Internet Protocol (IP) defines how computers communicate over a network. IPv4 contains just over 4 billion unique IP addresses, which were completely allocated to specific geographic regions on February 3, 2011. As the Internet transitions, organizations must adopt IPv6 to support future business continuity, growth, and global expansion.
The need for business continuity and innovation are central to IPv6. Learn how you can preserve existing investments, prepare for IPv6, and prosper in the new world. If we don’t overcome the challenges of IPv4 we will slow down the growth of the Internet and lose momentum as an industry. IPv6 is important to all of us, to everyone around the world. It is crucial to our ability to tie together everyone and every device.
IPv6 expands the number of network address bits from 32 bits (in IPv4) to 128 bits, which provides more than enough globally unique IP addresses for every networked device on the planet. However, it’s not just about addressing. It’s about business continuity and innovation. The unlimited address space provided by IPv6 will allows us to deliver more and newer applications and services with reliability, improved user experience and increased security. These might include: ✔ Multiple internet-enabled mobile devices for every person on the planet ✔ Billions of embedded sensors using technologies such as RFID, IEEE 802.15.4, and Personal Area Networks ✔ Home and industrial appliances ✔ Smart grids Organizations which choose to react to address exhaustion will find their customer base shrinking. It will be more difficult to innovate and more resources will be needed to sustain IPv4 investments. It’s best to be proactive.
Since network tools become essential instrument to ensure smooth running of businesses, thus, company’s main priority nowadays is to keep business continuity by maintaining networks at peak performance. Network administrators before find it too complicated/difficult to locate/isolate the source of any network problem without a network monitoring or management tool where it takes a long time for them to pin point the source of error. For instance, if there are 30 computers in a company office, we have to investigate each machine to find out which one is causing the problem, troubleshoot each or shut it down to verify the effect on the network and move on to the next one. So it will take several hours to find and solve a network fault/anomaly. The situation is more time consuming when the number of computers grows.
