With the recent exhaustion of IPv4 in North America, Asia, and Europe, and Latin America it’s official: IPv4 is on life-support and is rapidly on its way to becoming a legacy protocol. Meanwhile, IPv6 adoption is surging. More than half of the traffic on the nation’s largest mobile network is over IPv6 while a social networking giant plans to no longer use IPv4 internally within 18 months. No matter where you work, as a networking professional, IPv6 adoption is in your future.
Along with that adoption comes the need for an IPv6 address plan. This guide provides a comprehensive overview of how to create one. In three sections—preparation, design, and maintenance—enterprise IT network architects, engineers, and administrators will learn the current best-practices for designing, deploying, and maintaining an effective IPv6 addressing plan.
