IPv6

What makes it better

vs IPv4

More IP addresses, 128-bit vs 32-bit, 2^32 = 4.3 billion, 2^128 = 340 undecillion

Easier Multicasting, Prefix allows for 2^32 routable groups

Simplified Headers, Removed unused fields

Extensible Headers, Additional fields can be added

Many devices are IPv4, Computers, routers, modems

Expensive

Deployment

Upgrade Everything, Usually not very effective

Work from the outside In

One thing, dependencies must also be changed
