IPv6 for Enterprise Networks brings together all the information you need to successfully deploy IPv6 in any campus, WAN/branch, data center, or virtualized environment. Four leading Cisco IPv6 experts present a practical approach to organizing and executing your large-scale IPv6 implementation. They show how IPv6 affects existing network designs, describe common IPv4/IPv6 coexistence mechanisms, guide you in planning, and present validated configuration examples for building labs, pilots, and production networks.

The authors first review the basics of IPv6 technology and discuss the drivers behind accelerating IPv6 deployment in the enterprise. Next, they introduce powerful new IPv6 services for routing, QoS, multicast, and management, comparing them with familiar IPv4 features and behavior. Finally, they translate IPv6 concepts into usable configurations. Up-to-date and practical, IPv6 for Enterprise Networks is an indispensable resource for every network engineer, architect, manager, and consultant who must evaluate, plan, migrate to, or manage IPv6 networks.

Shannon McFarland, CCIE No. 5245, is a Corporate Consulting Engineer for Cisco serving as a technical consultant for enterprise IPv6 deployment and data center design with a focus on application deployment and virtual desktop infrastructure. For more than 16 years, he has worked on large-scale enterprise campus, WAN/branch, and data center network design and optimization. For more than a decade, he has spoken at IPv6 events worldwide, including Cisco Live. Muninder Sambi, CCIE No. 13915, is a Product Line Manager for Cisco Catalyst 4500/4900 series platform, is a core member of the Cisco IPv6 development council, and a key participant in IETF’s IPv6 areas of focus. Nikhil Sharma, CCIE No. 21273, is a Technical Marketing Engineer at Cisco Systems where he is responsible for defining new features for both hardware and software for the Catalyst 4500 product line. Sanjay Hooda, CCIE No. 11737, a Technical Leader at Cisco, works with embedded systems, and helps to define new product architectures. His current areas of focus include high availability and messaging in large-scale distributed switching systems.
