IP, the Internet Protocol, is arguably the most important single networking standard in the world today. IP is integral to networking on, and off, the Internet. It figures prominently in both Novell's and Microsoft's flagship networking products. Over 20 years old, the current specification for IP, version 4, is starting to show its age. IPv6 Clearly Explained offers a clear and distinct introduction to IPv6 for experienced network professionals as well as administrators, managers, and executives who will be coping with the upgrade. This book explains why IPv4 needs to be replaced, how IPv6 come to be, and how IPv6 actually works. This book also offers a guide to vendors who already offer IPv6-compliant software and hardware solutions.
