The challenge of migration from an IPv4 network to a federally mandated IPv6 network is becoming a reality, and careful planning of your IPv6 transition will be critical to your success. To help you meet your goals for network migration, ISR Computing offers complete service offering, in which engineers can work with your team or partner to plan, design, implement, and optimize the foundational components of your IPv6 network.
ISR Computing can first assess the implications of IPv6 for your environment, including product compliance, address provisioning and management, routing policies, security, and infrastructure design. This assessment also identifies opportunities to take advantage of IPv6 features and functionality to simplify your environment, as well as areas of risk to be considered during your transition to IPv6.
ISR Computing can also analyze your architecture requirements from business, technical, and implementation perspectives. Services include requirements analysis, site survey and logical network design, physical network design, documentation, and creation of an acceptance test plan. ISR Computing can facilitate smooth implementation activities through proven, written procedures and side-by-side coaching.
Delivered by network experts with extensive field experience, the IPv6 Capability Assessment provides a comprehensive view of the state of your network’s IPv6 readiness by conducting a thorough assessment of your Cisco, Juniper, HP or Dell network hardware devices and vendor's software releases. ISR Computing experts document and identify areas of concern that help you readily understand the gaps that could affect a successful migration.
ISR Computing can assist in the design, integration, and coordinated deployment of your IPv6 network and deliver a plan that can help you transition to an IPv6 network, identify and define the transition approach, and recommend transition mechanisms to ease your implementation. Recommendations can include:
ISR Computing engineers will team with your engineers to develop the network ready-for-use plan. The below shows IPv6 Capability Assessment activities and deliverables.
Identify, validate, and confirm the presence of vendor devices and vendor software on your network. Activities typically include:
Confirm capabilities and readiness on identified devices to more effectively determine the appropriate IPv6 design. Activities typically include:
Analyze and present IPv6 assessment results. Activities typically include:
Develop the internal IPv6 readiness and recommendations report. This deliverable typically summarizes:
Network Infrastructure Detailed Design Development is a hands-on approach intended to establish a partnership between your networking staff and ISR Computing engineers. Your technical requirements and design goals are integrated into your IPv6 network design, and ISR Computing takes responsibility for creating your low-level design (LLD) using major vendor's templates, leading practices, and lessons learned.
Your ISR Computing team begins by reviewing and evaluating your IPv6 network documentation and any existing IPv6 network infrastructure designs. The engineers validate and summarize your IPv6 design requirements and develop an IPv6 low-level design that supports those requirements. Throughout the development process, ISR Computing engineers also mentor your networking staff as needed. In this way, the Network Infrastructure Detailed Design Development service can minimize the possibility of costly and time-consuming redesign work even as it enhances the skills and knowledge base of your staff.
The below shows Network Infrastructure Detailed Design Development activities and deliverables.
Conduct an onsite detailed design workshop to gather data and initiate the IPv6 network detailed design development process, which can include:
Team with you to create an low-level design document that typically includes:
Present and discuss low-level design
Network Infrastructure Implementation Engineering can last from 1 to 12 months, depending on your needs and the complexity of your project. Through this service, Cisco Advanced Services engineers take responsibility for producing an IPv6 network infrastructure staging, implementation, and ready-for-use plans using Cisco templates, leading practices, and lessons learned. They also work closely with your staff to help ensure that the sites are ready and technical details are properly specified and implemented before deployment. These efforts not only reduce the possibility of errors or delays during the IPv6 deployment process ,but also offer numerous knowledge transfer opportunities that can improve the proficiency of your staff and encourage a more proactive—and ultimately, more beneficial—approach to network design, implementation, and optimization.
Cisco understands that your need for technical assistance and expert guidance does not end simply because the site surveys have been performed and the implementation plans have been readied for completion. For this reason, the Network Infrastructure Implementation Engineering service includes cutover support.
Cisco Advanced Services engineers facilitate the smooth completion of your IPv6 implementation project by providing consultative, onsite support during the integration of your new IPv6 infrastructure with your live network. They also team with your engineers for post implementation verification and testing to resolve any problems that arise and help ensure that the fully integrated network delivers expected features, functions, capacity, and reliability.
The below shows Network Infrastructure Implementation Engineering activities and deliverables.
Develop a network staging plan, which typically includes:
Develop a network implementation plan, which typically includes:
Develop a network ready-for-use plan, which typically includes:
Provide on-site and remote support for your engineers during implementation of the network ready-for-use plan.
