although there are some minor annoyances, such as setting the netmask on interfaces. You have to enter as 'ffff:ffff:ffff:ffff::' instead of '/64', pretty lame if you ask me.

Also note that IPv6 is not ASIC accelerated, so depending on your configuration and traffic profile you may want to performance test first.

on some models, it still is an add-on license. on others, it's included in the base price. Just tell your reseller you want it for free and you'll probably get it, the usual purchasing tactics apply ;-)
