Product Description


"The book will definitely be a part of the toolkit of the practitioners when the eventual large-scale migration of Pv4 addressing to IPv6 starts gathering momentum." (Desicritics.org, November 21, 2006)

From the Back Cover

Exhaustion of address space and global routing table growth necessitate important revisions to the current version of the Internet Protocol, IPv4. IP version 6 offers greater address space and additional features to support the evolving requirements of Internet applications. Deployed alongside current IPv4 networks, IPv6 will restore the full-fledge network necessary for Internet growth.

Migrating to IPv6 gives a comprehensive overview of IPv6 and related protocols, the layers below IPv6 to the application and end-user layers.  Author Marc Blanchet offers a direct and clear route to understanding the topic, taking a top-down approach and ordering topics by relevance. Tried and tested practical techniques and advice on implementation, applications and deployment provide how-to information on everything you need to know to put the technology to work.

Migrating to IPv6:

  • Provides a complete, up-to-date, in-depth, and accessible practical guide to IPv6.
  • Demonstrates the theory with practical and generic examples and major implementation configurations, such as Windows, FreeBSD, Linux, Solaris, Cisco, Juniper and Hexago.
  • Provides a comprehensive reference to key data structures and packet formats.
  • Summarizes topics in table and graphical form to give fast access to information, including over 200 figures.
  • Offers an accompanying website with extra coverage of specific topics, information on additional protocols and specifications, and updates on new features.

This text will give network engineers, managers and operators, software engineers and IT professionals and analysts a thorough understanding of IPv6.

HASH(0x9fe8e588) out of 5 stars Best book on IPv6 April 18 2006
By Samson Million - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I have half a dozen books on IPv6 on my shelf and by far Migrating to IPv6 provides the most comprehensive view of IPv6 and related protocols in both breath and depth. The book is written in clear and concise manner so it is a perfect learning tool. Moreover, it also makes for a good reference book because each chapter in the book is self-contained.

Our team works on IPv6 transition and we liked Migrating to IPv6 so much that we order a book for each team member. This is a must have book if you are working in Networking.

HASH(0x9fe8e5dc) out of 5 stars Comprehensive and up-to-date reference ... Jan. 23 2006
By John Spence - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is a very comprehensive reference for IPv6. The author covers IPv6 from the basics to advanced topics like multicasting, anycasting, and mobility. The book even covers the application aspects of IPv6 and porting issues, as Marc has that background as well. I would recommend this book to anyone seeking a up-to-the-minutes overview of IPv6, and as a reference for anyone that will be working with the protocol over the years ahead.

HASH(0x9fe8ea14) out of 5 stars Great V6 Transition Handbook Jan. 19 2006
By David B. Green - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Really useful IPv6 technical books are few and far between because the technology is so new and evolving rapidly so its hard for a book to keep up. Marc's new book is the most up to date and informative book available now. I've got a copy on my bookshelf and am already handing it to clients for reference about our IPv6 integration projects.

Amazon's date is wrong on this book. It was just published in Jan 2006, not in 2002.

Sylvia Hagen's book IPv6 Essentials is also excellent - I'm waiting for the 2nd edition to bring it up to date.

HASH(0x9fe8e9fc) out of 5 stars Excellent book! Would definitely recommend it. Nov. 4 2007
By R. J. Bennett - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I considered many different books about IPv6. It looks like I made the right choice. This book teaches both about IPv6 itself and how to implement it with different operating systems (Windows XP, Vista, Linux, FreeBSD, etc) using Cisco routers or Juniper routers. I am currently running a dual-stack on my home network (both IPv4 and IPv6) and hope to be fully prepared should I need to migrate a large business network to IPv6 in the near future.

Face it folks, IPv6 is coming. Windows Vista comes with it enabled, as well as a few tunneling technologies (such as ISATAP) to help the transition from IPv4.

HASH(0x9fe8edbc) out of 5 stars Best IPv6 book. Feb. 26 2008
By Yehoshoua Sasson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I own this book for almost 2 years I also own many more and by far this is the best IPv6 book. It covers all the topics of IPv6 and does it in a clear but not to simplistic way.
It serves both as a tutorial and a reference manual. One of the great things about it is that it covers IPv6 configuration on all major platforms like Windows LINUX and many others.
