For IPv4 the Sunset Begins. For IPv6 the Day Is Just Getting Started
That was quick! I mentioned earlier in the week that, in any day, the IANA would hand out the last IPv4 address. Today it happened. And coinciding with the X-day, our panel discussed the true impact of the IPv4 address run-out. To mitigate it, Cisco’s Carrier-Grade IPv6 (CGv6) solution is designed to help enable a smooth transition.
One interesting observation I’ve seen is how something as obtuse and techie as IPv6 has generated so much interest in the main stream press – such as this article at the Wall Street Journal, Web Running Out of Addresses. Even my mother asked me about it on the phone last night “will the internets shut down?” No way mom…we’ve got that covered. The Internet will be Preserved, Prepared, and then Prosper!
