Deploying IPv6 in WAN/Branch Networks

Chapter Description

This chapter provides and overview of WAN/branch deployment and also covers WAN/branch IPv6 deployment considerations, WAN/branch deployment over native IPv6, and includes an example of WAN/branch implementation.


This chapter describes how to deploy IPv6 in the branch network. The branch profiles described were the single-tier, dual-tier, and multitier. The configuration example was based on a hybrid branch example that included elements of each of the three tiers. In addition to IPv6-over-IPv4 VPN solutions, a native IPv6 IPsec example was given for those customers who have service provider support for end-to-end IPv6 transport. The profiles described are certainly not the only ways to deploy IPv6 in this environment, but they provide options that can be leveraged based on the branch environment.
