The reporter underlines that the internet is growing rapidly, much faster than anticipated at its inception. As technology, society and economies progress, there is an escalating need for connectivity across various domains…

Events that have triggered this situation include demands such as mobile computing platforms, delivery of high definition video streams and perhaps even virtual reality scenarios.
At the very basic level, the internet is all about the exchange of information from one point to another. It all depends on the way this information transfer is managed. The system planned out for this many years ago worked well and is still working. Although by now it is heavily burdened and inefficient for the current requirements. The core of this system is the Internet Protocol (IP) that allows data to stream from one point to another. The protocol in use at the moment for internet communication is Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4).
With increasing demand from users, the IPv4 protocol was seen as inadequate. Thus the need for an updated protocol that incorporates support for greater functionality, is easier to manage and faster in functionality. This new protocol has been in development for a number of years and is now being considered as the next step in providing a better internet experience from the infrastructure point of view.
The following discussion enumerates the problems and limitations of IPv4, comparison of IPv4 and IPv6, the current state of IPv6 deployment and transitional strategies that will be needed for a smooth change over to IPv6.
The unforeseen exponential growth of the internet is fast becoming an issue due to the limited address space available in the IPv4 header. IPv4 supports 32-bit addresses. It has recently become a greater cause for concern as most available addresses have been allocated and a very small number are left that will be used up in the very near future. As the number of internet users increases exponentially worldwide, there is the impending possibility of address exhaustion. Security is fast becoming a major issue as the internet increases in scope and capability.

Huge rise in number of internet hosts is the basic reason of a deficiency in IP addresses. It will ultimately use the entire available address space. Additionally, the unexpected increase in home based networks has forced the internet protocol to be changed from IPv4 to IPv6.
The internet protocol (IP) is the main communication protocol used for relaying packets or datagrams across an internetwork through the use of Internet Protocol Suite. Since it is responsible for routing datagrams across network boundaries, the IP is the principal protocol that establishes the internet.
As a result, the U. S. government recently mandated IPv6 compliance regulations and requirements to help with the transition process between IPv4 to IPv6 platform. The new mandates particularly require all government agencies to begin to have emails, websites and other online services available over IPv6.
Internet2 and inter are compared in this paper to find out the differences that are prevalent in the two networks. After the comparison of the two networks, there is a discussion of IPv4 and IPv6. As internet2 is the improved version of internet, likewise, IPv6 is the improved version of IPv4.
It can typically transmit data rates up to 10 Mbps. The IEEE Ethernet standard 802.3 (‘IEEE Ethernet’ 2011) defines all the configuration rules laying down a network and also defines the networked devices’ interaction with one another.

While agreeing to be interviewed by the National Public Radio, he requested that he be identified only by his first name lest he is recognized and made to face the backlash of those in his country who are looking for opportunities to act against all who assisted the US during its Iraqi operations.
IPV6 is a modern mode of addressing and was established recently, in fact, not all nations or internet users have fully adopted the usage of this form of addressing. Machado, Stanton, & Salmito (2013) stated that statistics reveal that there are close to 4 billion
The protocol that is usually used for assigning the unique addresses to computers on the internet is known as internet protocol (IP).
Assignment of IP addresses is done either permanently by configuring the device’s hardware or software
