IPv6 transitioning strategies

What strategies can you use to transition to IPv6? I know of dual-stack and tunneling methods, but are there any other options? And is one strategy better for a large enterprise over another?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Hi

there are three different types of transition technology:
- dual-stack
- different types of tunnels such as 6to4, 6rd, Isatap, Teredo and more
- translation mechanisms such as NAT64/DNS64

The choice is:
- go native (dual-stack) whenever you can
- only use tunnels if native doesn’t work
- only use translation if there is no other way to go.

Hope this helps,
Silvia
