How will IPv6 Impact your Network?

Your customers will be using IPv6 addresses this year. Is your network prepared to "speak" IPv6? To stay connected with customers, your network must be able to communicate with either IPv4 or IPv6 hosts/users.

This paper will help you prepare your network for the transition.

As this paper from AT&T points out, your transition from IPv4 to IPv6 will first affect your network in the public Internet segment. You’ll want new IPv6-only devices, for example, to be able to access your Web site and mail servers, particularly if you run e-commerce from your site. AT&T advocates primarily using the standard dual-stack IP addressing approach to upgrading for IP interoperability; tunneling is another option, and situations where one or the other is most appropriate are discussed. Also, the paper examines the imminent demise of Network Address Translation (NAT), which has long conserved IPv4 addresses behind corporate firewalls and has offered internal nodes a layer of protection against direct attacks from the Internet.
