Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) is a communication protocol and a
successor of IPv4. The reason for inventing IPv6 was mainly because of the limited number of addresses in
IPv4. The main tasks of the new version of the protocol are following: increasing the space of available
addresses by increasing the length of the address from 32 bits to 128 bits, simplifying the protocol header
and providing its flexibility by introducing extensions, as well as introducing support for service classes,
authentication and data consistency. The protocol is also known as IP Next Generation and IPng.
Another great news from our lab
Our hosted installations are now available via IPv6. You can still use the previous URL...
