The Internet continues to grow beyond the capabilities of IPv4.  An
expansion in the address space is clearly required.  With its
increase in the number of available prefixes and addresses in a
subnet, and improvements in address management, IPv6 is the only real
option on the table.  Yet, IPv6 deployment requires some effort,
resources, and expertise.  The availability of many different
deployment models is one reason why expertise is required.  This
document discusses the IPv6 deployment models and migration tools,
and it recommends ones that have been found to work well in
operational networks in many common situations.  This document 
is not an Internet Standards Track specification; it is
published for informational purposes.
