Addresses the migration and macro-level scalability requirements
Discusses IPv6 network constructs, AutoConfiguration techniques, and the suite of IPv6 and related protocols
Describes IPv6 enterprise/institutional network migration scenarios and coexistence issues
Examines scenarios and techniques for introducing IPv6 into carrier networks
Explores application aspects of IPv6 transition, issues related to mobile environments, and security in IPv6 networks
The implementation of IPv6 is essential to the continued growth of the Internet and the development of new applications. The Handbook of IPv4 to IPv6 Transition Methodologies provides a wealth of best practices and procedures that will help corporations plan and implement a smooth transition to IPv6.
A blueprint for successful transition, the Handbook of IPv4 to IPv6 Transition—
Provides a tutorial of IPv6 addressing capabilities
Looks at IPv6 network constructs, specifically key routing processes
Examines IPv6 autoconfiguration techniques and the suite of IPv6-related protocols
Discusses all the major IPv6 enterprise/institutional network migration mechanisms as well as coexistence issues
Identifies the various elements in the network and what migration role they will need to play in order to support the transition
Surveys the application and security aspects of the IPv6 transition
Offers the first reference in many years to address the migration and macro-level scalability requirements to support the DoD/DISA/GAO drive for an IPv6-based U.S. Government

CPD consists of any educational activity which helps to maintain and develop knowledge, problem-solving, and technical skills with the aim to provide better health care through higher standards. It could be through conference attendance, group discussion or directed reading to name just a few examples.
