Citkomm is a data centre operator. As part of the GEN6 project the different areas of the network infrastructure will be enabled for IPv6. This touches local networks; application server networks and data centre backbone as well as the Internet connection, WAN networks or secured networks to other organisations. The IPv6 transition caused several challenges and pitfalls, that the administrators had to deal with. The contributor will show the experiences that were made at Citkomm to enable the network infrastructure for IPv6. As general strategy a dual stack implementation has been chosen. Due to the variety of operated components the presentation gives a good overview on the actual state of IPv6 readiness for existing heterogeneous networks.
