The Switch to IPv6: How to Make a Smooth Transition

The benefits of IPv6 are many, including 128-bit address space, more efficient routing, simplified network configuration, support for new services and improved security. The Commerce Department estimates that
IPv6 adoption will provide an ongoing benefit to the global economy of $10 billion.

The transition from IPv4 to IPv6 will require a comprehensive inventory of hardware and software (including possible product upgrades), as well as accommodations for IPv6 in all procurement plans. The move will take time and effort, so don’t wait until the last minute to get started.
