The Challenges of Next Generation IP Address Management: Reduce Complexities, Streamline Management and Expedite the Adoption of Next Generation Network Technology
The introduction of IPv6 into network environments will present significant challenges for even the most seasoned and experienced professionals and organizations. Complexities relating to how IPv6 networks must be allocated raise significant network management and planning concerns. The concept of managing IPv4 and IPv6 is expected into the foreseeable future, and the interaction between them is somewhat foreign and comes with its own set of complexities and challenges. These are just a few of the issues that will face those responsible for keeping the networks of today running, as well as for those responsible for building the networks of tomorrow. Innovative, best-in-class management solutions like VitalQIP software from Alcatel-Lucent Technologies, provide the tools that are critical for the adoption of IPv6.
