With Early Release ebooks, you get books in their earliest form—the author's raw and unedited content as he or she writes—so you can take advantage of these technologies long before the official release of these titles. You'll also receive updates when significant changes are made, new chapters as they're written, and the final ebook bundle.

With the recent exhaustion of IPv4 in North America, Asia, and Europe, and Latin America it’s official: IPv4 is on life-support and is rapidly on its way to becoming a legacy protocol. Meanwhile, IPv6 adoption is surging. More than half of the traffic on the nation’s largest mobile network is over IPv6 while a social networking giant plans to no longer use IPv4 internally within 18 months. No matter where you work, as a networking professional, IPv6 adoption is in your future.

Along with that adoption comes the need for an IPv6 address plan. This guide provides a comprehensive overview of how to create one. In three sections—preparation, design, and maintenance—enterprise IT network architects, engineers, and administrators will learn the current best-practices for designing, deploying, and maintaining an effective IPv6 addressing plan.

      Comments about oreilly IPv6 Address Planning:

      Where I work, we're still wrestling with the questions of how to carve up the IPv6 address space. The author does a good job of explaining how and why "v4 thinking" doesn't work very well for IPv6 planning, and gives real-world examples of how it should and should not be done.

      The book also serves as a pretty good primer for IPv6 addressing in general, explaining the structure of an IPv6 address in terms that someone with a basic understanding of IPv4 networking will understand.

      I have strongly recommended this to all of my colleagues.
