IPv6: Why Should You Care?

449 views

Published on

This business briefing discussion focuses on:

What is this new IPv6 everyone is talking about?
What new features is IPv6 going to give us?

Technically, IPv6 offers very little that IPv4 cannot do presently. However, it does offer your business a chance for continual growth and expansion into areas that are developing rapidly, and a chance to have a business edge on some of your competitors.

  • CIO - “So what is this new IPv6 everyone is talking about, and what new features is it going to give us”Systems Engineer – “Well really, it will not enable any new features that we require but…..”CIO – “So its another Y2K then?” Systems Engineer – “Well no, IPv6 is not something that we will need to implement to stop a potential disaster, its…..”CIO - “Well that’s that then, we continue as normal. Maybe we can look at buying this when they release version 7, thanks” This is the potential arguments that will be happening in a lot of companies around the world. IPv6 is labelled as he new Y2K without justification.
  • IPv6 is not another scare tactic released by IT gurus hidden away in a dark room, trying to generate a cash flow stream from organisations already under tight budgets.  IPv6 is about growth, expansion and future proofing the public internet which is exploding at a rate that far out grows the current communications protocol known as IPv4. V6 is also about enablement. It will enable organisations all over the world to have the potential to do business with every person, and every device connected to the internet.
  • Presently there are 5.3 billion mobile devices users* in the world. The growth is driven by emerging markets such as China and India. As each of these mobile devices becomes a smart phone, they will become potential internet users and they will also become potential consumers.Considering there are only 4.3 billion addresses available in IPv4, it is easy to see how the growth of the internet is inhibited by the current protocol. Currently Network Address Translation (NAT) provides a solution by allowing companies to reuse private IP address spaces and multiplex the many internet connections to single public IP addresses. However NAT within ISPs needs high end networking devices, and the ISPs need to constantly keep reinvesting in these devices as more and more mobile users become internet aware. Looking at the above, it is not surprising that mobile service providers operating on tight profit margins ** will be part of the initial transitional companies to move to IPv6. They will be joined by emerging markets such as China (75% converted, Korea, Japan, and other large Asia markets).
  • So what does that mean to me? This is the question on most CIOs lips at present. The answer to this is, at present it probably doesn’t mean too much unless you are in a business which heavily involves transactions with Asia or mobile device users.  However, without a clear and detailed road map transition plan that is linked to key business outcomes, as more services become only IPv6 enabled, your organisation will be prohibited in the ability to either grow into these new markets, or continue to operate as normal with the services that you currently deploy or use.
  • So getting to IPV6 is a definite, there are no two ways around it. It’s a question of “when” and “how”, and every business will needto move towards IPv6 in some form over the next few years. Logicalis’approach is to provide a framework, and help customers to align IPv6 migration with business needs and strategies. The key benefit is that if a structured approach is taken, you alleviate the need for a ‘big bang’ last minute configuration change which brings with it a high level of risk and potential costs/outages.We start with a workshop, which is an initial introduction to IPv6 and the relevance to your business. We then introduceour methodology to transitioning to IPv6 using a structured and measured approach. 
  • Logicalis delivered the first IPv6 Dynamic Multipoint Virtual Private Network (DMVPN)in Australia for Monash University, which enables the university to deliver services to local and remote branches. For those more technically minded, it usesOSPFv3 (OSPF for IPv6 as the routing protocol) as well as extended IPv6 and v4 multicast traffic out to the branches (and buses). We configured a mobile dynamic multipoint VPN between the Monash campus and remote sites and locations. The remote sites were either small offices or buses that would transit between the Monash university campus. The solution allowed us to extend IPv6 natively out to these sites whilst using the existing IPv4 public internet. It allowed users on buses to be able to use IPv6 to communicate with any of the services within Monash, or use IPv4 to browse the internet. 
  • Technically, IPv6 offers very little that IPv4 cannot do presently. However, it does offer your business a chance for continual growth and expansion into areas that are developing rapidly at present, and also a chance to have a business edge on some of your competitors.
