IPv6 full definition
The sixth iteration of IP, or the internet protocol, is IPv6. In order for a device to send and receive data from a host to a destination, it must abide by a set of rules known as IPs. We require identifying hosts, their geographic coordinates, IP addresses, and a communication path.
Back to IPv6, which has been around since 1995 forever! The odd thing is that there has been a shortage of available IPv4 addresses, along with other issues. Even still, the majority of companies continue to utilize IPv4. Furthermore, it is now a recognized Internet Standard (IETF) that Internet Protocol version 6 usage will soon begin to increase.
