A new Internet era has dawned with World IPv6 Launch. Over 2,500 organizations like BT have enabled IPv6 Internet reachability permanently to celebrate the launch.
The Internet is officially no longer a homogeneous IPv4-only Internet – it is now a dual-protocol IPv4-IPv6 Internet. While the proportion of IPv6 Internet traffic is relatively small today, the composition of today’s Internet is already shifting.
In this video Mike Sapien, Principal Analyst for Enterprise Telecoms at Ovum, shares some insight into the IPv6 Ovum report.
If you need assistance with IPv6 deployment planning, BT can help you assess your IP network to determine what, if any network modifications or upgrades may be required to support IPv6, then assist with planning, implementation and IPv4-IPv6 network operations. Key among tools used during the overall assessment, planning, deployment and management process is our IP address management solutions from BT Diamond IP. These solutions enable assessment and planning of your IPv4 and IPv6 address plans, and are indispensable in the ongoing management of address space within an organization’s IPv4-IPv6 network.
