13 Network Challenges IPv6 is a new network Network Management Limited support on IPv6IPv4 Tier-1 providers ≠ IPv6 Teir-1 ProvidersNetwork ManagementSome management devices doesn’t support IPv6Little experience on managing IPv6 networkAccess networkLimited availability of IPv6 supported modemsUpgrading current modems
14 Transition Challenges No more IPv4 addressesDual Stack will not last for long timeThe forecast of IPv4 depletion was 2012limited content on IPv6 networkIntroduce IPv6 to IPv4 NATing (CGN)Use Private IPv4 addressesEnd Usersdue to additional costs associated with the upgrade.Some users applications doesn’t support IPv6.
16 Recommendation Content providers in KSA Buy IPv6-ready devices. Connect to IPv6 networkBuy IPv6-ready devices.Make sure your devices support the features that you needNo NATing in IPv6NAT is not a security protocolTrain your team on IPv6Attend MENOG workshops on IPv6
