Network administrators—in fact, most IT administrators—are often fraught with anxiety; it pretty much comes with the territory. After all, the daily routine of most employees within an enterprise depends upon reliable connectivity to the Internet and connections with internal applications, other workers, contractors and mobile devices. We all know that if the system goes down, the company loses money on an escalating scale. Now there's a new hurdle for network administrators to consider: Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6). The American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN) announced last month that the well of IPv4 addresses, which have been in use since the 1970s, has run dry in North America. IPv4 was never designed to handle streaming video and other rich data forms. As a result, the adoption of IPv6 is inevitable, and with the right approach IPv6 can be used to strengthen most networks. Only IPv6 offers sufficient address space to facilitate the cloud and the Internet of things; the full benefit of either would be difficult to impossible to achieve using only the limited addressing resources of IPv4. This eWEEK slide show, with industry insight obtained from network management tool provider Infoblox, explains how network administrators can make this adjustment as easy as possible.
