Survey: Moving from IPv4 to IPv6

IPv6 for a Better User Experience

IPv6 expands the number of network address bits from 32 bits (in IPv4) to 128 bits. This provides enough globally unique IP addresses for every networked device. The change is critical to the task of accommodating bring-your-own-device (BYOD) access in education, and Internet of Everything connectivity trends.

However, IPv6 is not just about addressing. It's also about continuity of operations and innovation. The unlimited address space provided by IPv6 allows for delivery of more and newer applications and services with improved reliability, user experience, and security. Find out how Cisco solutions can help your organization take full advantage of the transition to IPv6.
