Where IPv6 adoption is concerned, it's natural to focus on the larger themes -- themes the Infoblox IPv6 Center of Excellence routinely covers: the phased approach to IPv6 adoption, the importance of proper auditing of hardware and software, obtaining IPv6 addresses and connectivity, creating (and revising) an IPv6 address plan, and getting content online over IPv6.

It’s long been assumed that every fingerprint, like every snowflake is absolutely unique and no two are alike. While for all practical or statistical purposes this statement is 100% true in human biology or snowflakes, in the world of digital technology and endpoint devices – it is NOT the case.
