Best Practices to Accelerate IPv6 Migration Testing
With the inevitable exhaustion of IPv4 addresses sometime over the next 1-2 years and after more than a decade of pilots, trials and test runs, IPv6 is finally here.
The “killer app” for IPv6 is the Internet. IP technology is pervasive; it has spread into every conceivable network environment, including Internet backbones, mobile carrier networks, enterprise networks, smart grids, industrial control systems, and cloud computing. Without IPv6, the Internet’s growth will stop next year. IPv6 provides expanded addressing capability, enhanced network security, and mobile routing support, but at the end of the day, what it really does is provide a foundation for the continuing growth of the Internet.
