IPv6: Reality or Myths?

by Glen Gillmore

In my quest to learn more about IPv6 and the lack of broad scale deployment, I came across an article by Geoff Huston, titled "Waiting for IPv6." It states that IPv6 doesn't have features that can't already be accomplished with IPv4. Additionally, he goes through many of the key "benefits" of IPv6 and proclaims that they mostly fall into the category of myth.

Latif Ladid and Jim Bound, both from the IPv6 Forum, give a
response to Geoff's article, defending and clarifying various issues.

If you have decided to deploy IPv6, why? If not, why?
