inet6 consult brings insight into ISP networking practices to the enterprise. Read more on the about page.
We shouldn't gauge the success of IPv6 by looking at how much IPv6 replaces IPv4, but by how much IPv6 complements IPv4. And it's already doing that quite well today by making IPv4aaS (IPv4 as a service) possible. And IPv4aaS will make ISPs require IPv6 when peering with streaming services and other big content providers.
inet6 consult can provide quick answers on any of the topics below, or work with you to create or update a network architecture, write a report or an implementation plan, as well as execute implementation/migration plans and provide training.
For more and more organizations their connection to the internet has become a critical business asset that needs better reliability than what a single connection to a single service provider can achieve. However, "multihoming" to two or more service providers means participating in world wide routing with the BGP protocol yourself.
A possible next step is bypassing service providers altogether and directly connecting to other networks, usually by connecting to an internet exchange and "peering" with other connected networks. Technically, this is very similar to connecting to ISPs, but the non-technical aspects are very different—it's essential to understand the business of peering to achieve good results.
