IPv6 has been on almost every IT team's list to implement "next year" for the past 10 years. Two trends have recently converged to make this the year to implement IPv6: vendor support has been getting better, and available IPv4 addresses have been getting rarer. Currently all new PCs ship with IPv6 enabled by default, and the global pool of IPv4 numbers at IANA is empty. Deployment of IPv6 has been getting easier thanks to strategies like dual-stack, NAT, and tunneling, but those strategies will start to get more difficult as allocating IPv4 addresses becomes harder and security concerns increase on IPv6. Right now it’s the easiest it’s ever been to roll out IPv6, and may be the easiest it will ever be. Now is the time to stop deferring IPv6 deployment.
This webinar will focus on how WildPackets OmniPeek network analyzer provides Expert analysis, visibility, and insight for IPv6 as you begin the transition.
What we’ll cover:
IPv6 addressing, address format, SLAAC auto-addressing, and DHCPv6
ICMPv6, including neighbor discovery (previously ARP) and router discovery
Interoperability between IPv4 and IPv6 via tunnels and NAT
DNS over IPv6
What you will learn:
Common deployment pains, how to identify them, how to fix them
Security considerations for IPv6
How to find and control IPv6 on your network
