Having in mind the vast amount of IP-enabled devices that are activated each day, it is clear that the deployment of IPv6 is a must. Many companies have already implemented some sort of IPv6 networks, but implementation of IPv6 is not a small task. One cannot just switch from IPv4 to IPv6. There are several strategies and different deployment models involved in the process, and there is no “one size fits all” solution. However, there are some methods that are more recommended than others. In this paper, we give an overview of the IPv6 transition mechanisms and their deployment in a specific case study. Our aim is to investigate the pros and cons of the transition mechanisms and decide on the best solution to the given problem.
