The new IPv6 and the current IPv4 will coexist for many years. A wide range of techniques have been designed to make the coexistence possible and to provide an easy network transition. An organization involved in the IPv6 transition should address not only network issues but also final user applications. The management of the different services must also be revised. This is specially relevant in academic institutions where educational, production and research networks live together in the same environment. This document is intended to give the reader a more comprehensive and accurate picture about the IPv6 transition procedures that may be accomplished by the different University members to introduce IPv6 smoothly and successfully.
