Despite years of discussions around the imminent shortage in IPv4 addresses, only small percentage of businesses had started planning for the IPv6 transition as of 2012. In fact, some businesses indicated they had no awareness of IPv6 at all. It has long been said that “there is no business case” for deploying IPv6 – companies see it as an expense with no associated increase in revenue. Another reason might be that companies believe they can get by with interim work-arounds.

Singapore is one of a major trading hub and financial centre in the region. It is time for companies in Singapore to lead the IPv6 deployment as the use of IPv6 will soon be a requirement if we are looking to tap into future growth opportunities. Companies that continue to rely solely on IPv4 with no plans to implement IPv6 in the near future risk running into a host of business challenges, from increased costs and limited website functionality, to inhibiting critical growth opportunities in emerging markets and beyond.

The only long-term solution to this shortage, and subsequent business disruptions is adoption of IPv6, which providing a practically unlimited number of addresses. Yet, adopting IPv6 is not simple. It must be addressed using a phased approach with careful validation and testing to avoid disrupting the IPv4 network or introducing vulnerabilities.
