Considerations When Using IPv6 Addresses

This chapter supplements Chapter 1, Planning the Network Deployment by describing additional considerations if you decide to use IPv6 addresses on your network.

If you do plan to also use IPv6 addresses in addition to IPv4 addresses, ensure that your current ISP supports both address types. Otherwise, you would need to find a separate ISP to support the IPv6 addresses.

For an introduction to IPv6 concepts, refer to the following resources, see Internet Protocol, Version 6 (IPv6) Specification.
