Many enterprises are planning to transition their working environments to IPv6 over the next two to 10 years. But long transition horizons should not fool IT organizations into thinking that all IPv6 issues can be deferred to the future. End points - PCs and Macs as well as smartphones and tablets - are enabled with IPv6 today. Carriers provide IPv6 services, and moderately modern routers and switches are IPv6-ready. These facts raise a key issue: you may very well have IPv6 connectivity and traffic in your enterprise today. Learn how to get visibility into IPv6 traffic - how much, what applications, who's doing it - to take full control of your IPv6 transitions. Blue Coat PacketShaper provides real-time application and content-level visibility and QoS control of IPv6 and all application traffic on the network.
