From IPv4 to IPv6

Getting started

Navigating the evolution of the Internet Protocol

Since its inception, the Internet Protocol (IP) has established itself as the essential pillar of global digital communication, providing the foundation on which the connectivity of our digital age rests. Its constant adaptation has been crucial in meeting ever-increasing connectivity needs and overcoming the technical challenges inherent in an ever-changing environment. We will explore in detail the evolution of the Internet Protocol, with particular emphasis on the significant transition from IPv4 to IPv6.

In our exploration, we’ll discover why IPv6 has become essential. IPv4 address exhaustion was a key driver for its creation, with its extended address space meeting the growing demand for unique addresses. On top of this, IPv6 brings significant improvements in security and functionality, notably with the integration of IPsec security and support for Quality of Service (QoS). Despite transitional challenges, deployment is progressing, supported by growing recognition of its importance to the future of the Internet. Ultimately, IPv6 represents a crucial step towards a more secure, high-performance and scalable Internet.
