With IPv6 transitioning still in a relative state of flux, the need has emerged for methods to control this crucial aspect of IPv6 deployments. This article makes the case for transitioning architectures as a realistic solution to this issue, specifically within large-scale networks. The site transitioning architecture (STA) supports the deployment, operation, and management of IPv6 transitioning mechanisms. The authors provide an overview of the STA's design and operation, noting that its flexible, simple, and secure architecture is suitable for the duration of the IPv6 deployment process, regardless of the underlying network environment.
