One fundamental aspect of any IP communications infrastructure is its
addressing plan.  With its new address architecture and allocation
policies, the introduction of IPv6 into a network means that network
designers and operators need to reconsider their existing approaches
to network addressing.  Lack of guidelines on handling this aspect of
network design could slow down the deployment and integration of
IPv6.  This document aims to provide the information and
recommendations relevant to planning the addressing aspects of IPv6
deployments.  The document also provides IPv6 addressing case studies
for both an enterprise and an ISP network.  This memo provides information
for the Internet community.

This document is a product of the IPv6 Operations Working Group of the IETF.
