The world is abuzz with the new IPv6 coming to replace the old IPv4.
OK maybe not abuzz but we all know its coming and has been for years but is this going to be a problem?
Well though there obviously has to come a time when a change over is required to carry on moving forward and keep up with the ever increasing demands on technology. Once this change over occurs, there will be enough ip addresses to have millions of addresses for every person on the planet.
Estimations of the time I.P.v4 will be exhausted vary from around 2011 to 2012. At the time of writing we are expecting the switch to start occuring in mid 2011.
With the new features of v6 we can see a much faster and more flexible net for the future, of course only time will tell.
