    • IPv6 Critical Events are Creating Urgency 2011 Jan - 0.15% of top million web sites available via IPv6 2011 Jan - IANA assigns all addresses to RIRs 2011 March - Microsoft to acquire Nortel’s IPv4 addresses for $7.5-million 2011 April - RIR APNIC assigns all addresses 2011 June - On World IPv6 Day A10 customer has over 1m+ IPv6 visitors 2011 Nov - 0.80% of top million web sites available via IPv6 2011 - More adoption than previous years combined 2012 June - IPv6 Day no issues reported, again 2012 Oct - 4.6% of top million web sites available via IPv6 7
    • IPv6 Critical Events are Creating Urgency 2012More adoption than previous years combined  For the second year  Accelerating dramatically 8
    • First Live Deployment - NTT Plala, JapanThe IPv6 network, model for the future? Project: Hikari-TV, implementation and live in 2008 Purpose: IPTV broadcasting and video on-demand service (and Karaoke!) Network: Native IPv6-based, fiber-to-the-home network First large-scale, commercially successful application of IPTV service that runs over a IPv6 network "After a comparative test...we selected A10s AX Series..as the high-performance server load balancer platform for Hikari-TV...video distribution” service..." 9
    • What Does Your Network Look Like? No standard compatibility Different requirements  Home  Enterprise  Service Provider “IPv4 Legacy Networks” 10
    • Common IPv6 Migration Techniques Dual-Stack Encapsulation Translation 11
    • What Does Each Technology Do? Retire IPv4?IPv6 Access to IPv4 DS-Lite to Access IPv6 allow IPv4 NAT64/DNS64 access over to enable IPv6 IPv6 core only clients to 6rd to enable connect to IPv4 IPv6 access resources over existing IPv4 core CGN to solve public IPv4 Preserve IPv4 address shortages and standard NAT SLB-PT or IPv6 SLB to enable IPv6 on public web Enable IPv6 sites 12
    • What Are the Benefits and Real Use Cases? IPv4 is the legacy protocol, cost IPv6 supplier is bought, savings require retirement of need to provide access to IPv4 core internal IPv4 applicationsCritical new supplier isIPv6 only, internal clientsrequire accessimmediately Limited IPv4 resources and propriety NAT errors stop Internet facing service growth IPv6 web site to protect brand and ensure universal access SLB-PT CGN 6rd NAT64/DNS64 DS-Lite 13
    • What is the Enterprise ROI? IPv6 is a business imperative Why IPv6?  Reduce costs in medium to long term  Reduce complexity  Compelling use cases emerging Reasons to start today  Brand reputation, no blank pages  New services, cost of IPv4 addresses  IT staff education and readiness  Reduce surprises by scoping impact 14
