Re: Consumers the key
Agreed, the average home has to sustain multiple user devices that need to connect to the internet, this alone justifies the case for IPv6. Include the torrent of smart devices and M2M connections that in some cases have already (or will be) needing to connect to the internet and the case for multicast over broadcast packets, and the need to remove NAT with a true end-to-end connection, becomes stronger.

Consumers the key
We've been hearing for a long time that this is the year to really, truly get serious about IPv6. Yet outside carriers/ISPs, companies like Facebook or Netflix, and large cloud providers, I don't hear much. Maybe educating customers to ask about IPv6 readiness is the key. Certification programs are one way to make that demand happen.

We're seeing new titles in this digital revolution, new responsibilities, new business models, and major shifts in technology spending.
