IPv6 Integration in Federal Government: Adopt a Phased Approach for Minimal Disruption and Earlier Benefits
Source: Cisco Systems
U.S. federal government agencies are required to integrate IPv6 into their network infrastructures, but the mandate does not define the required steps. The way an agency plans and executes the IPv6 integration will have long-lasting ramifications on agency operations, IT, and mission effectiveness. It is a myth that organizations must transition to IPv6 all at once. Rather, by integrating IPv6 in phases, IT staff members can learn what they need to know to help their agencies begin experiencing the benefits of IPv6 while the integration is underway.
