A recently launched software upgrade from Arris has enabled IPv6 support for more than 4mln of its wireless gateways currently deployed across the Comcast broadband network, the vendor said. That is expected to enable Comcast to transition to and deploy IPv6 incrementally, Comcast said in a blog post

More than 25% of Comcast’s Xfinity Internet subs are provisioned with native dual stack broadband Internet service and IPv6 support has been implemented to more than 75% of the MSO’s broadband network. The goal is to be 100% IPv6 by early next year. Comcast’s initiative is the world’s largest IPv6 deployment as measured by theInternet Society’ s World IPv6 Launch Measurements using data from Google, Facebook, Yahoo and Akamai.

Comcast has also been working closely with Cisco to ready their uBR10000 Cable Modem Termination System (CMTS), which has helped the expanded deployment of IPv6 support across Comcast’s broadband network.
