[Bp_ipv6] Private Sector: Discussion Needed on Business experiences

I'm not terribly well-versed in the issue of IPv6, but I think what you
proposed is a fantastic idea (I'm currently listening to the YT video you
linked). It also seamlessly fits into the existing text of the IPv6 BFP.

Are there any pointed questions we can use a foundation for a discussion?

> Greetings all,
> Glenn, thanks kindly for spending some time with the running draft. I'm

> section, below:
> *"Business Perspective" can be interpreted very broadly - do we have a
> sense of what to focus on here?Ideas: *
> *#1 - businesses with web presences can support IPv6 by enabling support
> on their web sites for IPv6. This is often a first step to a business using
> IPv6.#2 - The corporate networks for many businesses likely already have
> many components that already support IPv6. Certainly PCs, laptops, tablet,
> phones with current versions of their operating system support IPv6.
> Likewise the core routers and switches used by enterprises also should
> support IPv6. It's the remaining steps of i) Obtaining and allocating IPv6
> address spaces for the corporate network, ii) updating internal
> applications to support IPv6, iii) updating legacy devices such as
> printers, to work with IPv6 are the major steps to moving the enterprise to
> using IPv6 internally.I'm just not sure what direction was intended for
> this section*
> What I was thinking is that, given the nature of the BPF as an exercise in
> sharing best practices, we could have a few illustrations from the private
> sector on their use/deployment of IPv6. Given where we are in the drafting
> process, I reckon its best to solicit content and design the section

> It's really a narrative about the experience of deployment. Important
> (obvious to the present company) insights can come out of this. For

> deployment. Or, a business will deploy v6 but after a series of technical
> faults, puts the project on hold.

> common challenges.
> The floor is open for discussion. Please contribute your thoughts.
> True, the section (as with all sections) have the ability to be rather
> broad, but if we have at least three key insights from the private sector,
> and a few case studies, we'd be serving the audience well.
> Sincerely,
> Susan
