This short presentation offers a first glance at IPv6. It discusses the new features of the protocol and compares it to IPv4, thereby offering a good overview of what functionality it has that you may need or desire in your network. An overview of the market, of vendor support, of IPv6 projects all over the world shows you that IPv6 is alive and used and that there are people out there who have worked with it. It also discusses coexistence of IPv4 and IPv6 as well as transition mechanisms defined which will make the transition as smooth as possible. Last but not least the business case will be discussed and guidelines given as to when it is important for you to start thinking or planning for IPv6.
