IPv6 has been the “emerging” standard for a couple years now. IPv6 was developed to replace the current IPv4 standard (what happened to IPv5?) and help to address some of the shortfalls in security and reliability with the protocol as well as to expand the available address space. It hasn’t taken the world by storm, but it is slowly spreading throughout organizations and the Internet. In recent tests, however, the IPv6 Consortium has determined that there is a learning curve that exists for network administrators to effectively implement and leverage IPv6. The protocol itself seems solid, but administrators need to know more about how and where to use it and which devices are compatible. Read IPv6 will require learning curve for network admins¬†on Computerworld.com for more details about the test and some of the issues that were uncovered.
