June 6th 2014 - IPv6 in Mobile has come on a lot in the last couple of years. The stand out performers are Verizon Wireless and T-Mobile USA. 51% and 27% of the IP traffic on their respective networks is now IPv6. The situation with the UEs improved greatly late last year when Android 4.4 began activating the RFC6877 clat NAT46 function when the PDP/PDN bearer comes up with IPv6 only. At present rates it will only take 4-years to turn-over all smartphones to models that are fully capable of connecting to the new as well as the old IPv4 Internet.

Cameron Byrne from T-Mobile US co-authored RFC6877 and gave an excellent presentation this month on it at Nanog

I'm testing IPv6 in the Meteor mobile network and it has been remarkably trouble free, so proceeding to next stage of activating it in the production packet core for more testing.
