IPv6 Address Planning
Designing an Address Plan for the Future
Publisher: O'Reilly Media
Final Release Date: November 2014
Pages: 286

If you’re ready to join the move to IPv6, this comprehensive guide gets you started by showing you how to create an effective IPv6 address plan. In three example-driven sections—preparation, design, and maintenance—you’ll learn principles and best practices for designing, deploying, and maintaining an address plan far beyond what’s possible with IPv4 networks.

During the course of the book, you’ll walk through the process of building a sample address plan for a fictional company. Enterprise IT network architects, engineers, and administrators will see firsthand how IPv6 provides opportunities for creating an operationally efficient plan that’s scalable, flexible, extensible, manageable, and durable.

  • Explore IPv6 addressing basics, including representation, structure, and types
  • Manage risks and costs by using a three-phase approach for deploying IPv6
  • Dig into IPv6 subnetting methods and learn how they differ from IPv4
  • Determine the appropriate size and type of the IPv6 allocation you require
  • Apply current network management tools to IPv6
  • Use IPv6 renumbering methods that enable greater network scale and easier integration
  • Implement policies and practices to keep IPv6 addresses reachable

      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.
