An essential, comprehensive, and practical guide to IPv6 concepts, service implementation, and interoperability in existing IPv4 environments
After completingDeploying IPv6 Networks, you will:
- Understand the current state of IPv6 technologies and services
- Understand the IPv6 features as they are applied in service deployments
- Be prepared with guidelines on how to ready your organization for a migration to IPv6
- Know how to design and implement an IPv6 production-level network using the book's templates and examples
- Have the ability to configure and troubleshoot IPv6 networks
- Know where IPv6 developments are moving in the future
Large IPv6 production deployments worldwide are proof that the transition to the next generation of the IP protocol is no longer merely a prediction—IPv6 is now touching all aspects of IP networking and communications. Therefore, understanding the technology and being able to plan, design, and deploy IPv6 services are necessary skills for networking professionals.
Deploying IPv6 Networksis an essential guide to IPv6 concepts, service implementation, and interoperability in existing IPv4 environments. You'll learn about IPv6 as a mature technology ready for deployment.Deploying IPv6 Networksgoes beyond addressing the basics of IPv6 yet remains accessible to readers unfamiliar with the protocol. With this book in hand, you will learn how to plan, design, deploy, and manage IPv6 services.
Deploying IPv6 Networksopens with an updated “Case for IPv6: a review of the IPv4 challenges and the IPv6 opportunities. It then covers the IPv6 concepts related to IP services provided in real networks. Relevant features and corresponding configuration examples are presented in a deployment context as they are applied to the various segments of the network. The IPv6 knowledge accumulated in the first part of the book is revisited in Part II, where it is leveraged in concrete and usable examples that cover most common network environments: MPLS service provider, IP service provider, and enterprise.
The structure ofDeploying IPv6 Networksenables you to use it as a reference for specific aspects of IPv6, as a technology study guide, or as a design guide for deploying IPv6. You'll also find that the presentation approach enables you to leverage your IPv4 experience to quickly become knowledgeable and proficient with the concepts of IPv6.

Chapters 12 through 15 are dedicated to deployment Case studies for both ISPs and company networks. The book became most interesting to me in Chapter 8, Advanced Services - Ipv6 Mobility. This chapter covers the challenges of keeping a globally unique address while roaming to different parts of the planet. There is a thorough explanation of the roles that Cisco routers can play in relaying traffic to the ever changing location of mobile users. Chapter 2 is a good refresher of the basics of IPv6 as described in the RFCs. The author gives good reference throughout the book for further research on each topic, such as RFCs and other books that specialize on topics like VPNs and Security. The diagrams, that are spaced every few pages, give clarity to the subject. Finally, the book is balanced and realistic in its philosophy of the technology. That is the writers are not naïve about the problems with implementing IPv6 and they address this in every chapter.
Technology usually changes so rapidly we spend all our time just trying to catch up. The slow start of IPv6 gives us no excuse for being unprepared when the next killer application or device demands its implementation in our network. Reading Deploying IPv6 Networks is sure to pay off.
