Business Drivers for IPv6

John King

Critical factors
Critical Factors

  • Why do we need to deploy IPv6?

  • What are the financial implications?

    • Of deploying IPv6

    • Of not deploying IPv6

  • What will be the effect on customers?

  • When do we need to have IPv6 deployed?

Rationale for ipv6












Rationale for IPv6

  • The growth of the Internet has been phenomenal and shows little signs of slowing!

  • But the basic unifying protocol (IP) that links applications to IP networks is starting to show its age and hamper growth

  • IPv6 builds on the success of today’s IPv4 protocol by solving fundamental problems

  • IPv6 will be required, in the long term, to enable the continued expansion and evolution of the Internet.

Drivers and timings
Drivers and Timings

  • Why an organisation needs IPv6

    • Commercial drivers

    • Political drivers

    • Technical drivers

  • When will IPv6 be required

    • IPv4 address exhaustion (probably within the next 10 years)

    • Migration to IPv6 Capable Operating Systems

    • Devices support

Why commercial
Why - Commercial

  • Strategic

    • Support future needs of customers

    • Be ready to support future IPv6 migration

    • Protect new infrastructure investment

    • Ability to grow the network to support new services and opportunities

  • IPv6 Cost savings

    • Private address management

    • Network management

    • Fault diagnosis

      Longer-term savings!


  • Migration costs

  • Co-existence

  • Training

Why commercial1
Why - Commercial

  • IPv4 Address Exhaustion

    • Predictions range from 2008 – 2017

    • Should assume that within 10 years you wont be able to get route-able IPv4 addresses

    • Auditing of IPv4 allocations may become costly

    • Global market place for route-able IPv4 addresses?

    • Private IPv4 addressing limited to about 16 million.

Why political
Why - Political

  • US Department of Defense mandate to migrate to IPv6 by 2008. Other US government agencies have been requested to follow suit.

  • Japanese ISPs supporting IPv6 today. Incentives provided by government.

  • South Korean governments mandating IPv6 migration.

  • Big push to deploy IPv6 in China by end of 2006.

Why technical
Why - Technical

  • New Service Opportunities

    • Efficient & Secure IP Mobility

    • Simpler Peer-to-peer applications development and deployment

      • VoIP

      • Network Gaming

      • Easy for novice installation

    • Remote Network Management


Home Network

Why technical1

Unsecured comms

Secure IPv6 network













Why - Technical

  • Ability to uniquely address Enterprise networks – particularly those that are geographically distributed.

  • Potentially easier to re-number after mergers

  • Internal enterprise security

    • protect revenue

Business drivers for ipv6

  • Dependent upon the factors that affect your business.

    • Market/customer intelligence

  • Migration should take a number of years to be most cost effective.

    • including network/application trials

  • Ensure no detrimental effect on existing business!

When transition
When - Transition

  • Part of normal equipment upgrade plans

    • Significant percentage of network equipment is IPv6 capable

    • BUT check for required features

    • Transparent to customers

    • Trials

  • Operational Support Systems

    • May need significant migration time

  • Personnel

    • Training and ‘on the job’ familiarisation

      Be Prepared for a long period of Co-existence!!

When vendor support
When – Vendor Support

  • Cisco

  • Juniper

  • Hitachi

  • Ericsson

    • All have mature IPv6 offerings.

    • Can build operational Core networks now.

When applications
When – Applications

  • Almost all Linux variants are IPv6 capable

  • Microsoft XP has IPv6 stack and support for IE

  • Microsoft Vista/Longhorn fully IPv6 capable – end of 2006

  • Gaming devices

    • Sony

    • Xbox

  • Consumer devices
