Unfortunately, business leaders often resist change, citing the old adage, “If it ain’t broke (yet), don’t fix it!” That’s certainly a short-sighted approach in this case. There are numerous benefits to making the switch to IPv6 as soon as possible – and plenty of reasons it’s unwise to wait too long.
That’s why we’re pleased to announce the release of our handy IPv6 presentation template that you can use as a starting point when presenting on the topic. It outlines what’s happening with IPv4 as well as the ongoing global transition to the new protocol, and provides a helpful overview of the power of IPv6 when it comes to automation, scalability, and speed.
In particular, if you’re looking to introduce your own company’s leadership on the idea of adding IPv6 to your networking stack, the template will give you a head start on articulating why IPv6 implementation is the most sensible business strategy – and help you attain buy-in from key decision-makers.
We understand it can be difficult to navigate the topic of IPv6, especially given its highly technical nature, so we want to give you all the tools you need for success!
