LETTER FROM THE EDITOR
As spring turns into summer, we welcome the long days and warmer nights. With the changing of the seasons came a very important day in the Networking and Internet world: World IPv6 Launch Day, which kicked off in early June.
For this year's IPv6 Day, companies like AT&T and Google completely switched to IPv6 in an effort to encourage other Internet service providers, home hardware makers, operating system vendors, and web companies to start preparing their services for IPv6. The day was a success and debunked a lot of the myths associated with this protocol. Check out our slideshow in IT Business Edge to learn more about this subject matter.
With the ushering in of IPv6, this issue of the Peeks will take a deeper dive into this protocol to highlight common transition problems as well as some best practices in combating them.
Thank you for subscribing to the Peeks Newsletter. Hopefully we will all enjoy a warm – but not too hot – summer season as we watch the transition to IPv6 blossom.
FOCUS ON: Best Practices for Transitioning to IPv6

IPv6 will provide users with better security and is poised to improve VoIP and unified communications services through its advanced quality of service. While IPv6 will provide tremendous benefits, deploying it properly can be challenging.
To help you prepare for the switch, we've compiled the following list of resources:
