IPv6 (Internet Protocol version 6) is the future of Internet telephony. And this book is your guide to that future.

IPv6 is the replacement for the currently used IPv4 (Internet Protocol version 4). IPv6 will offer increased IP addresses (full 128-bit addresses, compared to the 32-bit addresses of IPv4), enhanced security, and greater robustness. It will also be fully “backwards compatible” with existing IPv4 systems. These capabilities will finally make Internet telephony a viable competitor to conventional switched telephone networks. In this book, Dan Minoli clearly explains IPv6 and how telephone networks can be built on its foundations.

This is not just another IPv6 book; instead, it focuses on those aspects of IPv6 relevant to Internet telephony systems and voice networks. Minoli uses a compare/contrast approach, exploring where IPv6 is similar to IPv4 and where it differs, to let you quickly grasp the essence of IPv6 and the similarities (and differences) between current IPv4-based systems and IPv6-based systems.

If you will be designing, implementing, or maintaining the next generation of Internet telephony systems, then you need the information in this book!

• Explains the essential concepts of IPv6 and how they relate to Internet telephony
• Describes how Internet telephony systems using IPv6 are different from, and better than, Internet telephony systems based on the older IPv4 standard
• Discusses how to transition existing IPv4 Internet telephony systems and conventional switched systems to IPv6-based systems
• Extensive treatment of security issues, including IP layer encryption and authentication methods
• Explains connection techniques, including “plug and play” approaches, for equipment used in IPv6 systems

• The first title describing how the next generation Internet protocol—IPv6—can be used for Internet telephony
• Explains IPv6 as it applies to Internet telephony (VoIP)
• Shows how IPv6 gives better security, QoS, and signal integrity in Internet telephony

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
VoIP still doesn’t scale easily to carrier-class customer bases or service levels. The issues? QoS, firewalls and NAT, and security, to name a few. The long-term solution? Voice over IPv6. Yes, IPv6, long awaited, much maligned, but finally gaining worldwide momentum. If you’re a networking or telecom pro -- especially at carriers and equipment providers, but also in the enterprise -- it’s time to get ahead of the curve. Daniel Minoli’s Voice Over IPv6 is the book to read.

Minoli’s been everywhere from ARPA to Bell Labs, done everything from leading-edge wireless to venture capital. His VoIPv6 primer is deeply knowledgeable. It’s also exceptionally readable. Minoli walks through issues ranging from signaling and SIP to presence applications; thoroughly explains the limitations of today’s VoIP, and shows exactly how VoIPv6 overcomes them. There’s coverage of the transition, plus a welcome “applied” discussion of building tomorrow’s 3G VoIP nets. Bill Camarda, from the July 2006 Read Only

From the Publisher
“What I really liked about this book is that is has excellent complete coverage of VoIP itself and IPv6. You can use the book to learn these from scratch or just get a refresher.” - Electronic Design, Louis E. Frenzel, July 2006
