You have IPv6 address space, now what?

By Erin Scherer

Once you received IPv6 address space, what did you do with it? We recently went on social media and asked you to share the very first step you took after obtaining IPv6 address space. After all, an IPv6 deployment happens one step at a time.

Here’s a look at what some of you had to say:

We gathered the network teams and applications teams together to discuss addressing plans and action item next steps. #VT

The next step would be to configure your Internet routers to advertise your shiny new #IPv6 prefix to all your upstream Internet peers with MP-BGP. #TipsFor6 #Get6

I configured my internet router to give all users access to ipv6

Just enable OSPFv3 and #IPv6 on your router interfaces and watch with wonder as the neighbor relationships form magically without having to configure any addresses #TipsFor6

And from LinkedIn…

“[We] created an address plan and advertised the IPv6 prefixes to our upstream provider.” – Brent McIntosh, IP Operations, CWC

As you continue sharing your experience with IPv6, you make it more accessible for others to begin their deployment as well. If you’d like to participate, just tweet us @TeamARIN about the first step you took after obtaining IPv6 address space, and we’ll continue sharing your responses on Twitter.

Still struggling to get started with IPv6?

We’re here to help. Let us know what obstacles you’re dealing with or what might be holding you back from making the move to IPv6. We’re always looking for ways to develop more resources to help get you on the right track. Send us an email to or tweet us at @TeamARIN. Also, stay tuned because later this year we’ll be launching our first “Getting Started with IPv6” training. Registration will be opening soon.
