Abstract: Discussion of IPv6 seems to be increasing in industry forums and publications. The US Federal Government has recently thrown its weight behind an IPv4-to-IPv6 transition. Some claim that our reserves of IPv4 address space are dwindling rapidly.

Is it time to roll out IPv6 in service provider networks and start offering services to consumers and enterprises? Is there really a demand? Is this just OSI networking all over again, or is there something more substantial here? IPv6 supporters from the IPv6 Business Council come together with IPv6 skeptics from Service Providers to clear the air on what may be an unneeded and massively disruptive transition or an amazingly enabling technological evolution—or both.
