How will the change in internet addresses affect your business?

Brocade
IPv6 has long been seen as a long-term solution to the IPv4 address exhaustion problem. But the IPv6 address is not backward compatible with the current address type.
 
This affects Internet service providers and enterprises alike, as it impacts how they are adding and supporting new customers, optimizing current and future computer and network infrastructure investments, providing seamless employee communication, and fulfilling government mandates.
 
Further, it's not possible or economically desirable to replace all networking equipment and all devices to IPv6 all at once.
 
What's needed are solutions that allow IPv6 to co-exist with the existing IP address type, IPv4, and for electronic information using one address type to be delivered to devices using the other.
 
This white paper will help you better understand what IPv6 is, why address exhaustion does not impact all businesses and regions the same, and what the options are for peaceful co-existence of IPv6 with IPv4 on the internet.
