IPv6 Internet Protocol Standard:
IPv6 - (Internet Protocol Version 6) The
Next Generation Internet, IP Protocol. Started in 1991, the
specification was completed in 1997 by the Internet Engineering Task
Force (IETF). IPv6 is backward
compatible with and is designed to fix the shortcomings of IPv4, such as
data security and maximum number of user addresses.
IPv6 increases the address space from 32 to 128 bits, providing for an
unlimited (for all intents and purposes) number of networks and systems.
It also supports quality of service (QoS) parameters for realtime audio
and video. The draft version of IPv6 was originally called "IP Next
IPv6 also adds many improvements to IPv4 in
areas such as Routing and Network Auto- Configuration. IPv6 is expected to
gradually replace IPv4, with the two coexisting for a number of years
during a transition period.
IPv4 - (Internet Protocol Version 4) The
current version of the IP Protocol.

News Time for a New Internet Protocol: "You can run IPv4 and
IPv6 at the same time. We expect a very long period of coexistence in
the network," the IETF's Margaret Wasserman said. "There's
not flag day -- there's no day you have to convert." (3/6/2003)
