IPv4 to IPv6 Migration
Internet Protocol (IP) defines how computers communicate over a network. IPv4 contains just over 4 billion unique IP addresses, which were completely allocated to specific geographic regions on February 3, 2011. As the Internet transitions, organizations must adopt IPv6 to support future business continuity, growth, and global expansion.
IPv6 expands the number of network address bits from 32 bits (in IPv4) to 128 bits, which provides more than enough globally unique IP addresses for every networked device on the planet.
However, it's not just about addressing. It's about business continuity and innovation. The unlimited address space provided by IPv6 will allows us to deliver more and newer applications and services with reliability, improved user experience and increased security. These might include:
- Multiple internet-enabled mobile devices for every person on the planet
- Billions of embedded sensors using technologies such as RFID, IEEE 802.15.4, and Personal Area Networks
- Home and industrial appliances
- Smart grids
Organizations which choose to react to address exhaustion will find their customer base shrinking. It will be more difficult to innovate and more resources will be needed to sustain IPv4 investments. It's best to be proactive.
