In the process of planning for an IPv6 deployment, some desire to create a design analogous to private RFC1918 deployments. In this webinar we will discuss the structural differences between technologies such as RFC1918 and unique local addressing (ULA). We will address topics such as why they aren’t the same, where they make sense, where they don’t. We will also discuss the underlying implementations of address selection and how it relates to IPv6 differently than IPv4. Webinar participants should expect a mix of architectural policy and technical depth and come away with a better understanding of ULA and the mechanisms that define it.
