Motivation to Adopt IPv6
  • Larger address space for global reachability and
    scalability
  • Simplified header for routing efficiency and
    performance
  • Efficient support for routing and route
    aggregation
  • Server-less auto-configuration, easier
    renumbering, multi-homing, and improved plug and
    play support
  • Security with mandatory IP Security (IPSec)
    support for all IPv6 devices
  • Improved support for Mobile IP and mobile
    computing devices
  • Enhanced multicast support with increased
    addresses and efficient mechanisms

Before Deploying IPv6
  • Before beginning to plan to deploy IPv6, you
    should familiarize yourself with IPv6 , Most of
    the definition of IPv6 is under the control of
    the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) refer
    to http//www.ietf.org
  • What the others are doing !?, The IPv6 Forum was
    created in 1999 to promote and advocate the IPv6
    protocols and their deployment http//www.ipv6foru
    m.com
  • You need to know some IPv6 basics like
  • IPv6 address types and formats
  • ICMPv6, neighbor discovery, security, and
    mobility
  • IPv6 routing protocol OSPFv3, BGP4,IS-IS,
    RIPng, EIGRPv6
  • IPv6 integration and coexistence strategies
    ,vendors support
  • IPv6 host configuration (Solaris,
    Microsoft, and FreeBSD)
  • What to test in IPv6 and How !?
  • How to connect to the IPv6 Internet
  • You need to answer questions like Why
    (Motivation) !?, What is your strategy, Scope,
    Plan, Budget and timeline !?, and how you are
    going to deploy !? .

How to Plan Deploying IPv6 ?
Service Providers
  • ISPs should plan IPv6 deployment in three phases
  • Providing an IPv6 service at the customer access
    level
  • Running IPv6 within the core infrastructure
    itself
  • Interconnecting with other IPv6 service providers

Enterprises
  • Two key ways of evaluating and assessing IPv6
    products and services are
  • Set up an IPv6 domain and connect to an existing
    network
  • Set up two or more IPv6 domains and interconnect
    them over your existing IPv4 infrastructures

9
Pre-Deployment Tasks
  • Before deploying IPv6,
  • Get and Plan your IPv6 address space,
    (service provider) you need to register for
    an IPv6 address contact RIRs LIRs , (enterprise)
    request an IPv6 prefix from your service provider
  • Set up your DNS,
  • Select IPv6 Network management tools,
  • And select required routing protocols.

10
Deployment Strategies
  • A wide range of techniques have been identified
    and implemented worldwide, basically falling into
    the following categories
  • (1) dual-stack techniques, to allow IPv4 and IPv6
    to co-exist in the same devices and networks
  • (2) tunneling techniques, to avoid dependencies
    when upgrading hosts, routers, or regions
  • (3) translation techniques, to allow IPv6-only
    devices to communicate with IPv4-only devices
  • (4) Dedicated Data Links, new IPv6 sites or
    migrating existing sites.
  • All of these are used in combination

Etisalat Core Network IPv6 over MPLS
  • IPv6 over MPLS backbones enables isolated IPv6
    domains to communicate with each other over an
    MPLS IPv4 core network. (Etisalat MSC is a
    transparent Core network)

    Access Point (NAP), in the GCC, Middle East and
    one of the first NAPs in the African and Asian
    regions, built on multiples of STM-1/STM-4 Fiber
    Optic Cables.

27
Etisalat IPv6 Project Objectives
  • Build scalable nation-wide IPv6 native test
    network.
  • Ensure IPv6 standards compliance for Etisalat
    current and future systems.
  • Establish test environment to evaluate the
    compliance of hardware and software with IPv6
    standards
  • Work towards exposure of the IPv6 standards
    within Universities, Colleges and Research
    Centers in UAE.

28
Contract Clause for all new tenders to confirm
IPv6 compliance. Added in year 2001
  • All the supplied systems (hardware/Software)
    wherever IP connectivity is required should
    support IPv6 and IPv4 (simultaneously if
    required) with latest standards of IETF, ITU,
    ANSI and other governing Communication standards.
  • If the system is not compliant to the above, the
    supplier should indicate the roadmap to implement
    IPv6 and clearly state when the system would be
    compliant to IPv6. The upgrade should be free of
    cost.
  • Further the vendor should confirm that the
    product would be kept abreast with the IPv6
    development.
  • Note- For existing systems Concerned
    sections should obtain the Statement of
  • Direction towards IPv6 from the
    Vendors who supplied those systems.
