10 Steps to a Successful IPv6 Implementation
C’mon…didn’t you guys just do an IPv6 show back in 2007? Yes, and although many others have covered this ad-nauseum…(and we don’t run ads…) we thought it was high time we covered it TechWiseTV style…which means we got the details.
Watch it right now or keep reading for more details…
Specifically, we did not want to focus on big numbers or sky is falling stuff – its been done. We wanted to cover the actual reality of implementation.
If scare tactics still get you going…you know we have now officially run out of IPv4 addresses so I do think this topic has a new feeling of urgency.
The time for making educated decisions on your IPv6 migration can no longer be put off. Much has been learned about how to do this right and this one is all about asking the right questions and providing the right guidance.
Questions with the potential for long-term impact like:
- Should we fully transition to IPv6 all at once, or integrate it gradually?
- Is it preferable to IPv6-enable the entire network infrastructure before transitioning applications?
- What is the best approach when applications need to co-exist on IPv4 and IPv6?
- What are the security implications that may already be an issue?
- What is the reality of translation protocols like NAT64 and the potential pitfalls of its various flavors?
- What does a real implementation look like and what can my team expect?
These and other decisions affect the ease of the IPv6 integration and can help shape your strategy. This is one transition that touches every part of the network from the core to the edge and every user in between.

Segment 3: IPv6 Security Threats and Mitigation
Robb & Jimmy Ray
The security implications for IPv6 exist no matter where you are in the transition process. Robb & Jimmy Ray demonstrate the ones you need pay closest attention to
Segment 4: IPv6 and InteropNET
Jimmy Ray and Patrick Warichet
Patrick Warichet joins Jimmy Ray to reveal both the triumph and the tribulation of Cisco’s own move to IPv6. Key lessons around co-existence strategies, DNS, DHCP and network management.
Segment 5: IPv6 and NAT64
Jimmy Ray and Muhammad Abid
Muhammad Abid joins us to review options for NAT64 and whether the stateless flavor of this protocol should be in your IPv6 transition strategy.

Feedback Loop today came from ‘Seth’ in Ireland with a question about Auto-Config v6 vs. DHCP v6. Watch the show for our answer of course – but a few resources here:
Thank you as always to our friends from CiscoPress – one of the best book references we used for this show was IPV6 for Enterprise Networks – a number of good ‘friends of the show’ collaborating on this one: Shannon McFarland, Muninder Sambi, Nikhil Sharma and Sanjay Hooda.
