What Enterprises Should Do About IPv6 in 2011

What Enterprises Should Do About IPv6 in 2011


While ISPs are mainly concerned with IPv4 address exhaustion, enterprises should assess their exposure to IPv6. It is quite possible that regulations and mandates will enforce the use of IPv6, but there are many other reasons to move to IPv6 for enterprises: security, new application support, getting rid of NAT, easier network deployment, providing IPv6-only services to Internet newcomers, being ready for the future.

The purpose of this white paper is to provide enterprises with guidance, based on a three- to five-year outlook, on how IPv6 should be included in their network design, planning, and operations starting today. The intended audience is enterprise network administrators.
