IPv6: the what, why and how


Published on

In this day and age where internet connectivity is becoming more and more ubiquitous, IPv4 addresses are forseen to be exhausted by 2011.

in this webcast, we will cover
why entreprises should migrate to IPv6
what the underlying challenges for such a migration are
how Orange Business Service can support you to successfully migrate from IPv4 to IPv6
