Have you been scratching your head wondering what this IPv6 thing is all about and how it might impact you? Have you seen an IPv6 address and wondered “How in the world do I subnet that?” Have you been praying to a deity that you will get to retire before you ever have to deal with IPv6? Does your IT team have ANY experience with IPv6 at all? Face it, it’s 2013 and you and your company don't know squat about IPv6. IANA ran out of IPv4 in 2011, APNIC and RIPE effectively ran out in 2011 and 2012 respectively, and ARIN is due to run out in 2014. So, what is your IPv6 strategy?
This session starts with explaining the current status of IPv4 and IPv6. It covers the desperate measures that the industry is adopting to extend the life of IPv4 and how it will affect your business use of the Internet. Next, it provides best practices for how to deploy IPv6, the gotchas and common mistakes you and your team will make along the way, and how to fix them. Finally, it will wrap up with some resources and next steps to get your IPv6 adoption moving.
