There are many business benefits to migrating to IPv6 now. Organizations that postpone their IPv6 migration risk stifling innovation and losing global connectivity with customers, partners and suppliers, especially those in emerging markets who have already migrated to IPv6. Strategies to prolong IPv4 like deploying NAT64 or purchasing blocks of unused IPv4 addresses will only delay the inevitable. To reduce migration costs and risks, you need a migration plan and practical roadmap to IPv6. IPAM provides a solid foundation for a successful IPv6 migration.
A successful IPv6 strategy can be broken into six manageable phases. BlueCat brings a structured approach to these six critical phases.
|Discover||Automatically discover all IPv4 and IPv6 resources on your network to prepare for IPv6 and identify potential security gaps.|
|Plan||Plan your IPv6 environment based on a deep understanding of your existing networks and addresses that are already in use.|
|Model||Create and model IPv6 blocks and networks including local and global unicast address space for optimal design. Add IPv6 hosts and define IPv4, IPv6 or dual addresses for each host.|
|Map||Map IPv6 networks and addresses to existing IPv4 devices and track dual-stacked IPv4/IPv6 hosts by DNS name, MAC address or device.|
|Implement||Deploy IPv6-enabled DNS hosts and create the necessary IPv6 AAAA records and corresponding NAPTR records alongside existing IPv4 DNS data.|
|Manage||Simplify the ongoing management of IPv6 and dual-stacked environments with a cohesive, business-centric view of your entire naming and addressing infrastructure.|
