Need To Migrate From IPv4 To IPv6 IPV refers to internet protocol version. Each host or computer that is connected to the internet needs to have its own unique IP address for communication. The main reason that leads to the shift from IPV4 to IPV6 is the growing use of internet. As more and more people or hosts start using the internet more and more IP addresses would be required which could not be provided by IPV4. IPV6 was created in such a way that could support many more addresses than IP4 could. Besides just having to store huge addresses IPV6 came with many more additional features that IPV4 lacked. IPV6 simplifies the process of allocating addresses. It is also essentially handy when there is a change in the network as it can quickly renumber the network. In short the various advantages that IPV6 provides over IPV4 can be summarized as these. Larger address space, multicasting, stateless address auto configuration, support for network layer security, simplified processing by routers, mobility, options extensibility and jumbo grams are a few to name. Even after a decade of IPV6 being finalized there was still a debate of whether the up gradation should be done or not. This issue arose because the transition from IPV4 to IPV6 is very expensive and a highly time consuming process for the enterprise. The return that the enterprise would get of this input would be negligible. The argument that was put forward was that instead of shifting to IPV6 both should be run simultaneously for benefits in the long run. But later IPV6 got an edge over the IPV4.
