World IPv6 Launch Event Marks Massive Transition in IP Addressing: What It Means to You

Listen to the Podcast

July 2nd, 2012

June 6, 2012 was World IPv6 Launch event, which marked the transition toward IPv6 on a global basis and will forever be the transition reference point. Close to 30% of pages viewed on the Internet globally were reachable over IPv6 after June 6, 2012. In May of 2012, there were only 519 sites IPv6 enabled or about 3% of web content. That number jumped to more than 2,500 sites or approximately 30% according to Cisco. In this Lippis Report podcast, I talk with Alain Fiocco, Senior Director of Cisco’s IPv6 High Impact Project, as we discuss IPv6 transition adoption and what it means to you.

The formal exhaustion of public IPv4 addresses by the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority in 2011 occurred at a critical turning point in the history of the Internet—namely, at the moment when the typical Internet host is evolving away from the desktop and to the mobile device. As a result, the entire human population is expected to have online access by 2015. Such scale will only be feasible with the abundance of address resources offered by IPv6. As a result, any organization relying on the IT ecosystem enabled by the Internet Protocol—especially those organizations with public-facing content—is at great risk. In the absence of an IPv6 adoption initiative, an organization’s business continuity, business agility and competitive advantage are all endangered.

Infoblox Automates Transition to IPv6

December 19th, 2011

Having a plan to transition to IPv6 has moved way up in the priority list of IT projects for IT leaders as 2011 was officially the year we ran out of IPv4 unallocated addresses and not having IPv6 could cut-off corporations and applications from accessing the internet. In addition employees en masse are “BYOD” or bring your own device meaning smartphone and tables to work increasing the number of devices on the network significantly. These devices and their applications are driving support of both IPv4 and IPv6 as many mobile devices are now set for IPv6 as the default. As dual stack IP v4/v6 is the best practice, the real challenge lies within the domain name service or DNS. Infloblox has developed a range of solutions to automate the transition to IPv6 by supporting both addressing schemes. Tom Coffeen, Chief IPv6 Evangelist at Infoblox talks about solutions to automate the transition to IPv6. It’s one of our best IPv6 discussions.

June 14th, 2010

By Cisco Systems

This paper provides a brief introduction to common security threats on IPv6 campus access networks and will explain the value of using First Hop Security (FHS) technology in mitigating these threats. An overview of the operational principle of FHS is provided together with some examples on how to enable FHS on Catalyst® 6500, 4500, and 3750 Series Switches. The target audience for this paper are network architects and network operation engineers.
