponential in the first five years to almost
lineair since 2015. Until the end of 2015, the number almost doubled
every year. In 2016 we had a mere net increase of 12 nodes. I say
"net" because in 2016, not only did we see new IPv6 nodes, we also
saw nodes disappear from the list. Some stopped supporting IPv6, some
left Fidonet altogether. This trend continued in 2017-2020. A net
increase of 13 nodes in 2017, 14 in 2018, 8 in 2019 and 7 in 2020.
Statistics on small numbers is always tricky, but we can not deny
the impression that sinds two years the rate of net increase appears
to be dropping. Had the lineair growth that started in 2015
continued, we would have reached 100 last year. As it is it will take
another year and if the rate of increase drops further it may take
even longer. Or forever...
Other than that, 2020 was not all that eventfull regarding IPv6. Not
for Fidonet en not for the Internet in general. We saw steady growth
but we can't say that IPv6 is the dominant protocol yet.
In order not to have to tell the same story over and over again, I
sometimes refer people to Fidonews articles I wrote in the past.
Since there seems to be no easely available searcheable archive, I
made a list of these articles. I hope I did not miss any.
