IPv6 Address Management

Diamond IP has supported IPv6 address planning in its IPAM products since 2003. Our solutions enable you to track and manage your IPv4 and IPv6 address space together using our logical container feature. This allows you to easily associate dual stack subnets and drill down to dual stack devices. We support automated IPv6 block and subnet allocation with the click of a button, affording you the simplicity of allocating your IPv6 address space using best-fit, random, sparse, and/or random allocation methods. Individual address assignments can be defined using address templates and directly through our web user interface to add IPv6 addresses as the "next" in the subnet, mapped to the MAC address, or random. We also support DHCPv6 to allow allocation of IPv6 addresses and prefixes. DNS of course also supports IPv6 and we help you automate creation of ipv6.arpa domains based on subnet allocations as well as device AAAA and PTR resource records.
