Product Description

From the Back Cover

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.

HASH(0xa760784c) out of 5 stars Comprehensive, Readable, and Advanced .... Jan. 29 2007
By John Spence - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is an ideal book for a knowledgeable and self-motivated IPv4 network engineer to pick up and learn a great deal about IPv6 - especially about IPv6 as it is being deployed today in enterprise and ISP networks. The book is certainly not for beginners to networking - the book moves quickly to emphasize the differences between IPv4 and IPv6, assuming you are a pretty advanced IPv4 engineer to begin. But, this conciseness is one of the books great strengths. It assumes you can pickup the basics quickly (the first few chapters provide an excellent but accelerated recap of the basics) or from one of the many references the book provides, and instead focused on information you don't see in IPv6 books as much - deployment issues, innovative solutions, and throughout - real-world insight. The book is absolutely up-to-date. It is my "go to" book on advanced IPv6 deployment strategies, and should be on every budding IPv6 engineer's bookshelf. Right in the front.

HASH(0xa761796c) out of 5 stars IPv6 is Maturing - Great Book! Feb. 23 2007
By Scott R. Hogg - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book is a great technical book on current IPv6 technology state and direction. It covers many of the newer topics in IPv6 and provides good examples of how Cisco has implemented these. The diagrams, tables, and organization are all top-notch. The configuration examples, show command output and the debug output are very helpful. It is easy to read despite the very technical subject matter. The heavy use of diagrams/tables/config examples help technical people understand the material because they are more visually-oriented. The case studies at the end are very helpful for service providers and enterprises.

HASH(0xa7f7bde0) out of 5 stars Don't Be Surprised May 31 2006
By John Gordon Ainsworth - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book is targeted toward network service provider engineers. It is "cutting edge" in that some parts of it deal with technology that is not only not deployed in production yet, but is only in draft form in the standards community. Also ambitious enterprise network administrators may want to stretch their understanding of the next generation global transport protocol. Deploying IPv6 Networks is both an exhaustive analogy of the many uses of IPv6 and also a how-to manual with many configuration examples.

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.

HASH(0xa7959054) out of 5 stars A 'must' for advanced network engineers April 13 2006
By D. Donovan, Editor/Sr. Reviewer - Published on
Format: Paperback
Advanced network administrators and programmers alike will welcome to technical reference Ciprian Popoviciu,'s DEPLOYING IPV6 NETWORKS, which discusses large deployment serve implementation in existing Ipv4 environments. Concepts are connected to real networks and IP service issues and cover everything from design objectives around the world and different ISP customer needs and profiles to getting information from routers and switches, defining MIBs for supporting Ipv6 information and different deployment plans and strategies. A 'must' reference for advanced technical network engineers.
HASH(0xa7f89ed0) out of 5 stars Good book with good examples Nov. 24 2012

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I used this book for a IPv6 class thy I taught. The material was good and had a good amount of depth, however it does need some updating based on the current IPv6 best practices and suggested implementation methods.

Other than the updating I think this is an excellent book.
