January 2015 – White paper on IPv6 implementation lessons published

Written by Ian Gray, the Savant Technical Director, this paper on IPv6 provides an insight into some of the issues around implementing IPv6. Originally written in 2010, this paper has been updated to reflect the many changes between then and 2014. Whilst the observations in the original document remain generally true, lessons have been learnt and this paper reflects these. The paper looks beyond the marketing hype of “IPv6 ready'” claims attached to devices and software to discuss the definitive issues of managing a deployment of IPv6 based on the authors experience. Specifically it documents the observations, lessons and discussions around the implementation of IPv6 on a small to intermediate network. Download his paper here.
