This year in IPv6, we learned a lot about IPv6 extension headers, and how such a large addressing space allows us to reconsider how IP addresses can improve the Internet. We gained real-world insight into how various economies and organizations throughout the region are deploying and leveraging IPv6 and received plenty of practical IPv6 advice. Here are three of 2023’s best:
- IPv6 architecture and subnetting guide for network engineers and operators — Daryll Swer shared his in-depth practical guide to implementing an IPv6 architecture and subnetting system.
- Telekom Malaysia’s IPv6 readiness journey — Muzamer Mohd Azalan showed how, for Telekom Malaysia, deploying IPv6 was a case of making the most of available resources.
- Enabling IPv6 support for IPv4-only apps on Linux — Pavel Odintsov showed us how to easily enable IPv6 support for apps without it.
Notable mention: Mongolia’s Unitel Group leads IPv6 usage in Mongolia, aims higher — Munkhbat Gansukh shared Unitel Group’s IPv6 migration experience and highlighted the lessons learned and benefits gained from the implementation.
