Our external web, e-mail and DNS-servers are supporting both IPv6 and IPv4, we have ”deployed IPv6″
Nowdays everyone knows that there are no chance to continue with the IPv4 and the IPv6 is the only future proof option/ solution. Almost a year ago we had 22 blocks of IPv4 left and responsible colleagues around the world started a good work for deployment of IPv6 in their company/organization. They have put lots of energy to convince the decision makers for approval towards the IPv6. We have heared that lots of these colleagues mention that they have ”deployed IPv6” by having IPv6 support in external web, e-mail servers and in DNS.
Let me first congratulate these colleagues for doing a grate job, it was not that easy to convince management for allocation of resources, money, etc. for the IPv6 deployment. But my very humble question is whether if they have any plan for a complete deployment of IPv6 in their company ?
Did you consider all of the applications, clients, internal systems, Operation Support System, Business Support System, billing system, cusomer care system, etc? And what about the Database server?
In my opinion the job just started and what I am trying to say is, Delopying
of IPv6 in 3, 4, 5 …10 servers is not really a full deployment of IPv6 and the
work have only being initiated in your organisation.
Yes, you need a complete plan, buget, personell and equipment to go ahead and successfully deploy IPv6 in a structred way in your comapny, it may take 2 month or 4 years. But remember that the fact is that the full scale IPv6 deployment is crucial for your company.
Don’t you agree?
