Yes, you can get by without it, but probably not for long. Adopting the new IPv6 protocols will be a challenge, and there are ways to work around the shortages of IPv4. So why bother to make the move? Because any workarounds eventually will get in the way of new services and devices, and the rest of the world will pass by those who do not adapt. What are the requirement, what management options are available and how should we implement the new protocol and the required management.
