Long names and acronyms aside, some of the many excellent resources to be found within the site include:

  • A case study of DREN’s IPv6 pilot program
  • An overview of lessons learned with IPv6
  • An IPv6 tutorial
  • A long list of many IPv6-related training resources, books and ebooks 
  • Information about applications that support IPv6
  • A list of networking products supporting IPv6
  • Suggestions on what to do before you begin your IPv6 deployment
  • IPv6 security information
  • A FAQ

The site includes a great amount of information of value not only to US government agencies and employees, but also to anyone working with IPv6. Kudos to the team at DREN for maintaining the site and we’re pleased to add it to the list of resources we’re promoting here on Deploy360.
