An essential guide to IPv6 concepts, service implementation, and interoperability in existing IPv4 environments.
Learn about IPv6 services and the relevant IPv6 features that make them possible
Plan, deploy, and manage IPv6 services at the production level in existent IPv4 networks
Configure and troubleshoot IPv6 networks
IPv6 scales up to support new services that require a very large addressing space; it is positioned to provide the infrastructure for a world where mobile devices, home appliances, and phones will each have their own, unique IP address. In the United States, major Enterprise customers interfacing with the Department of Defense, contractors such as Boeing and Lockheed Martin, have expressed stronger interest in the technology due to their customer requests. Microsoft considers IPv6 a strategic technology because it will free the networks of NATs opening the door to peer-to-peer applications. Deploying IPv6 Networks will present the service capabilities of IPv6, the features supporting these services, and the ways in which they can be implemented in a scalable, production-level network. The information will be presented in the context of the existing IPv4 operational and design concepts, anchoring the discussion to familiar ground and the environments that will be incorporating the IPv6 services. After completing Deploying IPv6 Networks the reader will Understand the state of IPv6 technologies and services and the IPv6 features as they are applied in service deployments. In addition they will know how to design and implement an IPv6 production-level network, using the book's templates and examples. Have the ability to configure and troubleshoot IPv6 in production networks and know where IPv6 developments are moving in the future.

Planning for IPv6
Many readers may be awaiting the third edition of IPv6 Essentials. The event on February 3, 2011, when the IANA (Internet Assigned Numbers Authority) finally announced the depletion of the global IPv4 address pool changed the world. People seemed to wake up and realize it was high time to start planning for IPv6. But where to start?...
Peer-to-Peer Computing: Applications, Architecture, Protocols, and Challenges
Peer-to-peer computing, at least on a conceptual level, is a genuine paradigm
shift—intelligence is at the edge, computing is completely decentralized, and
the network is just there to knit the distributed intelligence together. Indeed,
with advancements in hardware technology, proliferation of the open source
