Version 6 of the IP address specification (IPv6) was first proposed as a draft in 1994 and published in 1995. The draft was accepted as a standard in 1998.
The IPv6 address space is huge, with 340 undecillion addresses. This is roughly 10 billion times larger than the IPv4 address space, which itself has over 4 billion IP addresses. The reason the comparison is important is that while it is possible to pull information about every IPv4 address on a daily basis, it is not possible to do this for the allocated IPv6 address space. It is simply too large. This creates a set of decisioning data challenges for IPv6 geolocation that do not exist for IPv4.
To address this issue, Neustar utilizes additional sources of data that result from our probing the Internet. This data, when ingested into our patented machine learning system, is evaluated by a set of rules that compares and weighs data that correlates, producing a single city, state, country answer.
Yes, Neustar began collecting IPv6 address allocation information in 2015 and released our first beta IPv6 data to customers in 2017. We currently have coverage of over 99% of the allocated IPv6 address space and are shipping high quality production data to all subscribed customers.
IPv6 data is provided at no additional charge as part of an IP GeoPoint subscription and is accessible via API, private server or additional data file.
Consult your Neustar sales representative for more information on IPv6.
