IPV6

IPv6 is the successor protocol for IPv4 ,IPv4 address space is getting depleted and we need to deploy IPv6 soon to sustain the Internet Growth.and IPv6 uses 128 bit address and provides a very large address space.

IPv4 Challenges

  • Limited Address Space
  • Network Address Translation is preventing end to end IP communication
    • Voice over IP
    • Teleconference (Multimedia)
    • Peer to Peer Communication
    • Instant Messenger
  • End to end Security at IP Layer
  • Provides unlimited address space (It offers 340 undecillion addresses)
  • Restores End to End IP Communication
  • Improved QOS & Security
  • Scoped Addresses
  • Efficient Forwarding

Benefits of Moving from IPv4 to IPv6

IPv6

Easier management of networks Networks must be configured manually or with DHCP. IPv4 has had many overlays to handle Internet growth, which demand increasing maintenance efforts. IPv6 networks provide autoconfiguration capabilities. They are simpler, flatter and more manageable, especially for large installations.
End-to-end connective integrity Widespread use of NAT devices means that a single NAT address can mask thousands of non-routable addresses, making end-to-end integrity unachievable. Direct addressing is possible due to vast address space - the need for network address translation devices is effectively eliminated.
Unconstrained address abundance 4.29 x 109 = 4.2 billion addresses - far less than even a single IP address per person on the planet. 3.4 x 1038 = 340 trillion trillion trillion addresses - about 670 quadrillion addresses per square millimetre of the Earth's surface.
Platform for innovation and collaboration IPv4 was designed as a transport and communications medium, and increasingly any work on IPv4 is to find ways around the constraints. Given the numbers of addresses, scalability and flexibility of IPv6, its potential for triggering innovation and assisting collaboration is unbounded.
Integrated interoperability and mobility Relatively constrained network topologies restrict mobility and interoperability capabilities in the IPv4 Internet. IPv6 provides interoperability and mobility capabilities which are already widely embedded in network devices.
Improved security features Security is dependent on applications - IPv4 was not designed with security in mind. IPSEC is built into the IPv6 protocol, usable with a suitable key infrastructure.
