An overview of enabling IPv6 inside a large, global enterprise network. Includes planning aspects, aspects of technical testing, roll-out tracking and lessons learnt so far.
How do you embrace IPv6 in a global enterprise, with tens of thousands of network devices, delivery teams all around the globe and no real shortage on IPv4 space? This presentation will talk about the introduction of IPv6 inside IBM’s own network over the past few years, the challenges we’ve seen and some outlook for the road ahead of us. As enterprises in general seem to be more behind IPv6 than ISPs or carriers, this session is aimed to help those who still need to build a case within their own company.
