Abstract: This research work explores various aspects regarding the introduction and analysis of transition strategies to the Internet Protocol Version 6 (IP-v6). We firstly analyze the different ways of transition as of IP-v4 to IP-v6. These ways are not integral parts of IP-v6 itself, rather they have administrative nature or they reside on lower layers of ISO/OSI model. We give an overview of non-technical issues and layer-2 options (targeted to distinct types of organizations and networks) which will aid in implementing the transition strategies supporting the Internet Protocol Version 6 (IP-v6). We also present a transition roadmap for each of these strategies in terms of addressing scheme; layer-2 technologies; routing, application and tunneling protocols; security problems relevant to transition and network protocols. Moreover, a comparative analysis of these strategies are presented using different criteria such as scalability, methods used for transition to native IP-v6 connectivity, degree of deployment difficulty and others. We hope this work will be found useful by both network operators and designers, and will be used to design strategies for transition to IP-v6 protocol based on the presented strategies, or at least as a reference.
