Getting to Know the IPv6 Address Protocol

IPv6 refers to the next generation of Internet Protocol (IP) that uses a 128-bit address standard.  It is intended to supplement, and eventually replace the IPv4 protocol.  A few advantages of the IPv6 protocol include:

  • Better connectivity for mobile networks and streaming media
  • An easier setup for plug-and-play devices
  • Improved wireless security

You may contact your Internet Service Provider (ISP) to inquire about their support for IPv6.  You may also click on the following articles below to know more about IPv6:
