The process of IPv6-enabling a data centre has usually been done in small incremental steps, with the aim to eventually have all the applications running in dual-stack mode. However, dual-stack operation has inherent complexity, and with IPv4 address depletion looming, is this really the best strategy?
This talk discusses an alternative to incremental dual-stack: Making the leap straight to IPv6-only operation. Depending on the applications that are used, this approach may potentially help reduce the pressure for increasingly scarce IPv4 resources, and at the same time significantly reduce the complexity of the overall platform.
Recognising that the internet is still a predominantly IPv4-only place, it will also go into how Stateless IP/ICMP Translation works and how it can be used to ensure that IPv4-only end-users will remain able to access the IPv6-only applications and services with minimal service degradation.
Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) is the latest revision of the Internet Protocol (IP), the communications protocol that provides an identification and location system for computers on networks and routes traffic across the Internet. IPv6 was developed by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) to deal with the long-anticipated problem of IPv4 address exhaustion. IPv6 is intended to replace IPv4, which still carries the vast majority of Internet traffic as of 2013. Presentations shows where we are with IPv6 within the industry.
Technical presentation wanted! We welcome all who want to talk about network technologies, operators’ solution and the best examples of network implementations. If you feel that sharing your knowledge and experience can make a significant contribution to the network community, don’t hesitate to send your topic! Together we want to create the most professional network conference in Poland.
The Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) standardizes the protocols and services that vendors implement and Internet operators are supposed to deploy and use. For many years, and for many reasons, we have observed an opportunity for improved communication between the IETF and these operators. The result is that IETF standards do not always fit operators’ needs; standards could be better designed and implemented if more operators that actually use them in their real-world networks agreed on what they need and provided more feedback into the RFC process within the IETF. Case in point – perhaps IPv6 could have been implemented more widely and more quickly if more operators had been involved in the IPv6 standardization process.
