IPv6 (Internet Protocol Version 6)

Hi All,

   Greeting from TelecomTigers Team,

Today let discuss about IPv6 Protocol Overview,

           As we all know, that currently millions/billions of users are connected via Internet around the world, & there is continuous growth of Internet usage in Future too, which includes connection of various devices like mobiles/smartphone, vehicles, other devices, etc., which requires more n more unique IP's,

but there is certain amount of Unique IP's i.e. 2⌃32 Addresses (4,294,967,296 which is around 4 Billions Addresses) available with current IP Version i.e. IPv4 (Internet Protocol Version 4 which we normally call as - IP),

So, as the User Devices are Increasing day-by-day, we are running out of these unique IP's, & hence we need some other way & to overcome the issue, before all IP's are Utilized, our researchers came up with IPv6 i.e. Internet Protocol Version 6.

Note :- Its NOT a New Protocol but a New/Modified version of IPv4 (which was having limitation of Unique IP's).

In IPv6, we have Overcome the limitation of Unique IP's by Increasing it Bits Limit from 32 to 128 i.e IPv6 has 2⌃128  Addresses (3.4 x 10⌃38 Addresses), & also making it Hexa-Decimal which overall makes longer address location,

lets see some comparison between IPv6 over IPv4,

Advantage of Using IPv6 Over IPv4,
  • Provides More Addresses w.r.t IPv4.
  • Supporting Growth of Internet.
  • Provides Better Security.
  • Better Handling of IP's for All Devices. 

Comments are most Welcomed,
