Implementing IPv6 in your network does not require tearing down your aging IPv4 network and replacing it with a new IPv6-enabled network. Instead it is possible - and often wise - to run the IPv4 and IPv6 networks in parallel in what the industry calls a "dual-stack" network, thus adding IPv6 capabilities to your network's existing IPv4 capabilities. While such an endeavor is certainly not trivial, it might be easier than your think. The following article introduces a six step plan for implementing IPv6. It has served me well in past deployments and will hopefully give you some ideas and guidance.

A very simple way to enable legacy IPv4-based web applications to be reachable via IPv6 is to use an IPv4/IPv6-enabled load balancer - such as the F5 Big-IP LTM - to frontend the application. This is e.g. the approach that Netflix took in mid 2012 to enable their service for IPv6 via the AWS Elastic Load Balancers (ELBs). In this post we will use the F5 Big-IP Local Traffic Manager (LTM) load balancer to provide this capability.
