Dual Stack IPv4-IPv6 Infrastructure
• Seems to be a natural approach…but
On WAN, is generally a long term goal, when IPv6 traffic and users will be rapidly increasing On LAN: No L3 switches support IPv6 today…

• Can be configured on Cisco IOS > 12.2(2)T/12.0(19)ST but have to consider
Memory size for IPv4 and IPv6 routing tables IGP options: Integrated versus “ships in the night” Full network upgrade

• IPv4 and IPv6 traffic should not impact each other
Require more feedback and experiments

IPv6 over MPLS Infrastructure

• Service Providers have already deployed MPLS in their IPv4 backbone for various reasons

• Several IPv6 over MPLS scenarios
IPv6 over AToM (no impact on IPv6) IPv6 provider edge router (6PE) over MPLS (no impact on MPLS core) Native IPv6 MPLS (require full network upgrade)

No impact on existing IPv4 or MPLS Core (v6 unaware) Edge MPLS routers need to support AToM Mesh of PE-to-PE connections PE routers can be regular IPv6 routers (V6 over ATM, v6 over FR, v6 over Ethernet…) or forward just the L2 VC (e.g. Ethernet) to the IPv6 router
