IPv6, Internet Protocol Version 6, is the next-generation internet protocol designed by the IETF to replace the current IPv4, now nearly 20 years old. As the new IPv6 protocol replaces IPv4, professionals need a practical and detailed reference and introduction that explains the new capabilities and changes. Especially since new and modified features and integration of additional protocols underpin IPv6, a well-organized overview becomes even vital. Here readers find a full explanation of what they need to know to function optimally in the new environment. Based on the latest IETF meetings, Understanding IPv6 provides not only the basics but details on transition and optimization mechanisms, modifications in DNS, mobile IPv6, and security issues. In addition, Understanding IPv6 explains each topic based on the latest IETF published documents and: Compares IPv6 and IPv4, e.g., crucial aspects such as protocol and addressing architecture, expanded address features, modifications of DNS, and header formats. Clarifies the many related protocols that need to be mastered in optimizing IPv6, plus core features such as neighbor discovery, address autoconfiguration, and DHCPv6. Details internetworking mechanisms and mobility services with many examples and figures. Devotes full coverage to transition mechanisms, especially Teredo. Understanding IPv6 is a reference work for graduate level students, communications engineers and researchers.

Organizations are increasingly transitioning to IPv6, the next generation protocol for defining how devices of all kinds communicate over networks. Now fully updated, IPv6 Fundamentals offers a thorough, friendly, and easy-to-understand introduction to the knowledge and skills you need to deploy and operate IPv6 networks. Leading networking instructor Rick Graziani explains all the basics simply and clearly, step-by-step, providing all the details you'll need to succeed. You'll learn why IPv6 is necessary, how it was created, how it works, and how it has become the protocol of choice in environments ranging from cloud to mobile and IoT. Graziani thoroughly introduces IPv6 addressing, configuration options, and routing protocols, including EIGRP for IPv6, and OSPFv3 (traditional configuration and with address families). Building on this coverage, he then includes more in-depth information involving these protocols and processes.

Learn how IPv6 supports modern networks encompassing the cloud, mobile, IoT, and gaming devices Compare IPv6 with IPv4 to see what has changed and what hasn't Understand and represent IPv6 addresses for unicast, multicast, and anycast environments Master all facets of dynamic IPv6 address allocation with SLAAC, stateless DHCPv6, and stateful DHCPv6 Understand all the features of deploying IPv6 addresses in the network including temporary addresses and the privacy extension Improve operations by leveraging major enhancements built into ICMPv6 and ICMPv6 Neighbor Discovery Protocol Configure IPv6 addressing and Access Control Lists using a common topology Implement routing of IPv6 packets via static routing, EIGRP for IPv6, and OSPFv3 Walk step-by-step through deploying IPv6 in existing networks, and coexisting with or transitioning from IPv4
The Internet Protocol (IP) is the foundation of TCP/IP, the suite of networking protocols that define the Internet. As the size of the edifice built on top of the IP increases, the foundation is developing serious cracks. This text examines the problems that arose since the 1980s as well as the solutions proposed to solve them. It introduces the features, functions and operations of the IPv6 and related protocols, and covers the Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP), Domain Name System (DNS), routing protocols, and issues of deployment.
"By building IPv6 into Cisco IOS software, we are enabling continued growth of the Internet and its expansion into new applications and capabilities in a way that maintains compatibility with existing Internet services." -- Stephen Deering, Cisco Fellow and lead designer of the protocol Internetworking Protocol (IP) addresses are the unique numeric identifiers required of every device connected to the Internet. Two years ago, in response to the exponential increase in demand for new IP addresses, the Internet Engineering Task Force finalized its revision on IP addressing, called IP Version 6 and key hardware vendors such as Cisco and major Internet Service Providers like AOL announced plans to migrate to IP Version 6. That is now happening. Cisco Systems began incorporating Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) in its Cisco IOS Software in June, 2001. Cisco is currently the only major networking vendor to deliver IPv6 across multiple platforms. This book provides complete coverage of IPv6 strategies, configuration scenarios, and techniques to successfully deploy an IPv6 addressing and subnetting scheme on your network. Increasing the IP address size from 32 bits to 128 bits Supporting more levels of addressing hierarchy Supporting an increased number of addressable nodes Supporting simpler auto-configuration of addresses Improving the scalability of multicast routing by adding a "scope" field to multicast addresses Use a new "anycast address" to send a packet to any one of a group of nodes
