IPv6 Address Planning
Designing an address plan for the future
Publisher: O'Reilly Media
Final Release Date: May 2014
Pages: 250

With the recent exhaustion of IPv4 in North America, Asia, and Europe (and Latin America later this year), 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.
