IP Version 6 Transitions Mechanisms
sponsored by Global Knowledge

Today businesses are in the midst of transitioning from IP version 4 to IP version 6. This is not a process that happens overnight - there is almost always a period of migration and/or coexistence when installing new components into an infrastructure. This is lead to the development of mechanisms designed to phase the protocol into existing networks.

What are these various mechanisms? How do each of them work? What makes some more desirable than others? Find the answers to these questions by discovering the advantages and disadvantages of the three following mechanisms:

  • Dual stack: One of the very first approaches, which allows IPv4 and IPv6 to allow simultaneously on network devices
  • Network Address Translation (NAT) Protocol: Uses traditional NAT dynamics to translate between each respective protocol
  • Tunneling: makes use of a configured tunnel to transport IPv6 over a native IPv4 network, which may consist of two or more sites
