Real World Demonstration of MAP for IPv6

…We do it by avoiding the IPv4 in the service provider core and the CPE — we define a 1:1 mapping between a CPE IPv6 allocated prefix and its IPv4 address and port set id. Then, for delivering the packets to the correct CPE we can use simple IPv6 routing, and reap the benefits of the experience with this technology to provide the effective connectivity to the users during the shortage of IPv4 addresses, while not having to maintain any state (be…

IPv6 Just Works: Cisco Live London Dual-Stack Network

…y easy. My estimate was that we spent about an hour for the process overall. Half that time consisted of a quick IPv6 refresher course with the administrators of the site to ensure they could be as efficient as with IPv4. The other half hour consisted of testing the operation of the dual stack-enabled site. Since the IPv6 fabric was already provisioned, the mere addition of the IPv6 address was trivial. If your web properties consist of a single…
