About IPv6
IPv6 is short for “Internet Protocol Version 6”. IPv6 is the “next generation” protocol designed by the Internet Engineering Task Force IETF to replace the current version Internet Protocol, IP Version 4 (“IPv4”).

IPv6 fixes a number of problems in IPv4, such as the limited number of available IPv4 addresses. It also adds many improvements to IPv4 in areas such as routing and network autoconfiguration. IPv6 is expected to gradually replace IPv4, with the two coexisting for a number of years during a transition period.
