Page 3: IPv6 IPv4 Presentation

A communications protocol is a formal description of digital message formats and the rules for exchanging those messages in or between computing systems.

Protocols may include signaling, authentication, error detection and correction capabilities.

Communications Protocol

“A description of a set of procedures to be followed when communicating is called a communication protocols"

-Protocols are to communications what algorithms are to computations

-Protocols are to communications what grammar is to writing.

Information cannot be sent without an address.

There needs to be an address established from where information is coming and where it is supposed to go.

An Internet protocol address is a unique identifying number that is assigned to each computer that is connected to the Internet.

What is an Internet Protocol (IP) Address ? or

An example of IP Address

Page 5: IPv6 IPv4 Presentation

Static IP Addresses

When a computer is programmed to use the same IP address by an administrator each time it is turned on, this is known as a static IP address.

Dynamic IP Addresses

When a computer is assigned an IP address automatically each time it connects to the Internet, this is known as a dynamic IP.

Types Of IP Addresses

Page 6: IPv6 IPv4 Presentation

There are currently two versions of IP addresses in use:

IP version 4IP version 6.

There are millions and millions of IPv4 addresses possible however, the explosion of the Internet in the 1990s has almost exhausted all IPv4 addresses, hence the creation of IPv6.



Page 7: IPv6 IPv4 Presentation



232 = 4.3 billion IPv4 addresses

2128 = 340 undecillion IPv6 addresses

Quick History of the Internet Protocol (IP)

Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4, or just “IP”)First developed for the original Internet (ARPANET) in spring 1978Deployed globally with growth of the InternetTotal of 4 billion IP addresses availableWell established and used by every ISP to connect customers to the Internet.

Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6)Design started in 1993 when IETF forecasts showed IPv4 depletion between 2010 and 2017Completed, tested, and available for production since 1999Total of 340,282,366,920,938,463,463,374,607,431,768,211,456 IP addresses availableUsed and managed similar to IPv4

?Who allocates IP Addresses?

African Network Information Centre (AfriNIC) for Africa American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN) for the United States, Canada, and several parts of the Caribbean region. Asia-Pacific Network Information Centre (APNIC) for Asia, Australia, New Zealand, and neighboring countries Latin America and Caribbean Network Information Centre (LACNIC) for Latin America and parts of the Caribbean region Réseaux IP Européens Network Coordination Centre (RIPE) for Europe, the Middle East, and Central Asia

IPv4 Depletion Situation Report

Each RIR received its last IP block from IANA on 3 February 2011.

The IANA free pool of IPv4 addresses has reached almost 0%.

While each RIR currently has IPv4 addresses to allocate, it is impossible to predict when each RIR will run out.

Page 14: IPv6 IPv4 Presentation

Why a New IP?1991 – ALE WG studied projections about address

consumption rate showed exhaustion by 2008.

Built on the experiences learned from IPv4

– new features

– large address space

Available IPv4 Space in /8s

128-bit IPv6 Address


8 groups of 16-bit hexadecimal numbers separated by “:”


:: = all zeros in one or more group of 16-bit hexadecimal numbers

Leading zeros can be removed

IPv4 & IPv6 Coexistence

• Today, the Internet is predominantly based on IPv4.

• For the foreseeable future, the Internet must run both IP versions (IPv4 & IPv6) at the same time. (When done on a single device, this is called the “dual-stack” approach.)

• Deployment is already underway. Today, there are organizations attempting to reach your mail, web, and application servers via IPv6...

IPv4 & IPv6 - The Bottom Line

• We’re running out of IPv4 address space.

• IPv6 must be adopted for continued Internet growth.

• We must maintain IPv4 and IPv6 simultaneously for many years.

• IPv6 deployment has begun.
