Developing an IP Address Usage Measurement Index: The Case of South Korea


Background/Objectives: IPv6 adoption index of existing has a limit to survey. Also, the index can’t know actual usage because they measure readiness. Therefore, we improved the index to IPv6 usage measurement. Methods/Statistical Analysis: The usage measurement methods of IPv6 and case studies in domestic and international were examined. Then using the Delphi method, evaluation and verification of previous IPv6 measurement indices were conducted. Findings: The final improved IPv6 usage measurement index is categorized by ‘USER’ and ‘CONTENTS’. The USER indices are indices to measure terminals that are actually using IPv6. The CONTENTS indices are an index that measures whether content service providers support IPv6 for actual use. Meanwhile, infrastructure hierarchy can be the most appropriate measurement points to determine the current state of IPv6 during communication. But accurate measurement is currently not possible in terms of traffic flow. So, the index were deleted. Application/Improvements: There is a need to develop an accurate measurement of IoT terminal, mobile application and PC software. Also, developing method to the traffic measurement in infrastructure is needed.
