Internet Protocol version 6, IPv6, was designed to replace IPv4 and allow for a vastly larger number of addresses. Much of the focus of IPv6 has been on encouraging network operators to migrate to the new addressing scheme. However, migration to new addresses is just a small part of the challenge. The new IPv6 networks must be managed! Network operators will use SNMP (the Simple Network Management Protocol) to manage their new IPv6 networks.
In order to effectively manage the new IPv6 networks with SNMP, a new set of IPv6 MIBs (management information bases) is required.
Learn about the transition from IPv4 MIBs to IPv6 MIBs in this informative webinar series by Sean Routhier.
