IPv4 Transition to IPv6

What is IPv6?

IPv6 or IP version 6 is the next generation Internet protocol which will eventually replace the current protocol IPv4.  The primary difference is that IPv6 uses 128 bit addresses as compared to the 32 bit addresses used with IPv4.  Among other things, this improvement is expected to make assigning addresses to wireless devices easier and accommodate the myriad smart network enabled devices that will surround us in the future.
