Ipv6 / Edition 2by Peter Loshin
Pub. Date: 04/01/2004
Publisher: Elsevier Science
The second edition of IPv6: Theory, Protocol, and Practice guides readers through implemetation and deployment of IPv6. The Theory section takes a close, unbiased look at why so much time and effort has been expended on revising IPv4. In the Protocol section is a comprehensive review of the specifics of IPv6 and related protocols. Finally, the Practice section provides hands-on explanations of how to roll out IPv6 support and services.
This completely rewritten edition offers updated and comprehensive coverage of important topics including router and server configuration, security, the impact of IPv6 on mobile networks, and evaluating the impact of IPv6-enabled networks globally. Pete Loshin's famously lucid explanations benefit readers at every turn, making Ipv6: Theory, Protocol, and Practice the best way for a large diverse audience to get up to speed on this groundbreaking technology.
* The comprehensive, accessible, and up-to-date resource needed by network engineers and support staff, product developers and managers, programmers, and marketing professionals
* Divided into sections on theory, the protocol's technical details, and techniques for building Ipv6 networks, this book covers not only the protocol but the ways in which the protocol can be integrated into networks.
* Covers critical topics in depth, including router and server configuration, security, value assessment, and the impact of Ipv6 on global networks

Pete Loshin, the author, excels at making advanced networking concepts clear and easy-to-understand for the IT or networking generalist. This should be the first book on IPv6 you read, and, unless you are an IPv6 development engineer, it may well be the only book on IPv6 you need to read. Unlike technical books that bury the reader in details from the outset, this book provides context first, starting with a brief overview of IPv6 and how it improves on IPv4 - the current widely-deployed global network protocol. This holistic approach to explaining IPv6 provides much more than reference material or detailed configuration-level information (although that level of detailed information is in the book too). Pete's latest book will help you really *understand* IPv6, from 'what triggered the development of the new protocol', to 'IPv6 basics', to 'how to configure IPv6 network devices and host computers'. Each major topic is covered - addressing, security, multicasting, QoS, neighbor discovery, autoconfiguration, mobility, transition, services, deployment planning, and futures (full disclosure: I contributed to this book). Considering the enormous success of the Internet and the pervasive native of IP-networking, and considering that IPv6 will be here soon and likely be *the* network protocol for the next 20 years, every IT professional should know something about it. This book is the way to get that knowledge.
