Will my company need to buy new equipment for the upgrade to IPV6?
In many cases IPv6 is already part of equipment or can be installed as a software upgrade. I cannot give you a general answer, it depends on what you have and how old it is. Generally one can say that if you have devices that you acquired recently, IPv6 should be included. One of the first tasks companies will have to do is to create an inventory of their devices and software and find out to what level they support IPv6. This is part of the tasks for creating a transition strategy.
