Transition to IPv6

Hear about Cisco's commitment to the Department of Defense as they transition to IPv6.

IPv6: Preparing Your Network for New Technologies

IPv6 protocol is being mandated by the federal government for compliance across all federal organizations by September 30, 2012. It is designed to replace IPv4, the Internet protocol currently deployed and used most extensively throughout the world.

The key benefits of IPv6 include:

  • Simplified packet header for routing efficiency
  • Mandatory IP Security (IPSec) implementation for all IPv6 devices
  • Improved support for mobile IP and mobile computing devices
  • Enhanced multicast support with increased addresses and efficient mechanisms

Whether your organization is in the public or private sector, Cisco has a strategy to help you successfully transition to IPv6.
