This talk focuses on the peculiarities which must be taken into account when building a wireless LAN with IPv6 support based on practical experience deploying IPv6 in the Troopers WiFi Network. This includes, but is not limited to the handling of (link-local) multicast in (Cisco) based WiFi controller environments as well as IPv6 First Hop Security mechanisms on the WLC and the underlying wired infrastructure itself. Furthermore we will try to provide statistics of the IPv4/IPv6 ratio for the Troopers WiFi Network (e.g. how many clients are dual-stacked) as well as the ratio of IPv4 and IPv6 traffic going to the Internet.
Christopher has been involved with IPv6 since 2005 and has performed a number of IPv6 planning, implementation and troubleshooting projects & tasks since then. He leads the network security team at ERNW.
