IPv6? You would have seen this term everywhere, almost anywhere. Why? What’s so special? Web Analysts says World IPv6 Day is nearing, and what I would say is Internet is running out of addresses. Almost 4 billion IP addresses have now been assigned to various institutions and now that leads to the crisis we are facing right now.
IPv6 is the new version of the Internet Protocol which allows a lot more devices to connect to the Internet, easily.
Technically speaking, IPv6 is the sixth revision to the Internet Protocol and the successor to IPv4. Mostly similar to IPv4 and this one provides unique and numerical IP addresses necessary for Internet-enabled devices to communicate. IPv6 is capable of solving the crisis since it utilizes 128-bit Internet addresses, whereas IPv4 uses 32 bits for its Internet addresses.
