Product Description

From the Back Cover


85050-3

For the Internet to continue its extraordinary growth, the IP protocol must evolve to support new addressing and routing techniques. After years of debate, the new IP protocol, IPv6, has been finalized—and the transition is underway.

In this completely updated guide to IPv6, the former Chair of the Internet Architecture Board explains the new standard in detail. Discover how IPv6 delivers:

  • A new addressing architecture to support rapid Internet growth.
  • Support for multicasting and anycasting.
  • Support of real-time multimedia and other applications.
  • Enhanced security, including encryption and authentication.

Learn how IPv6 differs from IPv4—and how to prepare your networks, equipment, and software. Walk through transition options, including a dual-stack strategy and tunneling. See how to “plug-and-play” the IPv6 protocol, minimizing the impact on other network software and hardware. Understand how IPv6 can be carried over ATM networks.

IPv6 is coming—and as an Internet professional, you need to understand it. This book delivers the critical, timely information you need for planning and deployment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excelent in-depth analysis of IPv6 11 May 2000
Format:Paperback
I have to say that this book is very well writen. It presents the technical aspects of IPv6 as well as historical explanations about the decisions made on the process Ipv6 standardisation.
If you have enough IPv4 technical background and want to start on IPv6 in my opinion this book is and excelent starting point.

If you're technical enough to read the RPCs, there's no reason to shell out for this book.

2.0 out of 5 stars The book is full of explaination about headers 22 July 1998
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
The book really lacks in illustrative examples. An endless list of headers & explaination for the same is given. As the old adage goes "A picture is worth a 1000 words", I really could not find a single proper example, nor a comparitive example relating it to IPv4.

2.0 out of 5 stars quite outdated 23 April 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
OK intro for technical readers, but there is a lot here that is completely out of date since the book was written in 1997. Lots of new and revised standards have been published since then.

4.0 out of 5 stars good overall review 11 April 2000
By yuletak - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
IPv6 is still going thru some changes. While the book is not as up to date as I would like it to be, it does a pretty good job of explaining what is (was) different from IPv4 and the why of it. As for comparisons to IPv4, they can be found throughout different sections of the book, tho not in detail. Overall, a good guide to IPng w/ good explainations.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good book, though out of date. 17 May 2000
By Uri Raz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is a good book written by someone who really knows the material.
The book *is* somewhat out of date - a three years old book on a developing protocol cant be current [and it's my expectation that a new edition would be printed soon], but it's a very good way to get the big picture about it before starting to read the fine details in the RFCs.
As other reviewers wrote, the comparison between IPv4 and IPv6 is a little lacking, but this book is *not* intended to be read as one's first text on IP - it's audience is people who are already familiar with IPv4.
