The purpose of this paper is to provide enterprises with guidance, based on a three-to five-year outlook, on how IPv6 should be included in their network design, planning, and operations starting today. The intended audience is enterprise network administrators. This paper will explore the area of the network and beyond where IPv6 needs to be considered and the reasons to consider it. In 2010 enterprises should assess their position toward IPv6 with an aim to drafting their own requirements, plans, and opportunities. Indeed, some have already identified IPv6 as a networking tool, better than a (re)numbering constraint, and everybody should share this opportunity.
