The next four chapters will cover the topics essential to designing an IPv6 addressing plan. In Chapter 4, we’ll take a deeper look at IPv6 subnetting while Chapter 5 discusses the core concepts and principles behind IPv6 address planning. In Chapter 6, we’ll review the methods of obtaining IPv6 address allocations (as well as the key policies that impact how we get and use them). Chapter 7 puts it all together to walk you through the creation of an IPv6 address plan.
