Cisco’s Enterprise engineering team, in collaboration with the Cisco IT team (Known within Cisco as the IPV6 transformers), took the lead in converting one of Cisco’s buildings, building 23 (known internally as “The v6 Island”) in San Jose to an IPv6-only network. Building 23 houses more than 500 employees with at least two devices per person. This translates into more than 120 access points and 20 network devices (Wireless/Switching/Routing). The Cisco IPV6 transformers are here to share this exhilarating journey to roll out the first IPv6-only building in the industry servicing the typical daily business traffic of a large enterprise. Beyond the excitement, how the team handled the initial user anxiety to move to an IPv6 only campus and what it took to operationalize this. It had been a Herculean effort to make sure that critical services were migrated with minimal disruption.
