IPv6 is rapidly becoming an important
network technology to service providers,
government agencies and enterprises.
Deployment of IPv6 requires new management strategies, practices and tools to enable deployment and effective operation.
Because most deployments of IPv6 will be in dual-stack networks that use IPv4 and IPv6 in parallel, the IPv4 management infrastructure will be extended for IPv6 for integrated IPv4-IPv6 operation. It will be
crucial for IPv6 deployments to be carefully
planned and managed to ensure successful
implementation and avoid significant
increases in management overhead. This
article provides some background information
on IPv6 deployment and management
