Get Ready--IPv6 Is Finally Here
Has it been an entire year already? A year ago many major Internet service
providers and online resources put IPv6 through a test run. Now--In just a
couple days—most of those same IPv6 pioneers will turn on IPv6 for good. Are
you ready for IPv6?
- Most of the PCs, IP-enabled devices, and network hardware sold over the
past few years has included IPv6 technology--at least as an option. Unless
you’re still using hardware and software from 5 years ago or more, it
wouldn’t be unreasonable to expect that you’re already set to take advantage
- If your hardware and software isn’t compatible with IPv6, though, don’t
fret. IPv6 is backwards compatible with IPv4, and the Internet will continue
running both in parallel for some time. You don’t need to run out and get
IPv6 equipment this week, but you should definitely make sure any future
purchases are ready to work with IPv6.
Any take if this transition will run smoothly?
