Demystifying IPv6 transition

  1. 1. Demystifying IPv6 transition What does it mean for organizations?1 © 2012 WIPRO LTD | WWW.WIPRO.COM
  2. 2. HIGHLIGHTS The Transition from IPv4 to IPv6 With the unanticipated growth of the internet and proliferation of interconnected devices, we are facing a scenario where IPv4 addresses are nearly exhausted. Sooner rather than later, migration to IPv6 will be inevitable “We could assign an IPv6 address to EVERY ATOM ON THE SURFACE OF THE EARTH, and still have enough addresses left to do another 100+ earths!”2 © 2012 WIPRO LTD | WWW.WIPRO.COM
  3. 3. Limitations of IPv4 Quality Scarcity of available Lack of inbuilt security Quality of Service is public IPv4 addresses mechanism limited Network address Internet Protocol Security IPv4 based networks translation (NAT) is a short (IPSec) provides network cannot differentiate term measure security time sensitive data payloads from non-time  Does not support network  Not built-in and is optional for sensitive data payloads layer security standards and IPv4 the correct mapping of all  Implementations are upper layer protocols proprietary and therefore  Creates network problems come at an additional cost when two organizations that use the same private IPv4 address ranges communicate3 © 2012 WIPRO LTD | WWW.WIPRO.COM
  4. 4. Why and when an enterprise should consider IPv6 The phenomenal growth in the Not adopting IPv6 will not only number of objects connecting to limit the growth of the internet but the network and the interactions also the business potential of between them brings an increased enterprises. As more and more focus on the rate of depletion of users start adopting IPv6-only IPv4 addresses, network security devices, enterprises with IPv4 and QoS, making the transition to websites will surely be left behind IPv6 inevitable. if they do not provide for this shift. Realizing the urgency, governments across the world are mandating a transition to IPv6.4 © 2012 WIPRO LTD | WWW.WIPRO.COM

Typical Customer Roadmap for IPv6 transition A typical customer roadmap would involve the following steps prior to implementation: Steps Checklist Defining the transition approach Assessing enterprise readiness Developing the implementation plan Defining the dependencies and milestones Defining the testing strategy and pilot plan Identifying the training needs Evaluating cost of transition6 © 2012 WIPRO LTD | WWW.WIPRO.COM

Enlisting an Expert partner As technology evangelists and system integrators, expert partners such as Bringing in an expert Wipro have formulated best partner would help to avoid practices that ensure that the common pitfalls and design and build do not effect a smooth transition. become prohibitively IPv4 to IPv6 transition is expensive and IPv6 The partner can be involved beset with technical and migration is achieved with with one or all the phases of operational challenges. minimal impact. They are the IPv6 implementation/ Without required expertise, fully equipped to facilitate migration. there could be a huge the smooth migration from impact on cost, resources, IPv4 to IPv6 for banks, infrastructure and personnel financial institutions, ISPs and telecom vendors alike.7 © 2012 WIPRO LTD | WWW.WIPRO.COM
  8. 8. Conclusion  IPv6 migration is today accepted and supported by organizations globally.  Although the initial costs seem high, organizations understand the long term benefits of such a transition.  Migration from IPv4 to IPv6 is a gradual phased process that must include careful planning and the transition capability to deliver mechanisms to enable the same with best ROI.  IPv6 ensures enhanced end to end service delivery along with highly scalable and future ready infrastructure.  IPv6 will enable service providers to support current and next generation applications for many more users worldwide.8 © 2012 WIPRO LTD | WWW.WIPRO.COM
