Too many engineers still believe that the only significant advantage of IPv6 over IPv4 is that it is larger. While this is technically true, it is not the whole truth. This presentation briefs explores two difficult business problems and their IPv6-centric solutions, clearly outlining the superiority of IPv6 in certain architectures. The presentation ends with a brief discussion on network automation that relates specifically to these IPv6-centric solutions. Attendees are also given access to professional whitepapers detailing each solution as well as the source code for all automation tools discussed.
