Abstract

Momentum for IPv6 transition is on the rise, and many transition tools and techniques are available to ISPs, enterprise networks, and unmanaged networks. From a transitioning perspective, the ISP environment is interesting because the operators migration approaches will define, quite strictly, the extent of IPv6 services that their customers receive. As such, the ISPs (scalable) migration decisions have direct knock-on effects for customers. In the future, customers might require ISPs to offer value-added lPv6 services that not only have performance-based restrictions, but security and mobility considerations, as well.
