The Move to IPv6 is Upon Us.
Simplify Your Transition With Help From

Someone Who’s Been There.
In today’s hyper-connected world, enterprises and consumers
alike are more dependent on technology than ever before. It’s
everywhere—as prevalent in our personal lives as our professional
ones. And because we’ve grown accustomed to being connected
constantly, there’s a growing demand for Internet-based
applications. But unless you take the steps necessary to upgrade
your infrastructure, you might be unable to communicate or use
the Internet and its applications as you do today.
What’s All the Fuss About?
Up to now, most Internet-based applications have used the IPv4
addressing protocol. But that block of addresses is shrinking fast. The
IPv4 protocol simply isn’t equipped to handle the many applications
in use today that require addresses. IPv6, on the other hand, is capable
of handling many more Internet addresses to support both today’s
applications and those yet to come.
And, given the sophistication of many of these new Internet-based
applications, the move toward using IPv6 will likely become the norm.
Your network and those of your network providers must be ready to
support these applications. The answer for most enterprises will be a
migration to the IPv6 protocol.
Historically, the driver for the transition to IPv6 has been the depletion of
IPv4 addresses. This is rapidly accelerating due to the global expansion
of Internet connectivity, particularly in Asia. In addition to the address
depletion, there’s growing recognition that IPv6 will present significant
opportunities for enterprises, as new wired and wireless devices are
developed around the world. We’ll also see the networking of ordinary
appliances and the rapid adoption of broadband access services such as
Verizon’s FiOS.
Migrate to IPv6 and Enjoy the Possibilities
IPv6 will create an enormous Internet addressing space, freeing
enterprises and government agencies from constraints caused by
the dwindling number of IPv4 addresses, and enabling support of
smart appliances and mobile devices. But the benefits go beyond this,
contributing to a more agile, responsive organization:

Control Cost
. Although there may be some initial network
investment, from an overall cost perspective, some features of IPv6
may help manage network and IT operating expenses. This includes
the IPv6 auto-configuration feature, which improves manageability
and streamlines network administration costs.

New product development.
IPv6 can open the doors for newer,
more sophisticated products that meet user demand.

Protection of investments.
Because both public and private IP networks
are moving toward the use of IPv6 technology, investments in the newer
protocol are likely to have a longer service life than IPv4-only arrangements.

Powerful possibilities.
Networks can hold a variety of objects, and IPv6 can
make those networks more powerful than ever. Considering that much of
the traffic over the networks of the future will involve machine-to-machine
transactions—often conducted without any human intervention—the
possibilities to create new transaction types are virtually endless.
Enabling Applications and Meeting Demand
Perhaps the most obvious reason to migrate to IPv6 is the potential to
develop, support, and use new and powerful applications, including:

Sensor networks and telemetry applications for monitoring remote
objects (e.g., vending machines, utility meters, etc.)

Streamlined battlefield communications, including access to real-time
information about equipment and personnel

Vehicle-based applications, such as remote assistance and tracking
capabilities, including on-board diagnostics

Inventory management and control through integration with radio
frequency identification (RFID) systems
IPv6 also enables the deployment and evolution of fourth generation
wireless networks such as Long Term Evolution (LTE), which will
substantially increase bandwidth capacity available to end-users.
When You’re Looking to Migrate, Look to an Expert
Major communications carriers must deploy IPv6 in their networks before
their customers can take full advantage of its benefits. At Verizon we’ve made
a commitment to evolve our global public and private IP networks to support
IPv6. With many years of IPv6 experience and innovative technologies with
actual customers and applications, we’re ready to help support your migration
to IPv6. Here are some of the steps we’ve taken to prepare:

We’ve been at the forefront of IPv6 testing and adoption for more than

a decade.

Our involvement with IPv6 started in 1998 with the vBNS+ network and
since that time we’ve extended IPv6 to several Verizon networks.

We were one of the first carriers to deploy IPv6 on our public IP backbone.
This effort continues today, and we’ll keep enabling new IPv6 capabilities
throughout our network to meet the growing demand and adoption of
the next generation Internet protocol.
Ready to Make the Switch? We Know the Way.
Our IPv6 Transition Professional Services are designed to help your
organization navigate through the complexity to assess, plan and implement
IPv6 across globally extended enterprise systems. These services are
available to businesses and government agencies around the world.
