What is IPv6?
Last Updated 5 years ago

IPv6 is the next-generation internet protocol.  It consists of a 128-bit addressable address as opposed to a 32-bit IPv4 address (such as 107.161.160.47).

The IPv4 protocol permitted us to assign approximately 4.3 billion IP addresses to devices on the internet.  The internet has quickly outgrown this address-space and now requires more.  IPv6 is 128-bit addressable and expands the assignable numbers up to approximately 320 trillion trillion trillion.

Simply put, the push for IPv6 is here.
