With the exponential growth of internet services, IPv4, first released in 1981, is becoming outdated. The escalation of corporate intranets, cellular phones with internet access, technology webcasts and file sharing have taken their toll, and there is a need for a greater number of IP addresses. Running IPv6 leverages readers’ existing knowledge of IPv4 and helps apply that knowledge to the newer protocol.

According to author Iljitsch van Beijnum, “The intent behind the book is to present a clear view of the aspects to IPv6 that are of interest to those who’ll be running and administrating the protocol, not to bombard the reader with unnecessary details. This means that the book covers the IPv6 specifications to the degree necessary to successfully operate an IPv6 network.”
