FCW Forum: Will you be ready for IPv6?

Agencies have less than six months to implement IP Version 6 on their network backbones. As this deadline quickly approaches, agencies received a final draft profile from the National Institute of Standards and Technology only recently. While NIST says the profile is intended for post-June IPv6 implementation, it is one of several guidances or standards that have been in the works for a long time. Do you feel you have the necessary information and tools to meet the June deadline? Do you have other, more pressing concerns, such as funding? Or is everything going along just swimmingly?
