Description - Migrating to IPv6 by Marc Blanchet
IPv6 is the future of the always on, mobile Internet. The new version is vital for making that self-restocking fridge scenario into a reality, as the old version (IPv4) is not able to cope with the number of individual machines and people that will need to be networked together in the future. Other business drivers for migrating to IPv6 include: transmitting data wireless-ly (ie. internet access, messaging etc. via your mobile phone), creating home area networks that are constantly connected to the internet, evolving telecommunications systems which transmit voice over IP networks, and many more. Migrating to IPv6 does not try to cover absolutely everything, it is not an 'everything you ever wanted to know and quite a lot you didn't' style reference book, but it IS a 'how to' tutorial on implementing, applying and deploying the protocol. The value is in the author's experience-based advice and techniques for putting the technology to work. Migrating IPv6 features: To the point, practical perspective aimed at people who need to implement IPv6 in their daily work.
Contains advice and tried-and-tested practical techniques from the person who ported the first application into IPv6 (Quake) Provides configuration examples of popular implementations: cisco, nortel,microsoft, sun, linux, 3com The 'insider' knowledge of the technology as the author is a member of the IPv6 Forum board This is THE book every network (wired and wireless) engineer needs on their bookshelf as a practical and useful reference for IPv6.
