|IPv6 and the Enterprise|

Understanding the fundamental inner workings of IPv6, and the differences between IPv4 and IPv6, and actually deploying it in an enterprise environment are two rather different tasks. For those who have kind of mastered the basics of IPv6 and are now confronted with an actual deployment project, we investigate a number of essential topics you don't learn from the protocol specs, like:
The tutorial is targeted at people with a basic understanding of IPv6 but little or no experience in actually deploying it at an enterprise scale. While we will quickly recap the protocol basics as needed, this tutorial is a fair step up from a beginner's course.
- First things first: What should you do as early as possible even if you still believe you don't need IPv6 (yet)?
- Making a plan: How to tackle an IPv6 project, from resource and time estimates to risk identification and management.
- Given the usual plethora of client applications, how can we identify the ones supporting IPv6 without trouble, and how do we handle the legacy ones to our user's satisfaction?
- With all the squabbles between DHCP and SLAAC devotees, what are the no-nonsense options to host configuration that actually get the job done?
- Is microsegmentation really the way to go? If so, how far can or should we push it and how can we actually migrate a live environment to it?
