The Internet is officially down to the dregs of IPv4. The adoption of IPv6 is lurching forward. But persistent operational challenges remain as a result of both gaps in the standards as well as lack of operational practice to leverage. This presentation will explore some of those challenges and offer some views on what the path forward may look like.


I plan on covering issues that affect both service providers and enterprises: prefix delegation/home user provisioning using DHCPv6 options, lack of DHCPv6 failover, correlating v4 and v6 hosts in a dual-stack environment, etc.
