In this 90-minute session we will be tackling a major issue and it is NOT yet-another IPv6 exhaustion case. We understand making every single router dual stack is a real pain and can open the doors to new bugs, security vulnerabilities and entails a steep learning curve but still the IPv6 customers are knocking on our doors with urgent needs. So that, in this session we’ll demystify two little-known architectures namely 6PE and 6VPE and we will demonstrate how they can enable operators to keep their current infrastructure on IPv4 yet still support islands of IPv6 locally and globally in a quick and non-invasive fashion. This session is aimed at tearing down the gruesome walls between the traditional network operators and the world of IPv6 MPLS to satisfy the growing needs to IPv6 using what has been proven and known to the industry for over a decade. We’ll show that most operators are under negligible pressure to upgrade the cores and backbones in order to support IPv6. Yet, they are under tremendous pressure to support the new addressing on the edges of their networks. This could be a manufacturer needing IPv6 in their product testing labs, a software engineering company running IPv6 only for their development teams or even a small MPLS VPN service provider approached by customers about their IPv6 enabled sites or even access to the IPv6 Internet.
