Implementation of transition and coexistence mechanisms for IPV4-IPV6 protocols in computer centers on supported high performance academic networks

Carlos Andrés Martínez Alayón, Roberto Ferro Escobar, Víctor José Arrieta Zambrano


This document aims to contextualize the reader about some of the mechanisms that currently exist for IPv4-IPv6 transition and evidence some aspects that must be taken into account when evaluating and implementing some of them, specifically in centers of high performance computing and academic networks to support research projects. It also aims to show the implementation and support of IPv6 in e-learning technology platforms.


IPv6 transition; Dual Stack; tunneling; ISATAP; 6to4; Teredo; SIIT.
