The paper discusses on the up coming trends and the technologies used in the Internet World. It will explore the topic on IPV6 i.e. Internet Protocol Version 6.
We say Internet Protocol Version 6 but what is this Protocol stuff; get familiarized with what is Protocols first and then we start with the in-depth study of IPV6. Like its previous versions IPV6 is all set to make waves in the Internet World. Here we will see what IPV6 is, why IPV6 is selected and why we need IPV6.The paper justifies what are the problems of the current IP we are using and how it is wearing out with time and increase in number of users.
In addition this will explore a bit of the history of the Internet Protocols and the forums, which are anticipating and sparing their attentions to these development. It covers the description of all the rules used for the addressing methods in Ipv6. Included here is also the compatibility of the Ipv4 address with that of Ipv6. How an Ipv6 address can be converted in to the present Ipv4 address to identify the node is also covered.
This will give a brief idea on some of the key features of IPV6 where it discusses IPV6 as a re-engineering effort against IP technology. Features includes firstly Larger IP address and it use for end-to-end communication. Deploy more technologies the future prospects and covers within it Auto Configuration describes and stateless host like mandatory facilities, Security tells about this mandatory feature, friendliness to traffic technologies describes about the compatibleness of Ipv6 with future technologies. Then it continues with multicast becoming mandatory, better support to ad-hoc feature facilitating anycast, it also a cure to routing tables, it specifies the simpler header structure, allows flexible protocol extensions which provides hardware acceleration, smooth transition form Ipv4 showing its compatibility with Ipv4, follows key design principles of Ipv4 justifies its proper structure.
