"Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6) is also called Internet
Protocol next generation (IPng) and it is the newest version of the
Internet Protocol (IP) reviewed in the IETF standards committees to
replace the current version of Internet Protocol Version 4
"The official name of IPng is IPv6, where IP stands for Internet
Protocol and v6 stands for version 6.
"Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6) is the successor to Internet
Protocol Version 4 (IPv4). IPv6 was designed as an evolutionary
upgrade to the Internet Protocol and will, in fact, coexist with
the older IPv4 for some time."
