Priority projects are IPv6-based public website and end-to end reference implementation.
Corporations are seeing increased opportunities to their businesses and challenges to their IT organizations from mobility, ‘consumerization’ of IT and virtualization of IT resources. All of these, along with the depletion of IPv4 address space have resulted in the need for migrating to IPv6. Cisco IT has been making the shift gradually, adopting a dual-stack approach to simultaneously support IPv4 and IPv6 traffic. The team’s first project was enabling IPv6 for the cisco.com public website. This case study explores the decisions that Cisco IT has made to support IPv6, the current architecture, and design steps. Cisco customers can draw on Cisco IT's real-world experience in this area to plan their own strategy for IPv6 adoption.
