You Have IPv6 Address Space, Now What?

You Have IPv6 Address Space, Now What?

Once you received IPv6 address space, what did you do with it? We recently went on social media and asked you to share the very first step you took after obtaining IPv6 address space. After all, an IPv6 deployment happens one step at a time.

Here’s a look at what some of you had to say:

And from LinkedIn…

“[We] created an address plan and advertised the IPv6 prefixes to our upstream provider.” - Brent McIntosh, IP Operations, CWC

As you continue sharing your experience with IPv6, you make it more accessible for others to begin their deployment as well. If you’d like to participate, just tweet us @TeamARIN about the first step you took after obtaining IPv6 address space, and we’ll continue sharing your responses on Twitter. Want more tips for getting started with IPv6? Check out our library of case studies featuring organizations that have made progress on their IPv6 journey.

Still struggling to get started with IPv6?

We’re here to help. Let us know what obstacles you’re dealing with or what might be holding you back from making the move to IPv6. We’re always looking for ways to develop more resources to help get you on the right track. Send us an email to or tweet us at @TeamARIN. Also, stay tuned because later this year we’ll be launching our first “Getting Started with IPv6” training. Registration will be opening soon. For more information about IPv6, check out our website or make your first IPv6 request. We wish you luck on your deployment journey, whatever stage you may be in.
