While searching the web for IP Address Management or IPAM you may have found Infoblox’s new IPAM Express software.
IPAM Express software fully supports both IPv4 and IPv6 address types and helps assist in migration, planning and testing. The software provides basic network discovery and IP address management functions, helping replace manual processes, custom scripts, and spreadsheets with an automated, intuitive tool that makes it easy to monitor and manage IP addresses for the entire network.
Here's the fourth and final installment of my four-part blog on creating an IPv6 addressing plan.
Assigning Function and Location Significance to IPv6 Subnets
As mentioned, one major benefit resulting from the abundance of IPv6 addresses is the ability to assign function and location significance to groups of subnets derived from any larger allocation. While this technique works for any size allocation, we’ll continue our focus on the /48 allocation typical for one site.

Making a change to a router, switch, or firewall can impact the network function or downstream devices. Before moving forward with a change, you need to know what is connected, and dependent, upon the device or interface. In addition, "how" the device is connected can often have significant implications, as network devices don't act in isolation. You can assemble a collection of routers and switches in infinite combinations of topologies to create different networks for different purposes. That’s why it’s called a network. The topology gives the network function and purpose.
A significant percentage of customers I speak to these days are either planning, deploying or using a "Private Cloud." Larger organizations which use Public Clouds are also likely running "Virtual Private Clouds," which have many of the same characteristics as traditional Private Clouds. "Cloud" has a lot of advantages and helps the IT organization be more flexible. In addition, the byproduct is increased complexity of the network.
