Horizontal Integration Poster Child

In many cases, IPv6 transition may be as simple as turning it on in networks and enabling it in application code. IPv6 is the horizontal integration poster child. It impacts, at some point, every user, every network element, and every application (existing or new) across the global communications domain.

It is important for all network managers to act now to access their IPv6 readiness and take the necessary steps to migrate their networks to enable new services and capabilities like Web 2.0 content mash-ups, ubiquitous access, predictive healthcare, advanced warfighter capabilities and anywhere/anytime nomadic mobility leading to presence-based, self forming networks.
