IPV6 and Pix firewalls

NetNinja asked

Last Modified: 2012-05-11
I need an expert opinion not just regurgitated facts.

Will Pix firewalls be able to handle the increased traffic generated from IPv6 traffic? So for example

If I am using a 515 Pix for my small business, I know I don't have a lot of traffic maybe 10k users are logged on at a time due to multiple website hosting.
Will the 515 Pix handle the IPV6 or would you think the next best thing would be to upgrade to an ASA-5510?

The 515 has served my company well and of course it's a logical step in the upgrade direction, but is it really needed?
