No, this is step 2 and /48 is not necessarily the right answer.

Step 1 is to evaluate your network and figure out your addressing needs.

If you have a single corporate office and are not an ISP, then /48 is fine.

If you have multiple locations, then a /48 per location is more appropriate.

If you are an ISP, then you need to look at a more involved address planning exercise.
