One of the first steps in an IPv6 deployment project is to obtain an IPv6 prefix for your organisation and create an IPv6 addressing plan. Thanks to the growth of IPv6 deployment globally, there is more experience and new best practices are created that can assist with such a task.


This session will present the top 5 major points you need to consider and focus on when writing your addressing plan. The aim is to provide attendees with guidance and suggestions.

Some of the points covered will be the following:
- Splitting up the IPv6 prefix based on various criteria
- Picking the right size of prefix to delegate for Homenet considerations
- Possibility and potential impact of /64 per host (draft-ietf-v6ops-unique-ipv6-prefix-per-host)
- Addressing the data center
We will conclude with two examples of real IPv6 addressing plans - from an ISP and an Enterprise environment.
