Transition Challenges

Recommendation
Transition Plan
• Phase I
– Dual Stack network
• Each user has IPv4 and IPv6 addresses
• Phase II
– Users have IPv6 address only
– Access IPv4 through Carrier Grade NAT (CGN)
• NAT64
• DNS64
Network Challenges
• IPv6 is a new network
– Limited support on IPv6
– IPv4 Tier-1 providers ≠ IPv6 Teir-1 Providers
• Network Management
– Some management devices doesn’t support IPv6
– Little experience on managing IPv6 network
• Access network
– Limited availability of IPv6 supported modems
– Upgrading current modems
Transition Challenges
• No more IPv4 addresses
– Dual Stack will not last for long time
– The forecast of IPv4 depletion was 2012
• limited content on IPv6 network
– Introduce IPv6 to IPv4 NATing (CGN)
– Use Private IPv4 addresses
• End Users
– due to additional costs associated with the upgrade.
– Some users applications doesn’t support IPv6.

Recommendation
Recommendation
• Content providers in KSA
– Connect to IPv6 network
• Buy IPv6-ready devices.
– Make sure your devices support the features that you
need
• No NATing in IPv6
– NAT is not a security protocol
• Train your team on IPv6
– Attend MENOG workshops on IPv6
