        Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) is the replacement for Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4), the Internet layer of the TCP/IP protocol stack used around the world on the Internet and on private networks. IPv6 restores end-to-end connectivity and ensures the growth of the Internet. Microsoft has deployed IPv6 on its private network for many years. This paper describes the current configuration of IPv6 on the Microsoft corporate network, the short and long-term plans for IPv6, and deployment best practices and lessons learned along the way.
