IPv6 High Availability Strategies

Overall rating: 5.00 Instructor: 5.00 Materials: 5.00 more …

The IPv6 evangelists were promising solutions to numerous network problems when developing the new protocol suite, but all we’re effectively left with is a slightly different IP stack with longer addresses. The IPv6 stack did manage to fix a few obvious IPv4 problems, but also introduced new concepts and untested approaches.

While it’s perfectly possible to deploy a production-grade IPv6-only network using today’s IPv6-capable products, you have to be deeply familiar with IPv6 protocol suite to get all the details right – and this presentation will tell you how to do that.
