IPV6[Internet Protocol Version 6]

Suraj Sharma, Yojna Arora


The Internet is migrating from IPv4 to IPv6. To determine the features for research test bed product selection, we compare the up-to-date information of IPv4 and IPv6. Currently IPv6 network penetration is still low but it is expected to grow, while IPv4 address pool is projected by Regional Internet Registry to be exhausted by the end of 2011. The  reason  why  uptake  of  IPv6  is  still  low  is  because  of  high  cost  of  service  migration  from  IPv4  to IPv6,  successfully  used  of  IPv4  Network  Address  Translation  for  Intranet  and  unproven  return  of  investment in  IPv6  technology.  This  paper  aims  to  review  few  migration  path  from  IPv4  to  IPV6  and  some  of  the IPV6 products.
