Learn About Cisco Services for IPv6 (PDF – 215 MB)

As part of your IPv6 transition, Cisco helps implement dual-stack (PDF – 274 KB), tunneling, and translation services. These are the main integration techniques; they are required by all environments and adhere to these objectives:

  • Network planning and operations managers must be able to schedule IPv6 deployment wherever and whenever needed.
  • New or updated applications must work with any protocol. IPv4/IPv6 services are possible between hosts/applications.
  • Incremental upgrade and deployment must be possible without service interruptions while reconfiguring routers.
  • Operational costs, learning curve, and support requirements must be minimized.
