Nope. http://www.nanog.org/mtg-0405/augmentation.html and http://www.nanog.org/mtg-0405/pdf/rockell.pdf Although it's dated, I don't believe it's changed (much) at all. the added complexity is: 1) software testing/validation . need to test v6 transport to/from box . need to test v6 igp (ospfv3, isis, rip, w00t) . need to test v6 ibgp . need to test v6 ebgp 2) added link configuration . need to assign a /31 to link and a /126 3) added network config complexity . need to add v6 ibgp and ebgp peers . need to validate nobody forgot step #2 in the path 4) some devices do IPv6 in software, this means using limited rotuer cpu resources for something that is done in hw for ipv4. 5) internal policies to make 1-4 happen, including increased budgets for IT tools, etc.. require serious commitment at large corporations. - jared -- Jared Mauch | pgp key available via finger from [email protected] clue++; | http://puck.nether.net/~jared/ My statements are only mine.
